A cafe in London lets customers drink their own faces, by sending a machine your picture, Reuters reports. The image shows up in the froth of your cappuccino.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene, wondering what happened to just grabbing a cup of coffee. The Tea Terrace, a cafe in London, has introduced 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.
