Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Tea & Toast Co. at DeSoto Central Market in downtown Phoenix doesn't take the term "latte art" lightly. The baristas at this coffee and tea counter create Instagram-worthy images out of nothing but milk foam atop customers' drinks — and we're not just talking about flowers. We've spotted everything from pineapples to pandas on the top of Tea & Toast Co.'s drinks. 

So how do they do it? Check out this video interview with Tea & Toast Co. partner Allison DeVane for some of answers. 

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
