A Latte Art Throwdown at Angel’s Island

I spend a lot of time at Angel’s Island Coffee House, along with Constance Smith of Cosmopolitan Cornbread. So I was really giddy with glee when Angel’s Island asked me to be a judge in their Latte Art Throwdown.

The event went down on April 30th at 7:00PM. Three judges, five baristas, and three rounds of different designs.

Once the competition started, I got sort of nervous because there I was, a total amateur, sitting in with two other judges who knew what they were doing. They were all serious and making notes on their score cards.

But I had fun anyway. I am grateful and thankful for Angel’s Island thinking of me and including me.

This was not the first Latte Art Throwdown. The first one was hosted by Grounded Coffee in Madison back in March. I hope this is the beginning of a running series. Wouldn’t it be cool if ALL the valley’s baristas got involved? Old Towne Coffee, Southbrew Coffee, Highbrow Cold Brew, Rocket City Expresso…. Yes please.
