What’s that floating in your coffee? Readers share latte art

Coffee always gives a boost but I got an extra lift the other day when I picked up a mocha at a tiny cafe. There was a charming teddy bear staring up at me!

Seattle’s no slouch when it comes to coffee or art, so why not combine the two? Seattle’s Laila Ghambari  did just that when she claimed the 2014 U.S. Barista Championship at the Specialty Coffee Association of America for her latte work.

Next time you pick up a latte or mocha, check the cup before popping on a lid, there could be a masterpiece in the foam.
