You don‘t even have to love coffee in order to appreciate these super creative latte foam artworks by Japanese artist Kazuki Yamamoto. And we‘re not talking about the little smiley faces or flat palm tree patterns: this 26-year old latte artist, based in Osaka, creates actual 3D foam sculptures in the coffee mugs of the Cafe10g visitors.

If you start your morning with a cup of tea or coffee, this post is for you! Following our first selection of creative coffee and tea mugs, here’s a list of some fresh ideas of what you could hold in your hands while sipping your favorite drink. Not only can these creative cups make your morning at least somewhat nicer, but they are always a great gift idea for a friend.
It’s nice to have something that makes you smile as early in the day as your first coffee cup. A Brooklyn-based team of designers (and coffee lovers) called Yumi Yumi, created a line of cups with goofy creatures on the bottom, which slowly emerge as you sip your drink. As of now, so-called Creature Cups include Octopus, Crocodile, Sea Otter, Spider, Shark and Lobster, but there’s also one with a skull.
You’ve probably seen baristas do some crazy latte art before, but it turns out that you can get even cooler results by dropping something as random as a couple of Hula Hoops into your cup. An unidentified friend of a London-based artist Stuart Rutherford dropped a pair of these potato snacks into coffee and saw a bird of prey staring back at them.
If you like coffee and art then this is for you! Russian artist Arkady Kim has recently created the world’s largest coffee bean mural which was unveiled in Moscow’s Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure. “The Awakening” was made out of 1 million coffee beans and took twelve days to complete. Weighing 397 pounds and spanning about 30 square meters it beats the previous record by Albanian artist Saimir Strati by 88 pounds and 5 square meters.
Inspired by the song of Jay Chou, Shanghai-based artist Hong Yi decided to create his portrait using nothing but Nescafe coffee stains on the bottom of a mug. Yi says that it was “a tricky medium to use – too much water and the rings wouldn’t form easily, very little water and you’d have to be precise with where you place the cup coz the rings would pretty much be permanent.”
In simple terms, the heat from your hot coffee-filled mug “Ironius” can be used to iron out a few creases of your shirt. Perfectly handy for those naughty ones who indulge in office romances. *Nina in her silky black bra are is included in the package.
