‘Babyccino’ Coffee for Children Fad Causes Outrage
A new baby trend which sees tots drinking “babyccino” coffee has caused shock and disbelief among those outside the hip Brooklyn fad.
New York City’s hip Brooklyn neighborhoods are playing host to one of the strangest baby fads in recent years – the “babyccino”, a coffee designed for your babies.
Brooklyn’s obsessive coffee culture has spawned “babyccinos” — frothy cups of small, foamy, surprisingly grown-up beverages for their pint-sized offspring, writes Eli Rosenberg at the Brooklyn Paper.
One parent, Eric Worcester, said:
“Our children love babyccinos!”
At $2 a serving, the coolest coffee joints are whipping this off-the-menu item to the coos of tots and proud parents alike, reports Fox News.
Katherine Haver has taken her nearly two-year-old son to cafes since he was a newborn.
“‘Coffee shop’ was one of his first words,” she said.
However, it’s unclear what effect giving young children hot, steaming milk and decaf espresso has on their health.
The off-menu drink is reportedly available at coffee shops in neighborhoods like Fort Greene and Park Slope, but not all baristas, a typically fiery and childless bunch, are going to play along, writes Joe Coscarelli at the New York Magazine.
Sean Chin of Gorilla Coffee in Park Slope, said:
“I have one customer who says that and it annoys the hell out of me.
“It is not on our menu — which we are making an effort to stick to.”
The trend started in Australia about a decade ago.
Australian coffee expert Paul Caligiore, said:
“They interrupt workflow, create milk wastage and can be served at a dangerous temperature to a vulnerable consumer.
“Babyccinos have become so popular in Australia it would be difficult to find a cafe that doesn’t have them on their menu.”
