Wonderful pours and a great competition... unfortunately only one lucky person can win - which is a shame as there were many deserving pours along the way and many individuals who should consider themselves “winners” with their art.

 

You’ve all seen my attempt in R1 and I’m afraid I’m not one of them - as I’ve said before, Terry Wogan’s latte art was better than mine - and it still is, bless his soul. ;-)


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

However - Too much is never enough!

At least you had the plums to enter & there's a whole year of practice before next year!

It’s been a really enjoyable competition. I’d encourage others to join in next time, it’s been great fun. @Mrboots2u did it without a machine!

Huge congratulations @joey24dirt :)

 

CFUK LAC Champion 2018!

Huge congrats to you too @mmmatron - your pours were as good as they get! You are also a champ in my eyes :)

 

I know I am a little early but I couldn't wait any longer! The final thread in this year's comp will be the Awards Ceremony on Friday - pics of various prizes can be shared, more pats on backs administered, and probably a good bit of banter and hilarity will ensue!
