When it comes to coffee art, most people think of latte art. Latte art is created by the barista in your coffee shop, or by you at home – painting designs on coffee with frothed milk.

On this page I want to look a little beyond that. Yes, I have included some examples of latte art. But I have also included photos that explore other ways of viewing coffee as art.

You’ll see what I mean as you scroll down the page.

Latte and espressoA study in contrasts. Latte with art on the left and the simplicity of a shot of espresso on the right.
Painting with coffee.A whole different side to art and coffee, where you actually paint with a brush dipped in black coffee. I love it!
Coffee art with dragon.Not so much latte art, as painting with what looks like powdered cocoa. That dragon looks too good to drink!

Latte art on wood.The latte art is not the most sophisticated, but I do like the composition of the photo. Not so much latte art as latte within art.
Two lattes on table.Two lattes touching. Two coffee lovers, side by side, enjoying a shared moment.
Smiley face on coffee.Not a very fancy example of coffee art. But I like the smile!
