Art on the Cup

“雕刻”咖啡非凡技艺

Vantage Shanghai - - HIGH LIFE 慢生活 -

传统拉花艺术除了需要上好的意式浓缩咖啡、绵密的奶泡、拉花缸之外,决定成败的关键是咖啡师的手感与功力。他/她就如绘画大师,以咖啡为画布,绘制人生和自然的奇思妙想。无论是雅致花草图形、栩栩如生的动物头像,还是抽象的即刻图形排列,都让静态的咖啡灵动起来,增添不少诗情画意。而且,如今的咖啡拉花也不仅仅停留在视觉上呈现纯粹的艺术,对咖啡口味等更为实用功能的诉求也愈来愈高。强调的是牛奶的绵密口感,以及与咖啡本身口味的融合方式技巧,更追求色香味俱全的境界。

Traditional latte art is demanding: a high quality espresso shot, rich cream, a good pitcher, and above all, an experienced and skilful barista. He/she is the painter of coffee, regarding the coffee as canvas, where artful fantasies reside in visual forms. Whether it’s a blooming flower, a vivid animal pattern, or an array of abstract elements, baristas bring life to the coffee. Meanwhile, latte art reaches far beyond visual presentation — it has an increasing demand for pragmatic features, namely the creamy texture of foam, the combination of tastes and the overall drinking experience.
