Pup-a-chino! Dog Inspired Latte Art

At EcoDog, we are not just fans of coffee…but fanatics! Living on the West Coast we get to enjoy the abundance of easy-access coffee drive-thus, endless amount of local roasters and delicious new concoctions whipped up by the neighborhood baristas!
Portland, Oregon, being a hub for the coffee trend, has opened up a whole new world of coffee exposure to me!

Latte art is one of my favorite surprises when you order your drink only to discover a hidden treasure! Enjoy it while it lasts though, your one of a kind art piece is about to be destroyed with your first sip! Most commonly seen in the “rosetta” or flower/leaf shaped pattern, or, sometimes your barista will get creative.  At one of my favorite Portland coffee shops, Random Order, I’ve gotten everything from a skull and cross bones to my favorite heart with wings (and a rosetta! ooo!).

If you aren’t yet familiar with Latte Art, we won’t blame your barista for being lazy ( perhaps just uninspired?).
EcoDog dug up a few fun and inspiring animal-themed latte art pieces to help inspire your Monday!
