(Scroll down for video) Would you like to drink a picture of yourself? Now you can.
A company is trying to capitalize on a popular trend, which is called selfie, in order to gain ground on its competitors.
Let’s Cafe, a chain of coffee kiosks in Taiwan, has invested in new coffee machines that allow customers to print photos of themselves on top of their lattes.
The company released a video in which it explains that this is their way to differentiate themselves from other major coffee chains.
Many YouTube users expressed enthusiasm for the idea of sipping their images.
“Amazing. A Let’s Cafe kiosk should be available in the U.S. I would love to drink my own face,” one user wrote.
“Excuse me. Anyone here know about the price of this machine?” Asked another.
Others, however, questioned its usefulness.
“Why the f*** would I want to pay more than $8 just for a cup of coffee with my own ugly face in it. Is this all that the future has to offer?”
The company said in the video that the idea has generated positive responses on social media, resulting in increased sales.
