Best barista in SF?

nooodles | Apr 20, 200501:55 PM

Apt baristas are aplenty in SF, but I'm seeking the kind of barista who will draw shapes in your cappuccino with foamed milk--hearts, florets, elephants, rabbits, etc.

Does anyone know any cafes in SF where I can find such eye candy? A friend said a woman at Farley's in Potrero Hill used to do it, ages ago. She's no longer there. Or is it a skill that most baristas have but don't bother with unless a customer asks?

Of course, presentation is moot unless the coffee is good as well.
