Latte Art ThrowDown II (part 1/3)

November 7, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

After all the dust has settled, we finally found the time to blog about Oriole Cafe’s Latte Art ThrowDown II.

This time round, we managed to attract a total of 18 participants (although a few of us joined in the fun only at the very last minute).

First & foremost, we would like to extend our thanks to the people who made this possible, Singapore Coffee Association (SCA) for reaching out to all the members as well as coffee lovers, Kimberly who has been running tirelessly seeing to all the mechanics and logistics. Kudos to Greenfields for sponsoring the milk, as well as the representatives from Greenfields who came down to support the event, Mr Gilbert, Ms Carmen & Mr Samson. Special mention must be given to Ms Carmen, Mr Christopher Short of Caffeto & Ms Kimberly Yer who spend their precious time to be our judges.

Milk for The NiteBy 7.40pm and after a few rounds of beer and wine, we got the event off to a start. First up, we have Alif who plies his trade at Jones. Nerves set in when you are the first person to step up. Nevertheless, he pulled off a very nice wave heart to the judges. Ivy from Oriole was the next, first time she is pulling latte art in front of such a large crowd, sees a little shivers in her hands. Puts out a lovely rosetta with nice solid foam. I take my hat off to her for being able to withstand the pressure even though she has been a barista only for the past three months.

Raj from our sister restaurant, Bedrock, got a little nice rosetta onto the table as well. Everyone can see that he has been putting hard work into training for this. Nizam of Jones amazed everyone by pulling off a swan. It’s definitely a lovely piece of work. Oriole has another barista putting his skill to the test; Astro stepped up and put a rosetta with lovely foam and nice definition.
