Creative Coffee Art Designs

Updated on October 2, 2014

Warning: This will not only inspire you to want to create coffee art & latte art but also to drink it...actually, it's too pretty to drink isn't it?

If you thought just making a delicious cup of coffee was an art, then take a look at what these coffee artists and baristas have done to take that to the next level.

Baristas are experts in the art of coffee making and coffee art is a skill that can take years to master. It's no surprise that in the US, latte art was developed in Seattle in the 1980's and 1990's. Latte art refers to the pattern or design on the surface of a cappucino or latte created by pouring steamed milk into a shot of espresso. Most artists agree that it all starts with a good pour and that it's very difficult to recreate your art consistently.

Someone posted this picture on Facebook and I was so impressed I went looking for more and now I've put together this hub to share the fun.
