Mmmm, Coffee

I’m no good without my morning coffee, which I take with lots of cream. Why? Because I’m a fractal lover. Nature explains the connection:

Coffee is heavier than milk and the battle between gravity and surface tension plays out at the boundary between the two liquids. The coffee falls vertically through the milk (bottom, left, with water replacing milk for ease of viewing), and the fractal pattern emerges.
