Northern Lights in Scranton.

On my first day back at Scranton after Fall Break, I stopped at Northern Lights. A hip coffee shop down town Scranton. A lot of students walk there to grab a hot cup of coffee and a pastry.

Latte Art is created by pouring steamed milk into a espresso shot to create a design into a cup of coffee. A coffee blog called SeedsCoffee, says that latte art was developed in the 1980s by a man named David Schomer. Now there are latte art competitions around the world and just local artists in your coffee shops who do it for fun.

I am obsessed with coffee art! Here is a YouTube video of it in action. Here from Wiki – 3 Ways to Make Latte Art shows some simple, easy steps on how to make art out of your coffee. It seems simple but you have to have a crafty eye and it takes practice.
