EXO’s very own Xiumin got to experience what it’s like to be a barista through “The Celebrity” magazine. Throughout his training process, he was mentored by no other than Yoo Tae Woon, a world famous barista, and also a member of the Barista Association of Korea. Xiumin carefully selected the coffee beans himself, grinded the roasted beans for an espresso, and created “latte art” using the milk foam and the espresso. All of the staff members on the set got a taste of the delicious drinks he made.
When asked about this experience, Xiumin said that his love for coffee deepened and he now dreams of getting a barista certification and to someday open his very own small café.
This special feature of Xiumin’s barista challenge, along with the special coffee recipe he created with Yoo Tae Woon will be in the December issue of “The Celebrity”.
