A local bar has taken coffee art to the next level thanks to their creative coffee portraits!


Langebaan, South Africa (13 May 2024) — Across social media, South Africans are sharing ‘coffee portraits’ that have made their own friends and family thirsty for art and creativity.

But, this is not the work of Artificial Intelligence (which has made many fantastical imaginings come true). Instead, it is the work of a local bar in Langebaan that decided to do something special for their customers at no extra cost.

Wunderbar has taken coffee art to the next level thanks to their innovative creativity. An idea that stemmed from wanting to bring more fun into the bar has become its own kind of movement, making any coffee lover’s experience that more memorable and surprising in the best way.

Explains Wunderbar’s Esti Teale. It began as something the manageress did herself by hand. But with time, it became apparent that there were downsides to such specially made coffee, like the cups arriving lukewarm by the time they reached patrons’ tables.

That’s when a special coffee printer was introduced.

“So the printer was delivered and we were able to do our magic and surprise our guests with portraits of themselves, their group of friends, their loved dogs, or just a greeting and good wish for the day,” says Etsi. 

“We believe that life must be fun and full of surprises, by being innovative and looking for new fun things to do all the time, we not only keep our clients happy but also our staff,” Esti adds of the happy consequences from the coffee portraits,” she adds. 

Another day, another way South Africans are making our country a happier place, one little surprise at a time.
