You'll be able to pour some amazing designs with these cups in Boston

Just found out today that the amazing team at Espresso Parts will support the U.S. Latte Art Exhibition taking place in Boston in conjunction with the SCAA show as the Official Porcelain Sponsor! Those of you competing in this first-of-its-kind competition are some lucky ducks: you get to use these amazing cups in your performance! Register now!

As I’ve been blogging about lately—since it’s awesome and groundbreaking and important and cool—the U.S. Latte Art Exhibition is the first step toward the U.S. having a seat at the World Latte Art Championship table. This competition gets more and more esteemed all the time, and it’s high time the United States had an entry on the international stage! From April 11 to 13 in Boston at the SCAA Conference. the U.S. Latte Art Exhibition will pull out all the stops in getting this competition format down. The hope is that, after successfully pulling this Exhibition off in Boston, the United States will have an official U.S. Latte Art Championship in 2014, from which we’ll send the champion to compete on behalf of the country at the World Latte Art Championship taking place in Gothenburg, Sweden.
