Step 3

  • When the cup is 3/4 full, pause for a moment and then start pouring into the centre of the cup, wiggling from left to right, pushing out the base of the rosetta towards the front of the cup.

  • Slowly start moving to the back of the cup, still wiggling sideways while gradually levelling off your cup.

  • To finish the rosetta, lift the pitcher and ‘cut’ though the middle of the pattern towards the front of the cup.

"Accidentally created too much foam? Just pour a little of the excess out of the pitcher before you start pouring your latte."

Barista Notes

Before pouring patterns, start with a little pitcher practice. Pour a 'brown' and a 'white' cappuccino and build up your control – and confidence!
