So, we can add the Best Latte Art you ever saw to the list of things I never knew existed. All this time, I have only been using the foam to form hilarious mustaches on my upper lip when I could have been creating these masterpieces:
The Elephant Latte
This is one of my favorite Latte Art. It is quite simply a stunning image of an elephant. I don’t think I could ever bring myself to drink such an intricate and beautiful piece of art. Well, that is, unless I was really thirsty.
The Melting Clock Art
This next cup of Latte exemplifies the style known as 3D Latte Art. We have Dali’s famous melting clock in a cup. And, it's literally melting. Actually, I wonder how long this sort of work of art would last before really melting. In the place I go for my drinks, the staff is so slow that the foam or cream (or whatever is on top of my drink) usually melts before it arrives. Thinking about it now, they probably just skim off it the top foam and slurp it down all because they hate me.
The Wolf Latte
Am I the only person to feel a little creeped out by this piece of coffee art? I would probably freak and run out of the place screaming if my waiter served me a cup with that face in it.
The Dali Latte
If you’re going to put someone’s face in your Latte Art, it might as well be Dali…I guess.
The Hello Kitty Art
That creepy little cat pops up everywhere these days. It's even in our drinks. My daughter is a big fan of Hello Kitty but hates latte. On the other hand, I could live solely off lattes and biscotti. I could do without Hello Kitty.
The Sorry Latte
The idea of saying sorry with a latte is pretty clever. If your actions were really bad, then you might want to buy your partner something a bit more impressive. Perhaps something like flowers or some cookies. Unless you’re not really that sorry after all. In which case, I would suggest waiting until your local coffee store has a 2 for 1 offer and ordering the smallest size they have.
The Planetary Latte
I really like this one even though it's pretty simple. In fact, I’m not even sure it’s a latte to start with.
The Snoopy Latte
This is snoopy, isn't it? It’s been a while since I’ve seen the old fellow. But, I'm sure that's him just floating on top of a latte.
The Mushroom Cloud Latte
This is pretty good looking pattern, but what is it? I think it’s a mushroom cloud, like the explosion from a nuclear bomb.
The Snowman Latte Art
For a cheerful cup of latte during the winter, you can’t beat this chipper little snowman.
The Cat and Fish Latte
This is the final piece of Latte Art for today. It is probably my favourite. The 3D foam cat looks hungrily on at a couple of swimming fish. It’s cute, it’s artistic and it’s making me thirsty.
