Synopsis: Maybe you're too busy or lazy to learn how to free-pour (pour by hand) latte art. And maybe you don't own an espresso machine. But you'd still love to create beautiful lattes at home.
There's hope, says Calgarian Susan Zimmer. You can drag a long needle (or a bamboo skewer or toothpick) through the milk to expose the espresso underneath, creating a pattern in the foam.

Or you can simply use a coffee stencil.

Made of plastic or metal, the stencil sits on top of your latte; you then dust the stencil with a light coating of powdered cinnamon, chocolate or cocoa.

Lift up the stencil and presto! You'll have a beautifully formed design on top of your latte.

Zimmer, who has worked in the coffee industry for more than 20 years, is the author of the bestselling book I Love Coffee: Over 100 Easy and Delicious Coffee Drinks.
