Westworld – Winter 2015

Coffee shop(ping)

There’s more to modern coffee than just the caffeine kick. Inside Calgary’s ARCHEloft makerspace (formally Endeavor Arts & Event Space), the first wearable-technology fashion lab in Canada, Elle Nguyen and Allison East elevate coffee by marrying the science of espresso with the aesthetic pleasures of visual art. Their pop up cafĂ©, Latte Art Love, creates dreamy, drinkable designs that spark conversations and creativity, using both classical latte art techniques and Ghirardelli chocolate syrup sketching. Visitors can peek in on makerspace projects, explore workshop options, view the on-site gallery and shop with products from 3D printing and beyond – or, shop the holiday market here December 4 and 5. latteartlove.com – R.S.
