I think there are 2 schools of thought on that. Once a barista is able to pull a consistently excellent shot and steam some velvety milk it's an obligation to work on some of the other senses.

A functional but nondescript coffee is akin to Soviet architecture, methinks. I wouldn't buy a shirt just because it keeps me warm - I want more than that. I wouldn't buy a coffee just because I'm thirsty or need a hit if there is another coffee available that is presented more beautifully than the first.

I think that once a barista can consistently pull an excellent shot there is an obligation to make it more beautiful. Not just because it fills the tip jar either. We need more beauty, no?

Don't worry about latte art, coffee is for drinking not looking at. Just make it taste good.
