The latest viral creation combines two Internet favorites: rainbow food and latte art. Mason Salisbury, a barista at Sambalatte in Las Vegas, has been posting photos and videos of his rainbow latte art on his Instagram, ibrewcoffee, since last week.
The caption on his first creation reads, “My first attempt at this and I got dye all over my hands…tomorrow I'll try some more.” Since then, Salisbury’s photos and short videos of his rainbow latte art creations have gained the attention of thousands.
The colored lattes don’t only just look pretty, but they help Salisbury train new baristas, according to Mental Floss. ‘Free pour latte art’ requires a steady hand and careful movements, and the colors help the baristas to perfect their technique.
