BALTIMORE (WJZ)—If you love coffee you know there are many different ways to enjoy it.  At one Baltimore restaurant they’ve taken it to another level.

Ron Matz has more on coffee as an art form.

Lindsay Difabbio knows her espresso. She’s in charge of the coffee program at Johnny’s Restaurant in Roland Park.

“I was going to school studying business management, and then before I knew it I was just making coffee every day,” Difabbio said.

And she’s made latte art her specialty. From the Rosetta to the swan and a perfect tulip, it’s all in the wrists.

“The slightest little twist of your hand, manipulates the way the milk flows into your coffee, and you can work from there to get some really wacky designs,” she said.

We asked for a Baltimore Raven, and presto. This is more than just art.

“In addition to looking very nice, it actually tastes good,” Difabbio said.

Difabbio makes dozens of espresso drinks every day at Johnny’s, and she even takes requests.

“Sometimes people will come in and say ‘I saw a picture on the Internet of’ whatever, and sometimes they’ll show me a picture, or sometimes they’ll just tell me about it, and I’ll try to learn how to do that. That’s a lot of fun. It’s a good challenge,” Difabbio said.

The talented artist is pouring perfection every day.

Difabbio attended Carroll Community College. She’s been in charge of the coffee program at Johnny’s since the Roland Park restaurant opened nearly a year ago.
