Latte Animal Art

This is actually a photo taken last November from a charming little coffee house on the road down from Kiyomizudera in Kyōto. Latte art (drawing and or decorations made in the foamed milk) has become more common in boutique style coffee shops throughout Japan. These were crated as the foamed milk was added to the espresso - the cup is tilted around to form the general shape and then detail was added with a thin metal stick like instrument. Coffee is often offered as a set that includes a cake or sweet at a discounted price which is what you see here and the true beauty is they tasted as delightful as they looked.
