Latte Art Vending Machine Sprinkles Designs Onto Hot Coffee [Video]
Baristas will soon be out of a job if this vending machine makes it way to America.
If you’re catching a flight at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, you might want to give the “Yojiya Cafe Selection” vending machine a try. The machine sells paper cup lattes with special logo prints on the foam. While the latte art is not as artistic as the human creations, the vending machine adds enough charisma to a simple cup of coffee to make it presentable.
Instead of using foam to create latte art, the vending machine “sprinkles” the Yojiya logo with powder. For 200 yen, which is about $2, you can get your custom, freshly-made cup of Joe.
