Society Hits A New Low: The 'Selfieccino'

Here's what's involved - you take a headshot of yourself, you send it to the cafe using an app, your image is uploaded into a machine, your image shows up in the froth of your cappuccino, and then you drink yourself. The owner of The Tea Terrace tells Reuters everything these days has to be Instagram worthy. Does it? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
