We are increasingly being presented with wonderful patterns on top of our lattes, flat whites and cappuccinos in the UK's top espresso bars. These patterns, or latte art, are produced by the way the velvety textured milk is poured into the rich brown crema of the coffee.
The UK Latte Art Competition is an exhilarating competition showcasing pouring perfection. Each competitor will have 10 minutes to produce three matching pairs of drinks with the most complex and visually appealing designs possible.
