Sure, we’ve watched our fair share of latte art how-tos on YouTube, but trying out the technique IRL could prove disastrous for some.

Enter The Ripple Maker, an innovation that is a total game changer for coffee lovers and 3-D printing enthusiasts alike.

The machine, which goes for just under $1,000, creates high-resolution designs and messages with tiny coffee droplets (which could be anything from customized text to a replica of your favorite Instagram) on the top layer of pre-made lattes. As the company states, “Milk froth is your canvas. Coffee extract is your medium.”

What’s even better: The Ripple Maker takes only 10 seconds to “print” your coffee art.

We foresee many coffee dates in the near future (if, you know, you’re willing to shell out those big bucks).
