Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday, friends!

I don't know about you, but if there's one thing I absolutely need in order to start each day, it's coffee. I love the taste (and that great smell!), and I definitely need the caffeine boost after the four or five hours of sleep I get each night. The coffee I drink isn't fancy—I usually just brew it in my kitchen—but over the years, I've seen some amazing coffee art created by very talented coffee artists like the ones featured in these two videos.

The first video presents the latte art of Chris Phillips. You can find out a bit more about him at his Web site. And in the second video, you can see some absolutely unbelievable 3-D coffee art created by Japanese cappuccino painter Kazuki Yamamoto, who piles up foam to make gravity-defying designs. You can read more about him here.  Enjoy!







Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺

  1. How clever. Hubby is the coffee drinker in our house but he drinks it black whereas I am the tea drinker and only drink coffee at the weekends.

  2. As a caffee addict and worshipper too I'm absolutely fascinated and amazed by the videos. I love art on coffee, so I really enjoyed the videos. Tea isn't bad, either, but still, it's just not coffee - that's the right way to start a great day!

    Have a great Sunday, Dana!

  5. Cool! I have never been a coffee drinker - Can you believe that? I don't like the taste of it , although I wish I did like it. I could sure use the caffeine punch! I do drink tea but mostly when I am trying to get warm :)

  10. Coffee-love the smell but can't drink the stuff....ghak! I just have a big glass of milk to start my day...and chocolate if I need the caffeine.

    In New Zealand they make a silverback leaf in your coffee...looks very cool.

    Happy Sunday!

  12. I'm a big fan of the smell of coffee, and I don't mind making it for my wife, but I've never developed a taste for it. Chai tea on the other hand...I just might be addicted.

    1. Chai tea is delicious! I'd forgotten all about it. :)

  13. Okay Dana, this is just amazing, I didn't even knew that cappuccino paintings exist as a speciality, Kazuki Yamamoto creations are wonderful but some reason the live proposal of Chris Philips touches me more. Mozart music maybe ? Smiles !

    Thank you so much for this share and all my best for your week !

  14. I loooooooooooove the smell of coffee but I don't like the way it tastes. My brain is always confused because it smells amazing but it doesn't taste the same to me. haha But either way, you can't deny how awesome coffee art is.

    1. I've heard many people say that: they love the smell but not the taste. :)

      Yes, coffee art is definitely amazing! I admire all these creative people so much.

  15. How cool! I consider my coffee making to be an art. No big deal, but my coffee is kind of heavenly :D

    Hope you had a great weekend!

    1. I'd love to know what you do. I'm hit-or-miss as far as making coffee goes. Today's pot is just okay...

      My weekend was really nice, thanks. I hope yours was, too!

  16. If coffee is your thing, I wrote about it in my poetry blog (Life in the Urban Forest).

    The art is fascinating; the coffee, probably not as much.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!
