Real Coffee Art

Kazuki Yamamoto is a Japanese barista who constructs eye-popping works of 3D art using just foam and coffee. Within the six years Yamamoto has been working at a coffee shop in Osaka, he's racked up more than 100,000 Twitter followers obsessed with his latte art.

Yamamoto says he uses two very common objects -- a spoon and a toothpick -- to create all of his art. He pours the foam in first, then uses the toothpick to paint with espresso and the spoon to create shapes.

Yamamoto must work quickly to satisfy customers' desires for a fresh cup of Joe. He claims he completes each work of art in under four minutes, so the coffee is still hot when he serves it.

Some of his creations even climb out of their cups and reach out to others ( I'm afraid those fish are not long for this world…)

What better way to show off your over-the-top creativity than crafting a sculpture of the most vertical of creatures, the giraffe? I would have major guilt destroying this work of art in order to get my caffeine fix.

Yamamoto's Dedication to his Craft is Inspiring.  His intricate and beautiful works of art remind us to find playful moments even in the most mundane of situations. They are truly joy in a cup.

Such awesome work!
