Café au Art
Everyone loves going to a café, ordering a latte and being presented with a lovely heart or flower etched in foam on top. Aside from looking beautiful, the latte art signifies that the milk has been properly steamed and that your drink was made with love. Some baristas go for the just the bare minimum, while others use the cup as a canvas.
My friend, New York City-based artist and barista at The Breslin, Mike Breach, has a gift for being able to do just about anything with a cup of espresso and milk.
Laura and I had the pleasure of watching him create a few different designs for us a few days ago. From animals, works of art, rock stars and presidents, Mike amazed us with each one. He even did a portrait of our dog, Iggy Pop!
How much more fun would waking up be if one of these adorned your cup every morning?
