SCA UK Latte Art confirmed for Caffè Culture
The Specialty Coffee Association UK Chapter (SCA UK) has announced plans to host the 2020 UK Latte Art Championship at Caffè Culture 21, which is scheduled to take place 2nd and 3rd September at the Business Design Centre, London. The two-day event will see 20 ‘rising star’ baristas compete to become the UK Latte Art Champion by showcasing latte art skills and pouring matching pairs of drinks with the most complex and visually appealing designs possible.
SCA UK national co-ordinator Rob Ward said: “We’ve been incredibly keen to get a date in the diary for Latte Art, as it’s one of our most popular competitions and we are really looking forward now to reconnecting with the coffee community in September at Caffè Culture.
“Latte Art seems to ignite a real passion in people. From the moment we open the competition with the eagerly anticipated ‘fastest finger first’ to crowning the champ, there’s an infectious buzz that spills out and this explains why it’s so well supported by the industry.”
Whoever claims the UK title will go on to compete in the SCA World Latte Art Championship, which is scheduled for the end of November in Taipei, Taiwan.
