|For some reason, miniature size just gets me well.
Notice there is a loop attached to the cap, which allows the user to attach it to a lanyard,
or a trinket.
One unique feature of Latte is that half of it is covered by rubber grip that ease the discomfort of prolonged usage. In this sense, one does not need to adjust pen holding posture when using the pen, since there is plenty of space that is covered by the grip.
|All grip covered!|
Another merit of this pen is that it is made with recycled materials (about 73%), which made up to the shortcoming of being non-refillable. In fact, this is probably one of the few pens that you cannot take it apart. I try to unscrew the grip (believe me, I have tried), and the pen is essentially one piece that cannot be taken apart.
Latte’s ink consistency is similar to Sakura Soufflé, pastel milky ink. It can be used on darker colored paper, as well as regular paper. The difference is that the ink definitely “pops” more on darker paper. As you can see in the picture immediately below, it writes “above” regular ink because of its ink consistency, ideal to cross off a to-do list!
When use on regular paper you can feel the texture of the lettering after the ink dries. Compare to regular gel ink that “sinks” into paper, Latte’s floats.
|You see some parts of the letters are more transparent? That is the wet part.|
Though Soufflé dries slower, the ink consistency seems to be thicker and more saturated in hue. It also has more of a 3D look than Latte.
Besides paper, Latte can be used on other surface, such as metal, plastic, and glass. After the ink is dried, the ink does stay on quite well, unless you vigorously scratch the lettering.
