Coffee Art

I have become fascinated with a thing known as Coffee Art.  This is perhaps because I have no idea how on earth you would do it, not that I drink coffee much at all (and when I do it's very weak and I cannot stand the smell of strong coffee).  I would say that if anyone's seen my mobile recently then I have a picture of coffee art currently as my wallpaper, but no-one's seen my phone recently.

What is coffee art?  Well some people (with amazing talents) have been able to draw things on coffee, like so.

 

But if you think that is impressive, you should check out some more that I've found.  Unfortunately these are all from online, and borrowed from many different places (google 'coffee art') and there are loads more out there that I haven't chosen to put on here.  Again, I cannot do this and thus it is not my work.




Finally these two are a couple of my favourites (as well as the one on my phone which is a leaf and a heart).
You can see that the one on the left is a surfer and a fish, but the one on the right is an anime character.



Impressive, non?

If you want to know how to do coffee art, there are loads of websites if you google.  One I found was Barista College which is rather impressive if you just look at the name!
Finally, thanks to all the amazing coffee art people for their work.  It really is impressive!

Some are really impressive. The flower though is not that difficult, I've already tried it on a cappuchino some time ago. It was not so neat and tidy, but after few tries, I'm sure it might look very similar, lol. (but I like coffee and prolonging the time from making one and drinking it, nooo waaai! :D)

Hahah I think I'd prefer trying to do the stuff on top, but I really don't drink coffee (and when I do, its weak instant stuff) and you probably need a strongish one to work with those and I think I'd be feeling pretty ill if I was around that.

Each to their own. I would say I'd rather try and do that, but I really don't like coffee that much so I doubt I would!

I'd have to go with tea too eventough I love coffee *pouts* My body doesn't like it at all and whenever I give in to the temptation I start shaking like I'd have the parkinson's disease D:
Not a pretty sight...

Awws. I have coffee every so often but it's always instant and I have about 5 grains of coffee in it! I cannot stand the smell of real coffee though, it makes me queasy. Certain people, including my mother, find this hilarious. The last time it happened, sunday morning in Germany, my mother asked me if I was pregnant, which Im not.

Yeah it is also called Latte Art but as it's being done on so many different types of Coffee I think they've just broadened the name. Either way, it doesn't matter. I only have about 5 grains of coffee in my coffee. Well, it's a bit more than that really but according to people, that's what it looks like, so I would assume you'd need more coffee than that for it to be worth designing something ontop. Also, I cannot stand the smell of strong coffee.


I never took you for someone to be doing this with coffee though!
