As part of Cabin Fever 2019, Yahava Margaret River hosted a Latte Art Smackdown where the best baristas in the South West and beyond went head to head in a latte art battle as exhilarating as a double shot espresso.
Picture this, there was music from The Wedding DJ, finger food was provided, while wine, beer, and of course, coffee from Yahava was available for purchase.
Our 3 judges with their wealth of experience sat court:
- Rob from Yahava wholesale Vasse, an amazing coffee roaster
- Tracy, one of our most loved customers from Deckchair in Augusta
- Scott from Espresso Medic
Contestants were drawn randomly into two Pools (A and B).
Both Pools competed among themselves over 3 rounds, playing each other only once.
Each Round was judged on a particular style of Latte Art.
3 Judges will appoint 1 point each per battle with the winner receiving the most points.
