What an amazing turnout!
The latte art throwdown on Monday night was a huge sucsess. Barista’s from near and far, slinging the best milk they could muster under the intense pressure. A crowd of 150 strong, cheered on their mates as Sam gradualy lost his voice to the microphone.
Amy Caufield (Via Battisti) took out the prize with her inverted rosetta trumping Shanon Roach’s flawless rosetta, with a unanimous vote from the judges.
$5 beers and cakes and generous donations from the crowd raised over $1000 for Jenga, a community outreach program in Uganda. www.jengauganda.org
We all had a blast and couldn’t beleive the turn out.
