Aaaah, latte art, that sublime foamy touch that adds a fern- or heart-shaped message of love and caring into your bleary morning. As some baristas might tell you, foam art is as essential to a good cup of latte as the presentation of a dessert or the garnish on a cocktail — it adds to the overall experience of the consumption. Bay Area Coffee Community has decided to up the ante by hosting an actual latte art throwdown. The six-event series launches at Barista Nation SF and is then hosted at a different coffee shop each month, closing out at Coffee Bar on June 13. Each event, judged by a rotating panel of pros, will have three winners; at the end of the series, the biggest winner walks off with a home espresso machine, bathed in latte art glory.
