Are Cortados supposed to have foam? I was taught to hold the foam back when making them, but lately i see a lot of my coworkers serving them with a generous amount of foam.

I mean the wiggle, the strokes and stuff?? coz I've been seeing other people do different grips and it made me really curious on each of its purpose or effect. Also when wiggling the steaming pitcher do you move your wrist? or your forearm? or your whole arm? or your whole body(kinda wierd)? haha…Continue
