latte art mosaic at Vivace

    Newer Older

    The new Vivace across from REI opened yesterday... had a nice doppio from Kyle J and took a bunch of pics... if I have some free time later tonight I'll try and blog about it.

    UPDATE - blog'd it:

      I need to get over there. In the meantime... I can't get a sense of scale. Is this mosaic on the floor? Is it big, small? That's beautiful work.

      I would love to see an iconic rosetta become the symbol of well-done latte's. Like a quality brand on the door of only those coffee shops that serve coffee with latte art. My understanding is you need a rich crema and well steamed milk. Tonx - can you do latte art without at least making decent coffee? Very cool picture! Is this new store near the downtown REI mothership?

      Jeff -
      the mosaics are maybe just over 3 feet in diameter.

      Rob -
      unfortunately you can do latte art without also doing good coffee, though I think its rare to find baristas that do it exceptionally well who are not also skilled at espresso. There are some cafes out there though that focus more on presentation than quality.

      The wild thing is that in the thumbnail, it almost looks like the real thing and not a mosaic.

      Now I've got someplace to go (and spend money) and contemplate how much money I've just spent at REI.
