The art of microfoam has risen to new heights. A few sites like ilovecoffee and java aficionado are posting pictures of dimensional cats and bears floating on the surface of your morning cappuccino looking as cute as can be. I have trouble with a simple swirl so I’m in awe of the masterful baristas who define gravity to create a 3-D foam.
Italian baristas – how about a microfoam Tower of Pisa? Now that would be an exceptional cup.
