I’d like to say a huge thank you to @MildredM for all of the effort that she put into keeping the LAC running smoothly, and for my amazing bar towel :)

 

Well done to everyone who to part and contributed. What a great community we have here!!

 

I think the LAC has been a great learning curve for me, I only got my machine in August and well let’s just say I’ve still not really learnt how to do latte art, BUT I’m heading in the right direction and I’ve come on leaps and bounds since the challenge started.

Massive thanks to all involved. What a truly glorious event this was, and I feel privileged to have been involved and even to win the thing (£5 in the post for all who voted )

 

So now this is official, I’ve added it to my CV, quit my job, and now working full time as a barista down my local cafe

 

Oh and to all wondering, @Jony paid up haha. Thank you matey much appreciated

 

Just leaves me to thank my darling wife and kids, her for leaving me alone to giggle and sweat in the kitchen for 45MINS, and the kids for staying asleep when I needed them to

Have followed this all the way through and resounding thought was that everyone who entered showed "forum spirit" ( hopefully no one who got knocked out is currently taking it all to seriously, although have heard @joey24dirt is now growing a beard.... :) )

Seriously, well done all competing and thanks all for organising, has provided many an amusing moment as well as some close calls.

That should say @Snakehips ^^^ and I can’t edit because the forum seems to be down?
