Talented barista sketches customer caricatures on cups

A talented artist who is also a barista at the Starbucks at Eglinton Ave. and Warden Ave. is in the charming habit of zipping off caricatures of his customers on the side of their cups. Jason Tocewicz has recently been profiled by the CBC but even before that, his added-value service had made him quite popular. “I try to sneak it in there. I try to make it inconspicuous but it’s kind of become more popular so a lot of people ask for it or are expecting it,” he told Ramna Shahzad.

    Cool characters on hot coffee cups
    Yours in the morn if your luck’s to wake up.

    They’re much in demand as folks thirst for more
    A moment of fame that flies out the door.

    With marker and smile, he’ll twiddle and hasten
    to serve you your brew. He’s amazin’ Jason.
