Last week on Valentine’s day I was invited by Starbucks in Afi Cotroceni for a special experience, to learn how to make art on a latte.

The secret is in the steaming time. After practicing few times you can tell, when the milk has a silky texture it is ready to be poured onto your espresso that is ready and waiting in your cup.

Pouring the steamed milk is challenging first time, even for a artist like me, but once I got it I was ready to get creative. I chose to draw a  heart.

I was very happy with my experience and based on the smile on my coffee, it would seem  that my coffee was happy too.

Now all I needs to be done is to transfer this knowledge to my boyfriend who brings me a coffee in bed every morning.
