Frequently Asked Questions
What's your name? Where are you from?
I'm Daphne and I'm from Singapore!
What do you do professionally?
Well I'm only 17 so I'm just a student.
How I got started?
I started experimenting with 3D latte art in December 2016. What sparked my interest was a school programme where I had the opportunity to attend a workshop on the appreciation of gourmet coffee. I was curious about how foam was create for lattes/cappuccinos and searched online for ways to do it at home. Through my research, I discovered 3D latte art. I was experimenting with a french press and found a method to create stable foam to make 3D art on top of my cups. But now, I use a milk frother to create the foam.
How long does each one of your creations take?
Normally 10-20min, depending on its complexity!
How do I do it?
I use all natural food colouring as well as a mix of carob powder and water to draw/colour the foam. For the shaping, 2 spoons and a bamboo skewer!
Doesn't the coffee get cold?
Surprisingly, as I use a double walled mug, it insulates the coffee so although the coffee is not piping hot, it still remains sufficiently hot!
