There are days when only a hot cup of joe would do the trick for you. Sluggish and sleepy, you walk to your nearest coffee shop and order a simple latte to help perk you up.
Only, it’s not as simple as you think.
Andrew Alcala is a barista at the Coffee Commissary in Burbank. And lattes are his specialty. But these lattes are not just any kind. Andrew turns one simple cup into art. The Champion Latte Artist does just about any kind of art in a cup of latte with the use of milk foam. Check out his wonderful creations below.
- A Tulip
No need to go to Holland to catch these beauty, it’s right there in your cup!
- A Flower
If tulips are not your style, you can probably request for a different kind of flower like this one to brighten your day.
- An Intricate Pattern
For architects, engineers and other people looking for inspiration, just look at your cup and your creative juices would start to flow.
- A Bear
Seems like Goldilocks is missing one of her bears and lost it in a cup of latte.
- A Scorpion
This isn’t exactly appetizing but you got to admire the detail of the scorpion’s body.
- A Dragon
Daenarys might be going crazy looking for her long-lost dragon and Andrew just hid it in this cup.
- A Swan
This used to be an ugly duckling that decided to take a swim in a cup of coffee. Now it has turned into a beautiful swan.
- “Mother’s Day” Cup
Surprise your mom with her favorite cup of coffee on Mother’s Day. And perhaps in any other day. She’ll thank you for it.
- “Thanks For The Tip”
A show of gratitude for the patrons who leave tips for their favorite baristas.
10. A Snowflake
Perfect for a cold Christmas Day.
11. Skull And Bones
Don’t be scared, it’s not poison. Andrew’s just probably honoring ‘tha thug life.’
Take your favorite childhood video game with you with this Pac-Man cup of latte.
