Here is new one tutorial how to create coffee cream using just a few Photoshop filters.

 

In the beginning of tutorial we should find some appropriate picture with cup of coffee. You can find it on the Google Images of feel free to use mine picture. Open up the picture and start our tutorial. I would like to add some gradient to our dark liquid surface. Use theElliptical Marquee Tool to create selection as shown on the picture below.
