Amateur Latte Art Challenge 2018

Recommended Posts

Will this be taking off again at some point? I’d happily make a tamper/ portafilter handle to go towards the prize pot 🤙

Not with my skillset when it comes to any type of art let alone latte


It doesn't matter how you get there it's only the end result that matters

That would be ace Joey!

 

If we get 16 registrations of interest I'd be up for running this again.

 

Format for the challenge will be a series of knockout rounds where entrants' names will be pulled from a hat, paired with another entrant and listed below. You will then need to get in touch with your opponent and agree a date and time for your round. Please list the date and time on this thread and also PM me.

 

Depending on the number of entrants, it may be necessary to offer a bye or run a round with three entrants instead of two. If this is necessary, it will be determined randomly.

 

Once your round has begun, you will have 30 mins to upload one photo of your best latte. Photo must include the magic word that will be uploaded at start of each round.

 

Once entrants' photos have been uploaded, a poll will be set up which will be open for seven days. Winner will progress to next round.

 

Create a list below to throw your hat in the ring

Am totally up for this, though I won’t have access to my machine from mid to end Aug; will that be a problem?

My local dairy built new offices on the back of the additional revenue that I pushed their way last time, because of this damn event - so I'm expecting to see them with new vans this time round. I'm in, for a laugh:

Lots of everything: machines, grinders, roaster, beans, tampers, baskets, blah, blah

However - Too much is never enough!

Haha, for the fun of it... never done hanging hearts and swans and all that jazz, though. Show stopper?

 

But before I sign up: what weekdays and times (GMT) do you have in mind?

I don’t think there’s any hard rules with this. Anyone matched with me would be likely be performing after the kids are in bed haha

At least you know I can’t win because I’m contributing to the prize. Don’t want to be accused of rigging it

The odds on pulling off the double leaning jowler are astronomical... Although so are the odds on me pouring a swan!
