New World Latte Art Championship Line-Up Released!

Coffee Fest Seattle is just around the corner, and to kick it all off, the New World Latte Art Championship will get barista blood pumping! In years past, the latte art competition—which takes place on the dramatic and beautiful sky deck high above downtown Seattle—has followed a traditional format. But beginning with Coffee Fest Minneapolis last June, the competition has been revamped, pitting competitors against each other in a head-to-head format. In Minneapolis, we saw how exciting and fun this format could be. Coffee Fest Seattle will be the perfect place for the format to continue, bringing 64 baristas from around the world into a competition bracket. The prize for the winner? A cool $2500, and bragging rights, of course.
