Coffee art has officially been taken to the next level

posted by @JonManuel - 

I'm not a very patient person, so it's difficult for me to imagine waiting SO LONG to enjoy a cup of caffeinated goodness. I drink coffee for its effects, not for its beauty. Maybe that's just me.

Vogue breaks down what's happening at a cafe in South Korea that has so many art/coffee lovers freaking out:

Perhaps one of the most famous, and unique, examples of late is South Korean Lee Kang-bin, who has achieved near rockstar status for his creations at his central Seoul shop, Café C. There, he recreates famed works like Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night on coffee. This isn’t just a white and tan approximation of the masterpiece, it’s a Technicolor rendering done by “painting” using thick cream mixed with food coloring. He calls his cups—which take up to 15 minutes to create—“CreamArt” and sells them for approximately $8 to his loyal customers.
