Week beginning October 7th - London Latte Art and Christmas Party Update

Just a quick update on where we are with the Latte Art competition, as well as news on the London Christmas Party.

The first heat was Tuesday just gone and two of the baristas from Curators have made it into the final, Krysty and Timothy. Congratulations to both.

Next Tuesday's competitors.
Catherine and Thomas from Curators
Greg from Rapha
Paul and Greg from Alchemy
David Robson from Association
Paul formerly from Cup in Dublin and now at Coffee Works and
Kaffeine's own Karol.

If you want to come among and support or just watch, you are more than welcome. All the heats are now full, but if you turn up on the night and wish to compete and there are drop outs, we will get you in. We have free savoury scrolls and cheap beer.

Judges this week include Andrew Tolley from Taylor Street, Glenn Watson and Arianna from Union. 

Further news is that the current UK Latte Art champion, Dhan Tamang will be one of the judges at the final at SQM and that the original compere from the 2008 smackdowns, Ross Brown from Browns of Brockley will be hosting on the evening. Amazing.
