I’m getting moderately obsessed with latte art: watching it emerge from a pitcher of slowly poured milk, admiring the presentation, gasping in delight and wonder at the finished objet, and – more than anything – feeling a spark of hope for this old world.
Because, it seems, our coffee shops abound with talented baristas for whom the not-so-simple act of pouring a cup of coffee has become one part performance art, one part art form.
Does anything cap the wonder of a slow-motion action video of latte art in the making?
Here you go, then:
Watch, wonder, then go away and practice!
p.s. There’s a lesson in here somewhere, for anyone who thinks their day job is without creative scope or a personal challenge.
