Yuuichi Ito, a barista who works at Belcorno, an Italian restaurant in Ichinomiya City, Japan, has taken latte art to the next level with his visually striking creations. Instead of working solely with the coloring of the coffee and foam itself, Yuuichi Ito injects some much needed color to really bring the images to life. Considering that he recreates scenes and characters from Disney movies, anime cartoon shows, comic strips and more, it is only natural that he would do so.

The renditions Yuuichi Ito makes are pretty spot on as well. Although it is unclear what tools he uses to create these images, what is clear is that many people will probably let their coffees get cold before taking a sip. Yuuichi Ito is so talented, people will buy lattes just to see what he comes up with.
