Coffee art photos that bring out the beauty of our addiction.
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.
