For Filipino artist Liv Buranday, aka @livscreams on Instagram, coffee is for much more than just drinking! The Philippines-based nursing student was inspired by his father’s love for coffee and began experimenting with the grounds as a medium for her artwork. She says, “I’ve always known him to love brewed coffee, and then a thought popped out when he opened that Folgers Classic Roast—perhaps I can use its contents as art.” Thus, the hashtag #groundcoffeeart was conceived.

For each illustration, Buranday uses only her hands and a toothpick to organize the granules into the clever arrangements, occasionally adding natural elements like leaves or small sticks to complete the picture. She also sometimes use glue to avoid having loose granules all over the place. Then Buranday photographs each piece against a white background and shares the creations on her Instagram account.
