chocolate 'art' that Barista was known for. "The machine does it," True?? Really..

A machine can do latte art? any ideas which machines?

Read this in a cafe review here:

http://www.blogto.com/restaurants/panino-co-toronto

"offee is in Rutigliano's genes--his family has been in the espresso bar business since the '50s--so I opt for a cappuccino ($2.75) to go. The shot is a bit subsumed in the milk and foam, but comes topped with the same chocolate 'art' that Barista was known for. "The machine does it," Rutigliano says, smiling, when he sees my eyes light up, but machine or no, I remain impressed by the intricate lines and light cocoa flavour throughout the drink. Soft drinks such as sodas and juice are also available for $2."

I think you're right - in fact, a simple single-heart stencil used twice.  The give-away is the gap in the right side (of each instance) where the stencil center is attached to the outer frame.

Looking under the design, it's clear that the coarse texture and bubbles in this cup preclude any hope of free-pouring anything but a dry-ish white blob.  Cocoa or grated chocolate will be able to sit on that stuff for hours without breaking down.
