But once the art of manipulating the cream and/or foam on top of the coffee to create art started, people took it up with a lot of enthusiasm. Today one can not only see the basic hearts and flower drawn on top of the coffee foam, but there are some examples like creating a foam bear perched on top of the coffee foam. Such art is mostly created with the intention of delighting the little child that lives in all grown up people.
When you consider the motivation behind this art, it does seem like something almost noble to do. More so when you consider that the childish delight that one derives from looking at such art is also something that the artist himself of herself also derives in plenty.
Having said all that, one cannot take this art form lightly. It does take an amazing amount of dexterity, imagination and a lot of delicate handling to create this art form. Considering that coffee as a drink that perks our mornings, it seems to follow that the coffee art works on perking up our moods. So look at these examples of lovely and creative coffee arts and smile in delight.
