FORT COLLINS, Colo., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- A Colorado coffee shop's youngest barista might only be 3 years old, but his cappuccino is just as good as anyone else's -- at least, according to his mom.

Andrew and Jenn Webb, owners of Bindle Coffee in Fort Collins, said their 3-year-old son, Adler, started taking an interest in his father's coffee-making procedure during the summer and soon discovered he had a knack for serving hot beverages.

A video posted to YouTube by regular customer Benjamin Dinsmore shows the toddler making cappuccino under the watchful eyes of his father, who offers help with some of the more difficult steps.

"I'm strong like the Hulk!" Adler says after successfully pulling a lever in the video.

"He just wants to experience what I'm doing," Andrew Webb told The Rocky Mountain Collegian. "And at the same time, he can steam milk really well."

Jenn Webb said she would pit her son's skills against those of any barista.

"I can actually say I can't tell the difference between his and someone else's," she told WTXF-TV.
