    Default CFUK Christmas Pour-Down 2018





    Fancy trying your hand at latte art and competing against other forum members with a prize and the CFUK Christmas Latte Art Crown for the winner?
    Then enter the CFUK Christmas Pour-Down!




    There is no need to sign up or register or do anything complicated in advance. Simply log in to the thread which most suits you which will be set up for the times specified above. A Magic Word will be posted on each thread five minutes before the start time. This word and your name should be written on a piece of paper and included in the photo of your pour. Your photo upload must be made within the 1 hour time slot.


    The first 10 forum members per session to post an eligible photo will go into an online poll. If you miss the cut on the first session due to there being more than 10 unique participants then you can enter in the second session, and again in the third/forth if you miss the second/third.


    Participation is restricted to one eligible entry per member. Remember, it will be the first eligible 10 to post per session that will go through for voting.


    When all sessions have been completed the polls will go live, running concurrently. Voting will take place over a 5 day period. The winner will be the entry with the highest overall number of votes. In the event of a draw the organiser will cast the deciding vote!


    We’ve got prizes! The victor will win a kilo of beans generously donated by @foundrycoffeeroasters.com . The wonderful folk at Bella Barista have donated a kilo of beans too meaning prizes for the runners up! There will also be a forum prize, courtesy of @Glenn and the kudos of being Christmas Pour-Down Champ 2018 and the fun of taking part in this unique event!


    In the event of something we haven’t thought of cropping up - we’ll make it up as we go along! The organisers decision is most definitely final!

    Please let me know if anything isn't clear! And before you ask, it's going to be a 'free-pour', any style - heart, tulip, rosetta, swan etc! Remember, no 'paint' techniques allowed!

    The polls are up!

    Poll A

    Poll B

    Will professionals & mods/admins be allowed to enter or will they be getting their own categories?

    Admins such as @Rhys will now be banned from taking part. Judging from his recent pour it’s obvious he’s been having lessons from a pro.
