Latte Art Is No Ordinary Joe

What do you think of these? Do you Latte at the local trendy coffee shop or are you talented enough to make something similar at home? I don't do either, but I thought the videos were really interesting. There's lots more on YouTube if you are interested, but I do think I grabbed the best ones. Sammy Lin works in New York City and is a World Champion in latte art. Yes, there's competitions!

Let me know what you think.


  1. Latte Art is a real competition? What will they think off next? I love the designs - they looked so airbrushed!

  2. Yes, they really do have competitions with participants from all over the world.

  3. How incredibly creative to take the mundane and make it beautiful.
    There is a verse in Ecclesiastes that says "He has made everything beautiful in its time" and another that says something like " He has placed eternity in men's heats. That sort of creativity does not evolve it has to come from a creative source...wonder if they ever wonder, especially the first guy, where all that creativity comes from. I love the cats near the end.

  4. Hello Joy.
    Thank for your so lovely comments. The cake is very good, and de cinnamon is also very popular in Spain. Thank you also for your congratulations.

  5. I don't go to Starbucks or any place like that. I don't make it at home either.But...I do enjoy a nice 32 ounch McDonalds vanilla iced coffe for $2.12. Better than Starbucks any day.
