Week beginning October 13th - London Latte Art Smackdown

The London Latte Art Smackdown is nearing the starting line and we only 20 spaces left out of the total of 48. Judges have been almost confirmed for every night so far and include some of the top legends of coffee in London with names like Glenn Watson, Oli Bradshaw, James 'I won last year' Bailey, Jeremy Challender, Andrew Tolley, Marty Latham, James Hoffman and Phil the Bass Player.

As you may already know, we have all the heats going on at Kaffeine over the following dates with arrival around 7:15 and start time of 7:30 pm on October 21 and 28, November 4 and 11.

The final will be held at Square Mile Roastery on November 18th.

We have 12 spaces available each night in the heats, the top 3 will go through to the final at SQM. With up to £480 cash entry fees going back to the prize pool, and prizes doinated by SQM and Coffee Hit with perhaps more sponsors prizes to come, this is a great opportunity for baristas of London and beyond to get involved, have some comp practice, have some fun and win some prizes.

Competing cafes so far include
Holborn Grind
His Majesty The Coffee
Look Mum No Hands

If you or your baristas wish to compete, the best way is to pop into Kaffeine and pick your night and pay your £10 entry.
