Coffee Art

We've officially used most things that can be used for art from the Kitchen. Flour, Corn starch, Seeds, Lemons, Flowers, Straws, Salt, Sugar, Potatoes, Baking soda, Vinegar, Powdered Milk, Oil. 

So why not Coffee? There's so much left after filtering anyways! And it's a *gorgeous* brown!

  3. how fun! I've seen videos of professionals doing coffee art and it's amazing. I never really thought of using it for my little dude. Plus it would be safe when it inevitably ended up in his mouth!

    1. I would never waste coffee! I love it too much to waste it. This is the leftover coffee in the filter, after we filter it! We throw that anyways
