... now know im a coffee snob...
i got a lil mad at a barista today for not adding foam to the top of the latte...
WHAT IS A LATTE WITHOUT THE FREAKIN FOAM!!!
(Update Monday 1/12/09):I found the rationale i use for the purpose of the foam in a great cup/pint of coffee...is its temperature insulating function...
"Finally, this somewhat similar variation: "The coffeehouse I work at serves as Macchiato, a layered cappuccino. 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 espresso sitting on that (not mixed), and finally 1/3 milk foam. When served in glass, it is quite elegant, and when drunk, the foam insulates the coffee for temperatures sake, the espresso hits the palate first, and finally, the slightly sweet steamed milk washes the palate. a fine beverage, though perhaps not the standard."
lets just say i like a lil foam ;-P
