Extraordinary Coffee Art Uses The Drink, The Beans, and The Brewed Grounds


We’ve certainly seen our share of coffee art lately. However, Indonesian artist Ghidaq al-Nizar is using his morning brew in all of its forms.

Whether it’s in liquid form, or using just-brewed beans, Ghidaq creates beautiful paintings and sculptures, not wasting any part of the brewing process. The project is appropriately tagged #zerowastecoffee, and you can see more of the project at Coffeetopia on Instagram.
