Step 2

  • Hold the tip of the steam wand at the surface of the drink and start steaming the soya drink.

  • Create a vortex by holding the steam wand 1cm from the edge. You should hear a whispering sound. This phase is called ‘stretching’.

  • When the drink reaches body temperature, ensure the steam wand remains under the surface, whilst maintaining the vortex.

  • Close the steam wand when you reach 65ºC.

  • Wipe and purge the wand.

Step 3

  • Waltz your jug until the drink has a glossy surface and the foamy and liquid parts are properly mixed

  • Split the contents of the jug in two, if you’re pouring more than one cappuccino.

  • Tilt the cup and pour in the middle of the espresso, slowly straightening the cup while filling up.

"Let your soya drink sit for around 20-30 seconds after steaming and your latte art will look much sharper!"

Barista Notes

When working with soya, best latte art results are achieved if you wait 20-30 seconds before waltzing.
