Step-by-Step Guide on How to Make a Latte:
Step 1: Grinding the Coffee Beans
🔸 Start by grinding your coffee beans using an espresso grinder. For a perfect latte, it’s recommended to use fresh coffee beans that are finely ground.
Step 2: Preparing the Espresso Shot
🔸 Place the coffee grounds into an espresso maker, and then use a tamper to press the grounds down gently.

Step 5: Creating Your Latte Art
🔸 Use a spoon to hold the foam back, and then pour the rest of the milk into your espresso. Once you have poured the milk, use the spoon to add the rest of the milk foam to the top of the latte. You can use a toothpick to create latte art if you are so inclined.
Step 6: Flavoring Your Latte
