Esta chica tiene un gran talento.

Instagram está enloqueciendo con una nueva e increíble forma de presentar de el café que todos conocemos, lo más increíble es que lo popularizó una joven (muy joven) barista de Singapur. Adiós al típico corazón en la superficie de tu latte, la tendencia ahora son las figuras en tres dimensiones.

Posted this on my story and it was highly requested to be put on my main so here you go!

Tiene tan solo 17 años, se llama Daphne Tan  y ha revolucionado la forma en la tomamos café.

Shimmy shimmy yay, shimmy yay, shimmy yah, thank you for 15k! It’s insane how my corgi butt latte video has run laps, or rather wiggled its butt, around the internet. To be very honest, I wasn’t even planning on posting the video as I thought it wasn’t of quality (plus it’s paws were upside down). I recently received a question about how I feel about the success of my latte art and it really made me reflect. As a student whose world is largely centred around school activities, this hobby has opened up different facet of the world that quotidian school life cannot provide. I am able connect and interact with people from all over the world who found what I did intriguing. And I'm greatly appreciative of all the encouragement you all have given me in pursuing my passion of creating art in cups as it serves as a form of affirmation of the content I create. It is really amazing to see how the power of the media has been able to propagate a 17-year-old's passion. Thank you to the 15.4k of you for supporting me in what I do❤️

¿Cómo hace sus obras de arte? Con espuma, un poco de colorante comestible y mucha imaginación.

I think people were a little averse to my previous post so this morning's cup was less of an aberration haha

La muchacha dice que hace las decoraciones por diversión y porque le gusta, aunque sus creaciones no llegan al público porque puede demorarse hasta 20 minutos en un solo café.

Tried to recreate @kyoffee's shiba inu but in 3D! (don't worry my hands were clean haha)

En uno de sus posts en la red social la chica escribió:

“El mantra de que lo que comes primero con los ojos resuena conmigo y quería seguir una forma de arte que fuera diferente a la de un lienzo regular, que fuera más frágil y, por lo tanto, más complejo y desafiante “.

[Watch the full video on YouTube, link in my story] – Sorry for the lengthy captions on my recent posts but the increase in my outreach ability has called for personal reflection. I’ve received multiple media requests whereby various companies have asked me questions about my hobby and I appreciate it a lot because these questions make me ponder about my journey. “What do people say when they first see your latte art” was one question I got. I never really thought about it but here was my response. There is a spectrum of reactions. Many say "oh my gosh, it's so cute" and I've received comments expressing their awe of the wobbly lattes. I've actually even gotten a DM for a marriage proposal HAHAHAHA However, detractors often posit that my creations are a "waste of time", "didn't her parents teach her not to play with food" or "the coffee will get cold". My focus isn't really on the coffee per say, though I love coffee but rather, the art of food. The mantra "you eat with your eyes first" resonates with me and I wanted to pursue an art form that was different from a regular canvas, that was more fragile hence challenges me with its complexity. I just thought I’d share my thoughts!
