It’s probably fair to say that coffee is the drink of choice of many web designers. So I thought it would be fun to showcase some awesome examples of coffee/latte art. If you’ve never seen this done before, it’s created by pouring steamed milk into espresso and then swirling or drawing in the top surface. Here are 30 examples of this that look so amazing that you would hate to drink it and mess up the design.

    You’d think the coffee would be cold by the time they’d finished making it look that good!!

    Didn’t even know this sort of thing existed! I suppose the only problem is, by the time you’ve finished admiring them, your coffee may well have gone cold!
