A bit late to publish, this was December 2012 event in Den Haag. It’s Latte Art Champion 2012. There were about 66 barista who joined the competition. In total there were 15 groups, and mostly each group formed of 4 baristas; only one group had only 2 baristas. They should present one latte according to the lottery task drawn by a panel of judges. Later on the winner from each sub-group competed with another winner in their groups, and so on, till they got 15 winners.
These big-15winners competed to make 2 kinds of latte art; again with the lottery. In this level, they battled one on one in the stage.
A big screen was helped the supporters to see what was going on the stage and the result that the panel of judges had made.
Though I didn’t attend until the end, due to my last train, but it’s fun, friendly atmosphere, and bring me more passion on coffee.
