Behold the latte printer: an idea whose time has come.



My only grievance is the inventor's choice to commemorate an otherwise respectable latte with the logo of a corporation whose relevance to well-made espresso drinks ranks a negative 10.

Starbucks probably gave the inventor money to make the thing.

I wonder what they used for printer 'ink'?

Well, at least it didn't come up with a "Dunkin' Donuts" logo, which would have been heresy!

Hey, Dunkin' makes a mean cup of joe. Seriously. I practically lived off the stuff one year in college.

I was wondering the same thing. I would guess some sort of edible soy product. Unless this is merely for the fun of it, in which case they might be using actual toner. Yuck!

I don't drink coffee, but if starbucks ranks a negative 10, imagine the business they would have if it was actually good.

Starbucks is fast-food coffee; it's to real espresso what Taco Bell is to authentic Mexican. The small shops make it better and often charge less.
