SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A hot cup of coffee is better when served with creative flair.

Many people need caffeine to get their day started, but adding adorable art to a cup of java makes it all the more better according to Jina Bolton, who runs

She posts pictures of cups of coffee that have been given a dash of cuteness by baristas who draw things like hearts, leaves, faces, reindeers, and other images onto the top of the liquid with foam, steamed milk, caramel, chocolate, or cream.

Bolton has seen art pieces appear in all sorts of coffee shop drinks and admits that seeing mini images in her cup makes her day a little brighter.

She says, “I am more likely to return to a coffee shop if they’ve taken time to make my coffee pretty. It’s usually a sign of a coffee shop that cares.”
