Do you care if your coffee has latte art?
I take far too much pride in my latte art when working, but sometimes I wonder if customers give a damn what their coffee looks like. Do you?
Last week I made these two coffees. They are the product of months of spillages, rage and ugly lattes, and I was very pleased to carry them over to the table. Sad, I know.
But as a customer, do you care if your coffee has latte art on it? Do you even notice? I imagine some people think that its achieved by some kind of template-and-sprinkles arrangement like in Costa.
When I'm the customer, latte art is something like a seal of quality for me. It says: this coffee has been made with care by someone who knows what they're doing. But is this true for everyone else?
