Making Latte Art

I make a latte every morning. I’ve been doing this so long that I have been stumbling onto making latte art. Without really trying, I have started to be able to make some pretty ripples in the foam. It pleased me, so I decided to look up how other people do it.
It turns out I am pretty close to the technique–you sort of pour the milk into the bottom of the coffee and then lift it up and shake it through the surface to create the ripple. Here is a how-to on latte art. I also found a couple of little videos on the subject. Pretty cool stuff!
