There’s been a trend concerning rainbow food that can be both dreamy and beautiful (bagels and donuts) as it can be horrific and unappetizing (look up rainbow grilled cheese and pizza, it is not a delicious-looking situation).

We’re not sure how the colors don’t bleed or you leave the cafe without blue lips, but we don’t care because they are so damn glorious.
Watching this get poured is so mesmerizing and satisfying. We are hypnotized. It looks somehow more decadent than hot chocolate or any old latte art. It looks like an optical illusion in a beverage, and we would order ten just to watch them be made.

Meet Mason Salisbury, a talented barista, or self-proclaimed “technista” in Las Vegas at Sambalatte. He dedicates most of his creations to his girlfriend, which gives us the feels and makes us wish we had a man like that.
Food porn is one thing that always make our hearts beat faster, but coffee porn is opening up a whole other world. You’ll never go back to regular old coffee again.
Sigh. Peacock feather coffee. So unbelievably pretty. We feel like this would have been such a Carrie drink from Sex In The City.
