On April 14th, in Louisville, Kentucky, Sunergos Coffee will hosting the premiere of Monkey Mocha Fantastique, a latte art competition, and coffee sampling. Seriously, if Barista Nation Portland, and the Specialty Coffee Association of America/US Barista Championship show weren’t happening next week, we would so be there.
But if you’re lucky enough to be located in or driving distance to Louisville, you should totally check this out.
Timothy Strader, who wrote the film, gives the following synopsis: “Dave, a down on his luck and mediocre barista, loses his girl to the rival barista Stephan. When his ex-girlfriend Vella brings Stephan to the coffee shop, Dave impetuously challenges Stephan to a head-to-head latte art competition at the annual Finding The Flash competition. Dave must rely on Leslie, his bizarre mentor and sage of all things coffee, and a bit of luck to push himself to finally confront Stephan and seize his destiny.”
There are some sweet prizes assembled for the latte art competition winners, including:
• A Baratza Preciso grinder
• Coffee gear from Sunergos, Prima and Reg Barber
• Subscriptions to Barista Magazine
• Gift cards for Doc Crow’s, Cake Flour, Greenhaus, and Baxter Ave Theaters.
