With Christmas just a few weeks away, coffee shops on high streets across the world are getting in the festive mood with their Christmas menus, boosting standard drinks with flavours like cinnamon and gingerbread. A great way to stand out from the crowd is to give your customers a little something extra to make their visit special, and latte art is a 100% guaranteed crowd pleaser.
Expert instruction videos
We’ve gathered a range of Christmas themed latte art videos to impress your customers, friends or colleagues with. We have split the videos out by difficulty level to help guide you to a design that will look great and can be done before the coffee gets too cold!
These aren’t necessarily just for the pros either, home baristas can get in on the fun too, just make sure you start out on the easier designs first to build up confidence and speed.
Beginner – Snowman
While not exactly easy, this version of snowman latte art works by scooping milk foam on top of the coffee before decorating. This is a great place to start on your journey to latte art mastery!
Intermediate – Christmas tree
Building on the same principles as the last video, this Christmas tree latte art takes the decoration to another, more difficult level. It may take a little time, but it looks stunning when complete.
Advanced – Snowman version 2
This alternative snowman is a little different as you’re creating the body with the pour rather than scooping in extra milk foam. This makes it a bit trickier, but the finished design will last longer as it goes all the way through the drink.
Expert – Santa Claus
This last video is definitely only for the seasoned professional. Starting with a complex pouring technique then adding extra decorations, with the hat being made from milk foam with red food dye.
Latte art is a great way to make your business stand out from the competition, but it can be a drain on time for a busy store. One way to fix this is with the WMF Espresso, a classic portafilter style espresso machine that automatically grinds and tamps the coffee for you. The means you get a perfect espresso every single time, and it frees up enough time for baristas to focus on creating beautiful latte art! Download a brochure to see our full range.
