The Rosetta Leaf - Cafe Art

Rosetta / Leaf Art

 Reminder: Make sure you pour the milk as soon as possible. Hold the cup on its ear and a slight angle. Start pouring the milk slowly. You do not want to pour to slowly, this will leave the foam behind in the jug. You also do not want to pour too quick because this will break the crema apart. Pour slowly in a few spots in the cup to break through the crema.

Start pouring the milk in to the back of the cup once the cup seems just more than half full.

Move the jug side to side until you see the foam appearing on the surface. Keep moving the jug side to side until you see a pattern appear. Now slowly move the jug backwards whilst still moving it side to side. When you have reached the end of the cup move the jug in a quick straight line through the pattern.

Quick movements from side to side will create a Rosetta with lots of leaves. Slow movements from side to side will create less and thick leaves.
