The Kid Should See This

The Fine Art of Coffee Portraiture

Watch more with these video collections:

Meet Mike Breach, barista extraordinaire, who “paints” everything — and everyone — into his lattes. “I’m an esspressionist,” he proudly proclaims. Just last year, Breach was idling away his customer-less hours in the back of a hotel kitchen with only a dormant espresso machine for company. He was “so, so bored.” So he taught himself how to inscribe ornate hearts in coffee foam, with a bamboo skewer as his paintbrush.

From Tumblr’s Storyboard blog, watch The Fine Art of Portraiture… in coffee. Then check out baristart.tumblr.com for more portraitsanimals, and lovable extra terrestrials. (E.T. foam home.)
