You NEED to See This Man’s Out-of-This-World Coffee Art

We LOVE our coffee (sorry, Kristen Bell!), and we also just so happen to love art and all its collaborative forms, so it’s pretty much a given that we’d be bowled over by 26-year-old Lee Kang Bin‘s latte art creations. But trust us when we say this isn’t your everyday espresso-based flower design: Bin tackles everything from pop-culture Disney faves to fine art (and basically anything in between that strikes his fancy), and his masterpieces — yes, masterpieces — are pretty much a must-see for any coffee fan.

Bin, who is based in South Korea and owns his own café called Cafe C, taught himself how to make what he calls his “cream art” lattes during his 10 years on the job as a barista. Drawing inspiration from the world around him, Bin’s coffee art has become a huge hit in Seoul — so much so that he now teaches classes on how to do it.

While you can marvel at all of his creations over on Instagram, we’ve chosen a few faves for your viewing pleasure, including his Disney-inspired Beauty and the Beast rendering…

And The Little Mermaid too…

There’s also Aladdin

Alice in Wonderland

Pinocchio

and Bambi

And his talents certainly aren’t limited to Mickey-based options.

There’s also Harley Quinn…

Or Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”…

The “Mona Lisa”…

A scientific take on caffeine…

Unicorns…

And gorgeous flowers like you’ve never seen.

There’s even a little penguin that transforms from coffee art to an IRL plushy!

Now, there’s just one problem: These just may be too pretty to drink!

Which cup of coffee art is your fave? Let us know @BritandCo!
