Coffee might not only be for adults after all! Tiny tots are drinking ‘babyccinos’ which presents the question of ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ to this new coffee craze.
Would you give your little one coffee, HollyMoms? According to NY Mag babyccinos — “a drink for kids, made of either a small decaf cappuccino or just steamed milk and foam, maybe with some cinnamon sprinkled on top” — is the latest cafe trend! The drink, which typically goes for two dollars a cup, is off menu but still made in many popular Brooklyn cafes.
Babyccinos’ have been around for quite sometime, believe it or not. It started in Australia about ten years ago and has now made its way overseas to NYC. Some parents are all for it, while others refuse to allow their children to try the new treat. Dad of two Eric Worcester told The Brooklyn Paper he’s in favor of the drink: “Our children love babyccinos!” He ordered the milk-only babyccino for his kids, Evelyn, 5, and Shirley, 2. Other parents disagree with the idea, “It’s a little weird — but we make it,” says Gemma Redwood, who is a co-owner of two cafes that sell the babyccinos. But she does not allow her children to drink them.
