If there is one thing I am not ashamed to admit, it is that I am a Starbucks fan. I love everything they serve, I like the staff (most of them anyway), and more important I like the atmosphere. But I have noticed a real lack of coffee related posts on this blog, so I thought it was best I did some…
10 – Cup Protest
When I look at an empty cup of coffee the only thing I am thinking about is getting it filled, but when Paul Garbett looks at one he sees amazing scenarios and rather unusual works of art.
9 – Star Scooter
If this was a real scooter it would have been my number in the post “Top 10 Amazing Modified Scooters” but this is not real, but given the fact that it is made from Starbucks coffee cups makes it then bit more amazing.
8 –The art of Repurpose
It might not be the most mind-blowing art you are going to see, but there is something plainly beautiful about it as well.
7 – The Collection
It might look a little weird, but this stunning collection made with coffee cup lids and stir sticks is made from literally thousands and thousands of each kind to make something truly amazing.
6 – Cup Portraits
At first if you look at this image you might not think it is any good, but squint your eyes at it and the genius that it is comes to life, because while it might be just a few cups, the effect is stunning.
5 –Coffee Foam Art
For as long as baristas have been pouring coffee, some of them having been adding little works of art in the foam, and this is just a few of the very best of them.
4 – Cup Art
There is lots of great examples of coffee cup art, but this one that features over 800 works of art on coffee cups was made by just one person! Gwyneth Leech have been making these for years and the complete collection looks even better then seeing then individually.
3 – Coffee Replica
It took over 4 hours to make it, 5,200 coffee cups, with 180 gallons of milk and a mind-numbing 206 gallons of coffee! But it was all worth it because this massive replica is simply stunning.
2 – Nuisance to Niceness
To you and me a coffee stain from the spillage of the cup is a real nuisance. But to Hong Yi they are apparently “…like fallen leaves, all broken and in-perfect. But together they make something beautiful and amazing. ” and I could not agree with her more looking at this.
1 – The Archway of Coffee Cups
This is just 1 of 8 projects commissioned by Nescafe, made from 1,500 metal coffee cups and rebar the idea is that the vines growing over it will eventually cover the outer surface making it a truly amazing, and natural looking archway.
