That Barista Thing, a Barista Championship was held in Vancouver at Library Square on Saturday September 4th. One of our contributing photographers who happens to also work as a Barista at Blenz Coffee in Pacific Centre, won 1st prize in the Etching Latte Art Competition.
Noam’s winning design was an Inukshuk etched in a Sugar Rimmed Latte, his prize was $1000.
This event attracted baristas from around the world, including Japan.
I wasn’t able to attend this competition, but I hear it was quite well attended and quite competitive as well.
