Foam Critters – Latte Art by Kazuki Yamamoto
Kazuki Yamamoto is a 26-year-old Japanese barista who has taken the art of latte foam design into the next level. Gone are the days when customers are happy with a simple, flat design on their morning latte. Kazuki’s designs are not only well-detailed, they’re also in 3D. Some of the critters even spill over into other cups like that foam kitty up there eagerly reaching for the oblivious goldfish in the other cup. His art, by its very nature, is temporary and only low-resolution photos like the one above are what remains of his sculptures. He currently works at Cafe10g in Osaka, Japan, but he dreams of owning his own café one day.
