Seattle is a wonderful area for coffee. Even better than you would expect. We have the major chains and hundreds (thousands?) of little espresso stands. In between are some nice neighborhood coffee shops like The Lyons' Den. That is where we had lattes yesterday. They always prepare lovely works of art. In fact, after we complimented the barista, she said they were about to go to a contest for this kind of pour.

My daily painting today is a cup of morning inspiration. The cup that inspired it had an even more lovely leaf pattern in the foam from the expert "pour". I believe the dribble down the side may be "on purpose" to create a stem for the leaf. Whoa.

If you want to get some additional great images of latte art, train at the Seattle Barista Academy.....or get your Barista's to get a refresher. Probably the best education you can get in the West. Jeff.
