Knock-Out Coffee Art

Who said coffee was just for drinking? Not us, and definitely not the amazing coffee artists that turn a regular cup of joe into a jaw-dropping masterpiece almost too beautiful to drink.

Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day, and this year we are celebrating by gawking at some amazing portraits and artwork made using this caffeinated sip. Don’t forget to make your favorite spiked coffee recipes like this spiked arabic coffee cocktail for the ultimate pairing while browsing through these wow-worthy creations!
