A Merton barista has been given the title of best cappuccino after triumphing at a national award ceremony.

Antonio Petrosino has owned Cafe2U Merton - a mobile espresso franchise - since May 2011, visiting his customers at business parks and offices.

He was awarded best cappucino at the national Beverage Standards Awards 2012 which tested the vending skills of hundreds of travelling baristas. 

Mr Petrosino said it was one of the biggest achievements of his life and that he felt very priviledged.
