Brisbane barista makes coffee even better with rainbow latte art

What was once a quiet Brisbane cafe, is now an internet sensation thanks to a unique menu item.

Emily Coumbis, a 25-year-old barista at Piggy Back Cafe in the Brisbane suburb of Jindalee, is behind the cafe’s visually stunning rainbow lattes.

She first saw the technique online, which involves dropping regular blue, pink, and yellow food dye into the milk, and decided to try it out herself.

Now, she has customers coming from as far as Singapore to try her creations – making up to 300 cups a week.

The Piggy Back Cafe is sharing its success with those in need too; donating $1 from each coffee sold to not-for-profit organisation The Mind Shift Foundation.

If you can’t get to Brisbane to try one, you can still watch the drink being made below. It’s absolutely mesmerising.
