Fancy seeing your kids, or your own face, on your coffee or hot chocolate? You can now get a selfie coffee here in Adelaide.
Coffee art has just gone to the next level. When a friend told us about this we had to go check it out for ourselves. Sure enough, you CAN get your photo on your coffee or hot chocolate.
We couldn’t believe how good they looked. These ones are hot chocolates.
This is now available at Brighton cafe Juniper & Pine. We’ve had a great breakfast here before but it was a while ago. We only had coffee, hot chocolate and cakes on this visit. The cafe is fairly spacious so we noticed it would be quite a good spot for a mother’s group catch up with babies and strollers – and in fact one of our Play & Go friends says she has met with her mother’s group there a few times.
Anyway, back to the selfie coffees.
How does it work?
Juniper & Pine have a special machine which acts like a printer, but instead of ink, it sprinkles drinking chocolate in the image of your photo, on top of your frothy milk.
When you get there they have all the info and instructions on their tables. See below.
You will need to have Facebook Messenger on your phone to be able to do this. Take your photo, or use one you’ve prepared earlier. Search for Juniper & Pine in Messenger, then send the photo to them, along with your name, table number and what coffee you would like to order (or in our case had already ordered).
TIP: Keep the background of your photo as clear as possible in order to get a good image of your face to show clearly.
A busy background will blur into the face.
While we were there we tried these cakes below. They had a special ‘coffee & cake for $8 deal’ at the time.
The cafe has a wood oven which made it nice and warm near the counter and would be great for pizzas.
Just a little note that the selfie coffee machine is apparently a little temperamental. If you are going there especially for a photo coffee/hot chocolate it might be best to check with them before visiting to make sure it’s working on that day.
