Art In A Cup: Coffee at Hotel Celeste

More than just a cup of coffee, leave it to master barista Angelo Abordo to create an inspired cup of latte that's a feast for the eyes. 

A multi-awarded master barista, Angelo Abordo creates his masterpieces daily at The Coffee Shop of Hotel Celeste. Leave it to Angelo, or Gelo, to create something special for a unique coffee experience at Hotel Celeste.

Master Barista and latte artist Angelo Abordo prepares another masterpiece in a cup. Without sticks, master barista Angelo performs a delicate choreography of pouring steamed milk to create stunning patterns in each cup. 

The delicate patterns are created by pouring steamed milk, and nothing else. The swirling black and white pattern holds, freezing the the image, and the moment.

A deceptively simple technique, yet the patterns created by alternating the pouring motion of steamed milk can create graphic images of a ballerina...

...or even an elegant swan.

The swirling pattern combines with the rich flavor and aroma of a freshly brewed latte, a feast for the senses. Have a cup to start your day, or after a meal at Lucia Ristorante (see my previous post on Lucia Ristorante at Hotel Celeste here at 

More than a cup of coffee, leave it to Gelo to create a special brew just for you.
