Meadow Fresh NZ Latte Art Championship Workshop 2020, 6pm – 9pm

The workshop is designed for anyone wanting to compete or coach in the New Zealand Latte Art Championship. We will breakdown the scoring categories so you can best prepare yourself to compete, referencing the Rules & Regulations documents from the World Coffee Event. This is not a hands-on workshop, we will not be teaching you how to pour latte art. It is a rules-based event, lecture and power-point presentation with Q&A.

As part of the workshop, we will send out a pre-test to those attending to start you thinking in terms of the rules within the Championship.

Come along and learn how to understand the rules and get the best out of your competition experience. All welcome.
