Tomas sent me this link to some really outstanding coffee art. I have to admit, some of them are really good. I’d imagine by the time they are done with some of those, the drink is cold.

    Anyhoo, Latte art is and Art that is made in the coffee’s milk. Most refer to anything that is free-poured as , well, ‘free-poured latte art’. Anything that is done with a tool is referred to as ‘etched latte art’. Anything that has been created using a powder through a template as ‘cheezey’.

  4. Oh, yeah, go [url=] here [x] to see etching done in real time. It really doesn’t take that long for someone who is good, and the coffee will still be warm. ; >

  5. Psyd,

    You’re right. Had I drawn the shapes myself, I might have got it right, but I could only use the shape in the template if I was to do it at

    Oh well. It’s the thought that counts, isn’t it? Thanks for telling me more about coffee art. I’ll also check out the video when I get a chance.
