#NewTradition #10 – Latte Art Love Birds

Last week I attended a Lavazza Masterclass in Covent Garden to learn a bit more about the history for the brand, along with how to make the perfect cup of coffee. We were shown how to use the frothing wand on our Limited Edition Wimbledon A Modo Mio machines and I made the most delicious cappuccino I had ever made up until that point, but we didn’t have enough time to experiment with latte art. I have wanted to be able to do latte art for a long time so last night I shut myself in my kitchen, armed with nearly 3 litres of milk, over 25 Lavazza A Modo Mio capsules plus a few coffee cups and set to work with my machine.

I also decided to toast and caramelise a few almonds and crush them on top, since almond pairs so well with coffee. This recipe is really simple, especially if you have an ice cream churner. I would love to see this treat on the menu at Wimbledon – refreshing frozen yoghurt with the welcome caffeine hit and the delicious …
