How to Make Photographic Frappes with MOCAFE™

By: Alyssa Deguzman

Social media has a substantial influence on what’s popular and what’s not. Food and beverages are no exception to that. For instance, whenever someone discovers a new Frappuccino flavor combination, people rush to their nearest Starbucks to try it. Then, they share it to their feeds and the trend begins. This can create a hassle for baristas, and it’s not always guaranteed to be as good as it looks.

Instead of going out of your way to try these trendy fraps, make your own at home. Not only can you customize it to your taste, but you don’t have to leave your house and you’ll save money. Plus, creating photographic frappes isn’t as challenging as it seems. It’s all about decorating and layering everything together and MOCAFE™ has the most premium bases to use.
