Agnes Tang (JSA Instructor)

This course is designed to teach the 'Etching・Latte Art' (Etching technique) in coffee art. Within a minimum of 1 day (7 hours), you can learn over 40 techniques from basic to advanced, including JSA's expertise in high artistic design.

Compared to the 'Free Pour (Latte Art)' technique, which involves creating patterns by moving the milk pitcher and utilizing milk circulation during milk pouring, the 'Etching' technique is easy for beginners to learn. It allows you to create three-dimensional, colourful, and highly artistic designs.

This beverage-focused course by JSA was developed in collaboration with Nestle. The course utilizes the 'Nescafe Dolce Gusto capsule coffee machine', allowing you to easily enjoy authentic coffee at home. The course aims to provide an easy and accessible learning experience.

In the 'Latte Art Instructor Certification Course,' you will learn the basics and applications of 'Etching・Latte Art' (techniques for creating patterns using frothed milk), Cream Art, and 3D coffee art. Even beginners in coffee art can enjoy and quickly learn these techniques and obtain the coffee latte art instructor qualification in as short as one day.
