Are you desperate to be a trendsetter?

The Week recently published an article about how hipster parents in Brooklyn are now ordering their tots “babycinnos,”  $2 drinks which are typically offered in two varieties. Little kiddos can sip on either a tiny cup of decaf cappuccino (a shot of decaffeinated espresso topped with steamed milk) or a non-coffee “coffee” consisting of nothing but frothy steamed milk and foam.

Is it a good idea? Paula Forbes at Eater thinks not, and is fully convinced that babyccinos are sure to prove a gateway vice. “First it’s decaf espresso, then it’s the real stuff, next thing you know your kid’s chain-smoking Gauloises.”
