If you like your coffee black, you’re out of luck: it’s the foamy milk on a cappuccino that is the perfect canvas for this coffee art.
Costa now has two Ripple machines in the UAE – one will be at the Al Wasl branch for the next few months, while the other will roam – it will be at RedFest DXB this weekend.
The “Instagrammable” concept shows how strong the trend of photographing food and drink before consuming it has become. Oh the things we use our evolving technology to achieve.
Costa isn’t the only “selfiecino” player in town (although it is the most high-tech). Down the road at Umm Suqeim’s Tub of Butter you can order a custom stencil, handmade by an artist, which will then be used to replicate your image in cocoa powder on either a cappuccino, flat white or latte.
You pay a one-off fee of Dh31.50 (that includes VAT) for the stencil. You have to pay that in advance before the design is made, which takes about 24 hours. Once it’s crafted, the stencil will be held at Tub of Butter for the barista to use whenever you fancy some next-level latte art.
