Baristas with signature garnishing techniques to create hearts, swirls, and other simple designs with stir sticks and cream in cups of hot coffee latte, will seem like practitioners of a quaint art form if this invention takes off. See the best examples of coffee latte art.
A man named Oleksiy Pikalo invented a machine that he calls a Latte Art printing machine, AND he gives free online directions to build your own coffee latte art printing machine. Using an old flatbed plotter he bought from Ebay, a book on inkjet applications, and edible ink, he was able to create any image he wanted to see in his latte coffee cup.
Besides the simple directions which is mostly about the items you will need, he has a couple of videos showing his patent pending invention in action. One video shows how he created the coffee latte art image above which shows a King saying, "Can your latte do this?"
The other video shows his coffee latte printing machine making an impressive Starbucks coffee logo on top of the layer of foamed milk in the coffee cup.
