    As the related videos on YouTube will show you, this isn’t anything like latte art, which is actually created by the pouring of the milk through the espresso.

    At best you might be able to call this similar to ‘etching’ where a barrista uses the thermometer wand to draw patterns into the cup (sometimes with some chocolate syrup for contrast), but latte art it isn’t.

    Doesn’t make it uncool though!
