I Finally Found the Best Frying Pan — and It Doesn't Stick

Coffee + Creativity = Art

The bf (we're going to call him Jimmy from now on, okay? I really hate that phrase bf) is really into coffee. As in, we got rid of our microwave counter space in order to make room for the coffee pot, espresso machine, grinder and all the other bits of coffee paraphernalia. So when I found this link, I immediately had to forward it to him. For several years, Duluth based artists Andy and Angel Saur have been creating all of their works of art with coffee. Like fine watercolors, the coffee works as washes and shading and each painting is 100% coffee (with the exception of an acrylic coat to preserve the art). It started when the artists were working on a new exhibit for a coffee house. Hoping to create something unique and fun, they decided to work with coffee as a medium. To achieve the different gradients, the artists brew their own thick coffee and dilute as needed. I personally think the results look rich and inviting, like sepia toned paintings. And somehow even their rendition of George Costanza mananges to capture a nostalgic feeling. But don't take my word on it, decide for yourself by checking out their coffee art gallery.

Yah, I was hoping it'd be about the design you can make by pouring coffee with the milk, etc... I think Megnut (food blog) has a good post on that, but I could be remembering wrongly since I read way too many food blogs everyday. Those paintings are pretty awesome, however. Just goes to prove that you can make something amazing out of anything.

Cool! I'll sure those paintings will last for a long time. The coffee stain on my shirt from a few years ago, it’s still there! Still prefer tea though … Varat http://www.puerhcha.com

that's some gorgeous stuff. Although I'm slightly disappointed because I thought this would be about the little designs some people like to make in your foam - those are beautiful, but, fleeting works of art
