When is the last time you got a cup of latte art that you basically wanted to frame? And we’re talking more than a little foam heart. Latte art can get so intricate, it’s a shame you have to drink it! Some of the best latte artists in the game are strutting their stuff on Instagram, and we’ve made a list of who to follow if you appreciate a good foam masterpiece.
1. @baristart: This baristartist specializes in foaming up portraits of the stars with an uncanny likeness. P.S. The caption to this photo is, “Did I brew that?” #Winning.
3. @dreadfullvegan: Barista Steve Cuevas knows that espresso looks so much cuter with a little bear peeking out of it.
4. @barista_dritan_alsela: This German latte artist is also a business owner! You can bet every latte coming out of his cafe is lovely.
5. @cabellcoffee: Yes, there are latte art championships, and this guy has won it three times. It’s no surprising given his clean, elegant style.
6. @timothysweetbarista: This guy’s name is Timothy Sweet, which we’re pretty sure could be the name of a latte-making superhero. If you’re interested in taking up latte art for yourself, check out his videos.
7. @garyperong: Gary has a knack for flowery designs that remind us of floral baroque patterns. Latte art-printed clothing anyone?
8. @barista.fan: It’s like Swan Lake just hit your cup! This Chinese barista has a way with swans, hearts, rosettes and basically anything you can think up.
9. @barista_dash: This coffee pro mostly sticks to these leaflike shapes, improving them each time. Practice makes perfect!

13. @simbricks: Simeon Bricker is a Jack of many trades and latte art is obviously one of them. His feed is full of new designs he’s trying out.
14. @belgianbarista: Jelle Van Echelpoel has been the Swedish Latte Art champion for two years running, so it’s no wonder his designs are simply beautiful every time.
15. @rhysodd: OMG. Umbrella bear. How much happier would your mornings be waking up to this little guy every day?
16. @gunsoo_shin: This coffee artist gets inspiration from making art beyond the cup. Look out for symmetrical designs of all kinds.
