colour latte art

Colour latte art is now a thing in Toronto

Latte art in Toronto just went next level. Joining the world of rainbow bagels and psychedelic grilled cheese sandwiches, this new, caffeine-laced trend has been embraced by Toronto's Bulldog Coffee.

Owner Stuart Ross discovered rainbow lattes from Mason Salisbury of Sambalatte in Las Vegas. He uses the technique to help train baristas to make latte art.

The effect is created by adding food colouring to milk after steaming and then layering the microfoam into a cup of espresso to form designs resembling a Grateful Dead t-shirt.

The cafe on Gerrard isn't the first to create colourful tulips, ferns and rosettas, but they are the first in Toronto and possibly Canada to add a splash of colour to your morning cup of joe.
