From Espresso Photography Championships to Cappuccino Stencils

 - Dec 30, 2012
Imagine your surprise when you peer down into your frothy beverage to see a intriguing latte art smiling back at you.

To make these crafty beverage designs, one must either have a special coffee printer, a stencil or the expert hand of a trained and highly skilled barista. It's an artistry that requires pouring skimmed milk into an espresso shot using the utmost precision. One could also try their hand at drawing designs in the caffeinated foam.

Some of the best latte art depict iconic pop culture personnel such as PSY, known for his galloping Gangnam Style dance. Others like to incorporate cute anime characters like Pikachu and Kiki. Once you're done admiring the espresso canvas, gleefully gulp it down.
