cafe in London has started personalized way of making coffee. It is new form of barista art called "selfieccino". A barista is someone who makes coffee, lattes and frappuccinos in coffee shops. They used to draw chocolate hearts, flowers and swirls in white froth of coffee. However, they have now taken that to new level. They can now put a picture of a customer's face in the white frothy coffee topping. This means coffee lovers can sip on cup of coffee with their own self-portrait in it. The cafe is called Tea Terrace. It is located in one of London's top shopping areas, Oxford Street. The cafe sold over 400 of personalized drinks within days of starting the service earlier this week.
Baristas make use of technology to put portraits of people on top of the coffee. Customers send picture of their face on an online messaging app. The barista then uses machine called a "Cino" to change picture into image on white froth using different food colourings. The whole process takes about four minutes and costs $7.50 for selfie in coffee. The owner of cafe, Ehab Salem Shouly, explained why he started selfieccino service. 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 take photos of everything they do and post their images on social media.
