A barista in New York City has gained notoriety for creating unique portraits of his customers in the milky froth of coffee — although the designs only last a few minutes.

"This doesn’t last forever," said Mike Breach. "I think that’s what makes it special, you know. That’s what makes it something more personal to me because I actually just painted it for that person to see."

Check out the video report above to see some of Breach's coffee portraits.
