A cafe started a personal way of making coffee. It is called the "selfieccino". Coffee shop staff used to draw hearts and flowers in the white coffee froth. Now they have taken that to a new level. They can put a picture of a customer's face in the white coffee froth. The cafe is in one of London's top shopping areas. It sold over 400 of the personalized drinks within days of starting the service this week.

The cafe uses technology to put people's faces on the coffee. Customers send a picture of their face from their mobile phone. A machine changes the picture into an image on the white froth. This takes about four minutes and costs $7.50. The cafe's owner explained why he started the selfieccinos. He said: "It's not enough any more to just deliver great food and great service. It's got to be Instagram worthy." People want to post their life on social media.
