Having a cup of latte with a quirky pattern on top of it; this is nothing new today. Coffee craft is rapidly evolving to new heights and baristas all over the world have been mastering their skills to show off their talents in creating latte art. We’re sure most of you are familiar with 2D coffee art and it’s by all means very impressive.
However, some Japanese artists have gone one step further and created three-dimensional foam drawings. Using coffee, milk foam and a hell of a lot of patience, these artists have crafted everything from 3D cats, anime characters and zoo animals. Some of them have even combined two or more cups to create an even more impressive piece of 3D coffee art.
