The Incredible Creations of Thai Coffee Artists

Thailand is full of coffee artists. Wherever you go for a cup of Joe, they try to outdo their coffee competitors with creative patterns and swirls of blended foam.

I hate to even stir in a spoonful of sugar for fear of ruining the coffee canvas. But since the coffee won’t stay hot forever, I choose to capture each creation digitally.

    They were simply amazing and I would have a hard time drinking the coffee in order to ruin the art.

    Those are amazing! If I ever get to visit my compassion child in Thailand I will have to ask for coffee just to see the patterns.

    I am impressed! I have worked as a barista but never honed my skills to create what you were served! I enjoyed seeing all these photos but especially the cat 🙂
