Latte art test: n. The study of customer photographs on social networks to establish whether a cafe has consistently good latte art. Often associated with excellent coffee drinking.
Q: Why "Cromulent Coffee"?
A: Dilbert can answer that.
Q: Are you really claiming that coffee only tastes good if it looks good?
A: Not at all; but masterful hand-poured latte art is a sign of a barista who knows what they're doing.
Q: Why doesn't the "Near Me" map point do anything?
A: You need to ensure your browser can use your location, and that it's enabled for cromulentcoffee.com. Don't worry -- it's only used locally and we never save it or report it up to the internet.
Q: But I live in Italy / Sydney / Melbourne and can get good coffee anywhere. Why do I need this?
A: You don't.
Q: Is there such a thing as a dry cappuccino?
Q: How do I find the latest cromulent coffee / suggest somewhere else?
A: Hit up @cromulentcofee on Instagram or twitter. Starbucks need not apply.
