But first, let me take a selfieccino.
You. Are. Welcome.
Spot the selfie!!!
Taking a step beyond good ol’ latte art, the personalised capuccinos are the hottest cuppa on the trendy shopping mile this week. After launching on Saturday, over 400 people have sipped a coffee with their face on it, and to be completely honest, we totally get the hype.
Perfect for any die-hard caffeine and selfie addict, the selfieccinos are created using a Cino machine. You simply submit a photo of yourself, and the machine scans the image before printing it onto coffee froth using flavourless food colouring. The whole thing takes about four minutes, and the results are pretty impressive. (For non-coffee drinkers, there’s also a hot choc version).

Introducing the 'Selfieccino' ….. we are proud to be the first restaurant in the United Kingdom and the whole of Europe to introduce the Selfie/Cappuccino combo. Simply take a seflie, send it to our staff at The Tea Terrace Restaurant and Tea Room at the House of Fraser in London on Oxford Street, and they will make you a delicious Selfieccino which you can show off to all your friends on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. We have introduced new technology which allows us to print your selfie or any image or any message on the froth of your cappuccino. Don't you think it looks amazing?! The Selfieccino only costs £5.75 and is only available at our London Oxford Street branch from December 4th onwards.
For all those times you vainly wanted to stare into your own eyes over coffee, or all those times you ran out of ways to confuse your barista with extra caramel/cinnamon/soy, the selfieccino is your saviour. And it’s super Instagrammable too.
Owner of The Tea Terrace Ehab Salem Shouly agrees, and states, “Due to social media, the dining experience has completely shifted. It’s not enough any more to just deliver great food and great service – it’s got to be Instagram worthy.”
