To many coffee fans, coffee making could well be considered an art. And which artists are at the top of their game? The professional ones, of course: the baristas.
A top coffee house barista not only knows the difference between a ristretto and a regular espresso shot, he or she can prepare any espresso based drink with ease and flair. Baristas have also often been known to whip up masterpieces in latte or cappuccino foam – everything from hearts and flowers to more complicated designs such as dragons.
