Amazing coffee art: from film icons to animals illustrated in lattes

What do you see in your morning coffee? "Coffee" would be our plain answer. But for some baristas in the world, the steamed milk surface of a latte or cappuccino is a canvas for intricate patterns and even portraits. In celebration of International Coffee Day (29 September) we've rounded up 20 of the most impressive examples of latte art.

From film characters with excruciating detail (you have to see Edward Scissorhands) to adorable animals (such as the cat leaping from its mug into a mug of 'swimming fish'), prepare to be amazed. Warning: this may leave you forever disappointed with your coffee order.
