How to make the perfect latte
Here's a video I shot and edited of Tony Tausch, owner of the Coffee Emporium, showing how to make the perfect latte at the Emporium's Central Parkway location. Polly Campbell wrote a story along the same lines for Wednesday's paper (I'll post that link here once it's up). Tony is basically a walking coffee encyclopedia, and the downtown Coffee Emporium is just the coolest place. There are big sacks of coffee beans on shelves in one corner, you can peek into the room where the coffee roaster is, and there's always an interesting mix of people hanging out there -- business people, hipster types working on laptops, etc. Sadly, I didn't have time to sample one of this beautiful lattes he made when I shot this, but I'll definitely go back.
