A young couple who found love after a distraught barista asked a customer out with a latte foam feature on the UK’s most popular TikToks of the Year list.

Sophie Hosking had been serving the ‘cute’ Mexican customer at the Edinburgh Grams cafe for around a year before taking the plunge, writing him a message alongside her usual order.

It was the latest in a series of fun drawings she had been working on for several months, steadily working up the courage to write the calligraphy “ur cute” (with a love heart) on May 23.

“Fortunately for me, he drinks milk latte, which is the easiest type of coffee to make latte art,” she told Sky News.

“However, the real coffee in the video was definitely an impulsive decision.

“The work was quite quiet that day, so I had time to make it perfect!”

He agreed to go on TikTok, and seven months and 60.2 million views later the relationship is growing stronger – the couple have been to the World Cup, Sophie has met Marco’s family and is learning Spanish .

“I hope anyone watching TikTok can see that with a little bit of confidence, amazing things can happen,” she said.

The only downside is that the relationship survived Grams himself, as the Cost of life the crisis forces it to close its doors permanently later this month.
