Week beginning September 29th - London Latte Art Challenge - On again

Last year we held the inaugural London Latte Art Challenge and it is with great excitement that we are able to say..it's on again.

We are very, very lucky because Square Mile Coffee have offered to hold the final at the roastery again, and all heats leading up to this will be held at Kaffeine. Not only that, but Kaffeine, Square Mile and Coffee Hit (with hopefully others to follow), have agreed to donate prizes for the finalists as well as all entry money (£10 per entry or £320), going into the prize pool to be split amongst the finalists.

Heats will comprise of up to 8 baristas, so there is spaces for 32 altogether and the top 2 from each heat will go into the final.

Dates for the heats are:
Tuesday October 21st
Tuesday October 28th
Tuesday November 4th
Tuesday November 11th
and the final is on
Tuesday November 18th

Here is a link to a blog post on last years final and you will also see links to some of the most amazing photos taken by lead judge, Glenn Watson.


If you are interested in taking part, here are the details.

Entry is by paying your £10 and putting your name down on the entry forms at Kaffeine, the sooner you put your entry in, the sooner you can choose the date you wish to enter on. You have to come see us to put your name down. You can put others names down too if you wish.

Entry is from 7:15 pm each evening and the competition starts at 7:30 pm sharp, guests/supporters are welcome to come along too and Kaffeine will have beers for sale and some food available if your peckish/thirsty.

There will be three judges on each evening and we will design and put out a rules sheet so everyone knows what they are aiming for (rosettas/tulips/hearts) and not allowed to do (animals/etching/rude things).

This is a fantastic opportunity to get to meet and have a few drinks with others from the industry, to have a go at being the best in London at Latte Art, to winning some amazing prizes and cash and to bringing together the London cafe scene and having some fun at the same time.
