Caffeinated art

A few of us TNT editors took a trip to Mandolin Cafe for a coffee break today.

We were amazed by the latte foam art coming out from behind the counter. Surely, there was an undiscovered artistic genius working the espresso machine.

I asked the Picasso of espresso, barista Ankyl Koontz, what drink was the canvas for his most elaborate creation. He replied, “A mocha.”

And soon this work of art appeared on my mocha.

“They don’t do that at Starbucks,” fellow editor John Henrikson said, eyeing Koontz’s masterpiece.

“And the coffee is better here,” seconded business team leader Marce Edwards.
