Thanks for a Great Latte Art Showdown, Everyone!

What a great time! The Latte Art Throwdown was AWESOME. Thanks to East End Brewing for the cold wheatey brews, Pittsburgh Specialty Coffee Week staff and volunteers for making this whole week memorable, the shops and barista’s making it possible, and to you. Without y’all we wouldn’t have a craft to polish, coffee to enjoy talking about with others, and latte art to bring a small bit of morning joy to. Congrats to our own Jamie, Matt of Espresso A Mano, and Sarah of Caffè d’Amore Catering for taking the three coveted podium spots. Well done! 

Below is a brief description of the contest rubric, and the pic of the winning cups, found at the Coffee Week Throwdown page.
