WASHINGTON, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Early next year those lovers of latte needn't stop in a café for their kick, but can press a button on a can of the stuff for a fast fix.

Beginning Jan. 2, WP Beverage Partners will start selling a 10-ounce container of gourmet latte bearing the name of celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck that can be heated with the touch of a button, the Gannett News Service reported Tuesday.

The button mixes calcium oxide and water to heat the latte to 145 degrees Fahrenheit in six minutes and keep it warm for 30 minutes.

As well as licensing the use of Puck's name WP has linked up with OnTech, a technology specialist, that designed the heating process.
