Too beautiful to drink? South Korean barista Lee Kang-bin is taking coffee art to the next level by pioneering in “CreamArt“. Using food coloring, he draws intricate designs on the layer of steamed milk that sits atop a coffee and has even created miniature imitations of famous paintings including “The Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh’s and “The Scream” by Edvard Munch.
If you are planning a trip to Seoul, Korea, definitely make a stop at his “Café C. Through” to have the most artistic coffee ever. It takes him arund 15 minutes to make one cup and it is worth around 10,000 won, equivalent to around $9 dollars.
What is even better is that he may even create a cream art that you request! So print a copy of your favourite painting or drawing, and bring it along with you.
