“Trick or treat” was yesterday. Today, the question is: “Trick or treat for Halloween coffee”. While little mummies, ghosts and vampires go in search of candy, adults can pass the time with a Halloween-style coffee brew. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to turn your cappuccino into a spooky hot drink.
You’ll need a cup, a pot, a milk frother, fresh milk and aromatic espresso. In our online shop you will find our certified Caferino espresso beans. For the perfect milk foam, it is best to use milk or a milk alternative with a fat content of at least 3.5%. The optimum temperature for milk foam is between 65 and 68 degrees. With creamy milk foam you are ready for the white coffee art.
Motif 1: The pumpkin
The typical latte art for beginners is the heart. The barista pours a circle and pulls back the milk jug to shape the circle into a heart symbol. You can simply omit the last step with the pumpkin. Use a stirring rod or latte art tool to refine the shape and paint scary eyes and a scary jagged mouth into the milk foam. To make your cappuccino darker and the milk foam stand out even more, use two espresso shots.
