So you think you have seen it all?
How about printing and drinking your face in latte? That's exactly what you can do at the Nissan Crossing Cafe in Ginza!
Here's how it goes: First, order a printer latte. Next, give a big smile and say "coffee!" while the barista takes a photo of you on an iPad.
That's all you have to do. For the next 30 seconds, take a video with your smartphone and be amazed by the printer zapping your latte with an image of your face.
And viola! Your face as latte art. I have to admit, it feels a little weird to drink a picture of yourself but the experience was worth it! As far as the coffee goes, it is a little over-the-top foamy and is a little too weak for my taste. But hey, we are here to get our faces printed in latte art so taste isn't exactly what we are after anyway!
In addition to having your face printed in latte art, you could also bring a photo of your pet chihuahua, car, grandma or even romantic partner to print and drink. If you are feeling really cheeky, bring a photo of latte art to print on your latte.
The cafe's location itself is interesting. It sits on a slightly hidden corner of the second floor of the Nissan car showroom. Watch out for it! You might miss it if you are on your smartphone checking your Instagram newsfeed!
Again, the main attraction is this cafe is the printer latte art so don't expect a grand menu!
Overall, this is cafe makes for an interesting afternoon experience. Definitely a must-visit if you are in the Ginza area. And one more thing to note about this cafe is that it is a coffee stand, so be prepared to stand! There are limited seats available. If you manage to get a lucky seat, smile, enjoy your latte before hitting the glitzy streets of Ginza again!
