TikTok has a way of introducing you to unique but not always necessary kitchen gadgets — and this latte art pen is one of them. However, I went down a rabbit hole watching people create some of the most beautiful art atop their steamed milk, and now I’m convinced I need it.
The CHENGU Latte Art Pen uses coffee grounds, cinnamon, cocoa powder, turmeric or whatever other ground spices you prefer to draw with. So really, it’s not exactly the latte art you may see at a real coffee shop where it’s actually done with the milk. However, it’s still pretty cool, and the pen is easy to use. Simply fill it with your choice of spice or sugar, press the power button on the pen and start drawing.
There are a few iterations of this pen on Amazon, but the CHENGU Latte Art Pen is affordable, ships quickly with Prime and comes with 19 stencils. If you’re not a natural artist, the stencils are key to making your creations look like a pro did it.
Also, let’s get this out of the way — yes, the latte pen looks like something else that’s a little bit naughty. Don’t worry, as people on TikTok haven’t failed to mention that within the pen’s 4.4 billion views. But get your head out of the gutter! It’s just a latte art pen.
You can add latte art to your morning routine for a small pick-me-up, use it to decorate post-meal coffees at your next dinner party or treat your roommate to a decorated cup of joe for a special occasion. Nonetheless, according to the product description, you can also use the CHENGU Latte Art Pen to decorate cakes, cookies, hot chocolate, toast and more.
If you’re looking for a new hobby — or you’re also mesmerized by the latte art on TikTok — score the pen while it’s on sale for $15 on Amazon now.
