Latte ingredients are simple – milk, espresso, and steam. However, to get this drink to come out right, you need to know how to properly time, heat, and pour the ingredients. It’s an involved and interesting process.
This tour introduces travelers to the wonderful world of coffee creations and latte art. Set at Finca Filadelfia, a coffee plantation near Antigua that dates back to 1866, this tour explores the various methods and individual styles involved in making the perfect latte.

Your barista tour guide will teach you about the intricacies of espresso machines and coffee mills; grain preparation and the creation of espresso; varieties of coffee beverages; and the properties and types of milk used in a latte.
