What is Coffee Art


Welcome coffeebrandslist readers and followers.  Today we will attempt to educate you on exactly what is coffee art ?

Just before we get into more detail about this topic.  I just wanted to mention how much fun we had, researching all about this booming trend in the coffee world.  Let’s Get into it.


In very simple terms coffee art or gourmet coffee art as it can sometimes be referred to, simply means combining 1 or 2 shot espresso with steamed milk.  Of course there is a lot more to it than that as is explained below.

More and more coffee shop owners big and small, are trying to add more personal touches and skills to their coffee drinks to add a more professional and enjoyable, almost unique experience, to indulging in your coffees.

It takes a lot of practising by coffee shop Barista’s to perfect these techniques in order to bring you, your unique coffee experience.  When Baristas add a touch of flair and coffee arts to your drinks, it makes the whole experience from start to finish that much more enjoyable in our opinion.

While I expected Baristas having to do some kind of special training in order to learn the coffee arts, our research found that you don’t really need to.  You can recreate these works of art on your own, with the right coffee equipment, good espresso coffee and practice.  

I’m sure there are many official courses you could go on, but as this isn’t really necessary we decided to leave that bit out, in order to concentrate on providing you, with some tips and demonstrations to learn the skills of coffee art yourselves.
