When a Barista is able to let hearts sink

I do admit, a heart looks very different. It is just that the modern day human has agreed to change the way to sketch it. I also admit that baristi usually make flowers with frothed milk on coffee, as opposed to hearts. But in this case, a flower turned into a ‘heart’.

What surprised me was that this form stayed almost unchanged and simply sank as I kept drinking my cappuccino. Finally it reached the bottom of the cup and turned into an undrinkable coffee heart.

The other color of coffee

When visiting various coffeehouses around the world – especially those investing much of their energy in the politics and art of coffee – you will find that many make a conscientious choice when it comes to the color of their cups. Brown and white appear to be the most common ones in the western world, while others go more into contrast and at times exotic colors and forms. Today I found one of the colors that is crucial to the quality of our coffee – the color of ripeness. The highly respected coffee of Grumpy is served in red cups.
