You've heard of latte art, but what about filter doodles? Ohio-based artist Benjamin Blake has made a name for himself in the coffee community for his stylish ink drawings made on coffee filters. He was recently featured on Cool Hunting and the Kitchn, so we decided to see if he had any L.A.-based drawings. In fact, he did.

Now that L.A. has fully embracedthe third wave coffee movement, Draw Coffee had plenty to choose from. (It's a good thing he didn't decide to draw on paper cups, since those are being phased out of fancy coffee houses these days.)

Doodles include Intelligentsia, Handsome Roasters, Tonx, and Secret Squirrel. Click on to see his work.
