In the same spirit as Cheeto Conan O’Brien, one reader alerted us to this time-lapse video of a similar artistic creation. Built for an annual coffee festival in Sydney, Australia, the portrait required over 3,600 cups of coffee in varying shades. The shades were adjusted by controlling the amount of milk in each cup, and although we’re pretty impressed with the end result, we’re not sure the subject of this portrait is quite as iconic as Mr. O’Brien.
