I've got a secret...I don't drink coffee. This meant I had to do some research into the huge variety of coffee drinks available.

She shut off the steam and wiped down the wand. She softly shook the pitcher to mix the milky froth and began pouring it into the espresso. She did her best to jiggle the thick froth into a heart shape as she reached the top of the cup. She presented the warm cup to Hayley.
