The World Latte Art Championship highlights artistic expression in a competition platform that challenges the barista in an on-demand performance.
In this championship the baristas present two identical samples of “art in a cup” for 3 different beverages. A latte, a macchiato, and a signature beverage. The two first pairs made only with a pitcher of milk. The signature beverage can be made with any surface aid at the choice of the barista. To ensure that the presented art is what the barista wanted to deliver, the judges will be given a picture what the intended design prior to the start of the presentation.
The beverages will be judged immediately for its visual attributes, creativity, identical patterns in the pairs, contrast in the patterns, and the baristas overall performance. Scores are openly shared as the competition unfolds.
Top top 6 competitors go to the final where one winner will be declared the World Latte Art Champion.
