Selfieccino (selfie + cappuccino)

A “selfieccino” (selfie + cappuccino) is a “selfie” image made on top of a cappuccino (or other coffee). “#selfieccino” was posted on Twitter on April 7, 2014. The “selfieccino” became popular in November 2017, when Tea Terrace (a London-based chain of tea rooms) became offering it to customers.


Wikipedia: Selfie
A selfie (/sɛlfiː/) is a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a digital camera which may be held in the hand or supported by a selfie stick. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. They are for vanity usually flattering and made to appear casual. “Selfie” typically refers to self-portrait photos taken with the camera held at arm’s length or pointed at a mirror, as opposed to those taken by using a self-timer or remote.

London tea room becomes the first in UK & Europe to offer the ‘Selfieccino’ – a cappuccino with your face on it!

The Tea Terrace introduces futuristic technology that enables customers’ selfies to be printed on the froth of their cappuccinos with edible food colouring
London (November 28th, 2017): A London-based chain of tea rooms has become the first in the UK and Europe to offer what it is calling the “Selfieccino”, a cappuccino with the customer’s selfie printed on it using futuristic printing technology that scans the selfie and injects edible food colouring into the froth to print the image.

“We are proud to be introducing something quite unique to the UK market. It’s the first time people will be able to print their selfie, or any image, on their cappuccino, said Ehab Shouly, Managing Director of The Tea Terrace, which owns and operates three tea rooms at the House of Fraser department stores in London Oxford Street, London Victoria Street and Guilford.

Customers simply take a selfie and then send it via a messaging app to the barista at The Tea Terrace who will then prepare a delicious frothy cappuccino as they would normally do. The barista then puts the mug of cappuccino under the high-tech printer which then prints the selfie on to the froth in less than 30 seconds.

30 November 2017, The Times (London, UK), “Self-serving froth” by Alistair Osborne, pg. 37:
More proof of our meteoric evolutionary progress: “The Tea Terrace introduces futuristic technology that enables customers’ selfies to be printed on the froth of their capuccinos with edible food colouring.” Yes, the “selfieccino” has arrived. Still, not ideal for your Snapchat selfies.
