The famous Japanese barista (coffee specialist) Kazuki Yamamoto (Kazuki Yamamoto) fully mastered the art of latte art. He was one of the first to create not two-, but three-dimensional drawings on coffee foam. Nevertheless, this was no longer enough for him, and the artist went even further. He depicted incredible hyperrealistic drawings of cats in espresso cups.
