Latte Art Goes High Tech

Creative baristas will often add some flair to cappuccinos or lattes by cleverly pouring the milk in a way that leaves an appealing design on the surface of the drink.  In fact, this simple gesture has become the artistic focus of competitions such as the World Latte Art Championship.

Latte art is now going high tech.  Steam CC, a start-up and parent company of Ripples, unveiled the Ripple Maker, which allows baristas to produce high-resolution images and messages on lattes and cappuccinos.  The Ripple Maker works by combining patented 3D printer mechanics with Ink-Jet printing technologies to “ripple” natural coffee extract onto the surface of any foam-topped drink.

“Latte art is one the most shared images on social media. We’re taking latte art to a whole new level,” said Yossi Meshulam, CEO of Steam CC.

See the Ripple Maker in action on the company’s website or on YouTube.
