Latte Art Smackdown Win!

February 12, 2018

Last Wednesday night, Coffee Hit baristas from our North Lakes, Garden City and Indooroopilly stores competed in a Latte Art Smackdown competition in Brisbane’s West End.

In this fast paced, knockout-style competition, 18 baristas went head-to-head to create specific latte art designs as requested by the judges. Creations were judged on design, symmetry and contrast with the winner of each head-to-head advancing to the next round.

Whilst the experience was a first for a couple of our baristas, we’re thrilled to announce that both the winner and runner up were two of our very own! In just her second latte art competition, Dee from our North Lakes store took out the title with flawless execution, containing her nerves to deliver consistent, steady pours and intricate designs. Meanwhile, Kathlyn from Garden City was a natural, claiming 2nd place in her first ever latte art competition.

Such a wonderful result for our Coffee Hit baristas and network and so proud to see our baristas take to centre stage. Watch this space!
