The average coffee cup illustrations you probably see on a daily basis is the smiley faces that baristas sometimes put next to their customers' names on the cups with a marker. However, the same can't be said about those who stop by the coffee shop that barista Gabriel Lafitte Nkweti is located at. Nkweti creatively draws the names of all his customers over the entire coffee cup canvas.

The creative coffee brewer and artist is based out of a Starbucks in London, England, and he definitely goes beyond employee guidelines and customer service standards with his designs. Each cup is intricately designed and can take up a lot of time. According to Nkweti, some of his cups take up to 40 hours to complete.
