Putting Starbucks to Shame Watch This Barista In Action

The Beautiful Latte Art of Dritan Alsela

I grew up in a household or more accurately a nation of tea drinkers. The only real exposure I had to coffee as a child was leaning on the window of Bewley’s Coffee House on Westmorland Street in Dublin and watching the big coffee roaster rotating the beans. The aroma was fantastic and on a winter's evening the heat radiating through the window was an added benefit. It wasn’t until I moved to the US that I became a coffee drinker. Now I drink far too much of the stuff.
I love to see a really good barista at work. It puts me in mind of a really good line cook or bar tender. The speed and coordination is quite amazing. I came across this video of Dritan Alsela at work  he really is a talented guy.
