15 photos of insanely impressive latte art
Coffee latte art

Trained baristas make latte art look easy, but it’s actually incredibly difficult for mere mortals like you and me to create those stunning swirls and hearts on top of a cup of coffee.

That being said, some especially artistic baristas take things to the next level and can produce everything from detailed portraits to 3D animals floating in your morning latte. Check out our gallery of unreal coffee art from around the world that has to be seen to be believed.
