Get your caffeine hit 21 times with these pics of latte art


For many of us, coffee is a morning staple that will kick our butts into action. After all Susty Girl, it’s likely you have shiz to do. My beverage of choice is the gentler wake-up call of a latte – sometimes soy, sometimes with milk. It’s the little things that make a big difference, so where should you source your next coffee fix?

This caffeinated listicle (spanning from my hometown Bristol, to the US, Australia, New Zealand and back again) celebrates impressive Latte art in coffee that has some susty cred. Enjoy!
