Just like painting, sculpting, graffiti or animation, a carefully poured latte is up there as one of the world’s most interesting art forms. So much so that the World Latte Art Championship began in 2006, pitting talented baristas against one another in free pouring and etching competitions. You, too, can unleash your inner artist by learning how to present your morning coffee in style.

Perhaps one of the most famous and unique examples of latte art is South Korean Lee Kang-bin, who has achieved near rock star status for his creations at his Seoul shop, Café C.

You don’t need any experience to participate in the class as you’ll discover the basics and build your technique from the ground up. During your class, you’ll learn how to produce proper microfoam that will make your latte art easier and more consistent. You’ll also discover the importance of milk quality and temperature; the foundations of latte art – pour speed, position, distance and movement and how to create different designs using these techniques.You’ll also receive a complimentary 200g bag of Union Hand-Roasted coffee to take home and enjoy. The class is a messy one as you’ll be pouring lots of milk, including using food colouring and coffee, so it’s probably best to avoid wearing your good white shirt!
