What I’ve learnt in 2012 #5: Babycinos

January 6, 2012 by jessperriam

As a villager in the life of a child (if we’re taking the whole ‘village to raise a child’ thing seriously), there comes a crucial question.

When is the right time to introduce a little person to the world of babycinos? We all know babycinos are the gateway to hot chocolates, which are the gateway to mochas, which are the gateway to cappuccinos and eventually a full blown coffee addiction.

I would heartily suggest the worst time to introduce them to babycinos is while they’re still a baby. If you’ve not mastered a cup, no ‘cino for you.

I would go even further to say toddlers aren’t quite there yet. Case in point – I had a marvellous time with my youngest niece and a babycino this morning. It was a real… tactile experience for her:

Delicious nonetheless

I’m not sure what the best age for babycinos really are. Late toddledom, I’d suspect. Ah! Who cares? Milk froth is fun, whichever way you have it.

    The photo doesn’t quite do the experience justice but she did enjoy herself.
