The Latte Portrait Artist

Baristart (Mike Breach)

We've mentioned latte art before, but here's a new twist: Mike Breach is a barista who "paints" faces (among other impressively complex designs) into the foam of the lattes he makes. He says "coffee is my medium," and has a lighthearted attitude towards his very-temporary art form. And according to his Tumblr, he's looking for a coffee roaster to sponsor his "coffee studio!" Rad.
