Lattes Almost too Beautiful to Drink

A well-served latte revives the brain, warms the heart and fuels the body for early mornings and frequent late nights. It’s the drink of choice for millions of creative professionals, who depend on baristas like alcoholics depend on bartenders.

Coffee Artistas

Many of the most talented baristas—people who prepare and serve espresso-based coffee drinks—have pushed for the creative evolution of their industry, giving rise to the modern day artistic movement of ‘Latte Art’. Today, barista competitions provide an outlet for skilled artisans to demonstrate their skills and original techniques while pouring steamed milk into a shot of espresso. These artistic challenges result in a plethora of beautiful patterns and designs on the surface of delicious, foamy drinks.

If you’re a latte-addict, like myself, it’s likely you’ve been served a mug of coffee with a bit of flair in its foam—likely in the shape of a rosetta, resembling a flower or fern. I can’t go a morning without getting my caffeine fix from the friendly staff at my favorite local coffee shop, Linz & Vail. I appreciate the time they put into the aesthetic presentation of my delicious latte, which only adds to the religious experience of taking my first sip.
