Latte Art: Love It or Hate It?

As Starbucks's dominance slips, I hope more people will turn to local coffee shops for their daily caffeine fix. The number one thing I love about my neighborhood cafe, Murano, is that the cappuccinos come with a pretty foam heart. In my opinion, the best coffee drinks are made with love, and latte art of any kind demonstrates a true passion for coffee-making. How about you: Do you appreciate latte art?

Being mildly lactose intolerant (and generally intolerant of milk in my coffee), I would never order something that gave someone the ability to draw in my foam. However, has anyone seen the latte printer? Check out for a pretty amazing look.

Those are gorgeous, but they'd just make me feel bad once I start drinking and ruin it.

I think Starbucks should start training their baristas to pimp-out their coffee! It's the only coffee shop within a 20 mile radius of my home whose coffee doesn't taste like mud.

I love latte art and have some skill in this area myself. I am, however, a bit of a purist and think that it should be made through the use of the pitcher, long handled spoon and the milk and foam alone. The use of syrup, cocoa powder, stencils, etc. is too contrived and overdone.

I've had hearts drawn in my drinks at a local coffee shop. I think it's nice and interesting, but frankly the barista doesn't need to go to the trouble as I'm going to wreck it almost immediately.

How could anything with coffee be bad? The monkey is so adorable, I'd be so excited if I got one of these coffees. I'd definitely take a picture I also love when the bartenders do 4-leaf clovers on the foam of a Guinness!
