Coffee Anyone?

Some People Should Never, Ever Quit Their Day Jobs

Kazuki Yamamoto is a Japanese barista who constructs eye-popping works of 3D art using just foam and coffee.


Try Asking for One of These at Starbucks

Within the six years Yamamoto has been working at a coffee shop in Osaka, he’s racked up more than 100,000 Twitter followers obsessed with his latte art.


He’s like Picasso on Speed

Yamamoto must work quickly to satisfy customers’ desires for a fresh cup of Joe. He claims he completes each work of art in under four minutes, so the coffee is still hot when he serves it.


Sometimes One Cup Is Not Enough

Some of his creations even climb out of their cups and reach out to others ( I’m afraid those fish are not long for this world…)


Fans Say He’s Also a Real Nice Guy

In the past, he’s created latte portraits of his Twitter followers. This is Twitter fan Peter Harrison, before his latte transformation.ATT00005565655

And Here He is After:

(According to Mr. Harrison, the gift was a complete surprise.)


He Uses Just a Spoon and Toothpick

Yamamoto says he uses two very common objects — a spoon and a toothpick — to create all of his art. He pours the foam in first, then uses the toothpick to paint with espresso and the spoon to create shapes.


Come On In!

The water’s…well, the water’s actually coffee. But it sure is nice and toasty in here.


This is why the Japanese love the metaphor of cherry blossoms. “Because cherry trees blossom for only a week or two every year, when they do blossom, there is the emotional poignancy of knowing that it is only a temporary state of affairs,” writes Koren.


Speaking of Impermanence…

You could read this as a sad statement about the plight of the polar bear or you could gape in awe at Yamamoto’s magnificent attention to detail.ATT00011111211121111

Then There’s This Amazing Giraffe

What better way to show off your over-the-top creativity than crafting a sculpture of the most vertical of creatures, the giraffe? I would have major guilt destroying this work of art in order to get my caffeine fix.

    Amazing, fun, mind blogging talent. To create such incredible art only to have it dissolve within minutes really brings home the point that it’s all about the journey, not the destination (end goal). Some of us never get “there.” Wishing all my terrific cyber family a smile today.


  6. Saw this at Amelia Cruzon’s reblog. I just love it. Also reblogged it. Thank you! Paulette
