These creations are too cute to drink.
Forget oil paints and colored pencils; there’s a new medium that one artist is perfecting — milk foam.
Chang Kuei-fang is an artist, barista, and owner of Taiwanese coffee shop My Cofi. Located in Kaohsiung, the cafe specializes in creating a work of art in your latte foam. It’s more than just drawing in the foam, too — to make each cup, she layers the steamed milk on top of the drink and paints it with coloring made from espresso, chocolate or fruit jam, creating a 3D illustration right in your cup.

She paints everything from cartoon characters and caricatures to creepy life-like cockroaches.
You need a stomach made of steal to put your lips to this cup.
And if you bring in a photo of your pet, Chang will make you an edible portrait that’s almost too adorable to drink. “I came up with ways to express their charm,” Chang told Reuters.
Because these pieces are so intricate and detailed, they can be pricey. Typically, they cost around 700 Taiwanese dollars, which converts to a little over $20 USD.

Her frothy creations have earned widespread attention and acclaim, with My Cofi earning over 33,000 likes on Facebook and a 4.5-star average review on TripAdvisor, making the coffee shop a stop you don’t want to miss if you’re ever visiting the country.
