New Monthly Latte Art Throwdown in Newcastle

I’d like to keep everyone abreast of whats going on up here in the ‘toon’ and introduce this new event which Alex Forsyth and I are organising! Last Wednesday of the month each month with any luck!

First of hopefully monthly Latte Art Throwdowns in the mighty town of Newcastle upon Tyne. Bring your jug, cup and etching tools and have a crack at Newcastle’s best baristi.

We’ll have a load of single origin coffees to try through the pour over and hopefully some beers too.

Are you interested in seeing what this Latte art thing is all about? Come along and watch!

Please feel free to invite people who you think might be interested!

This is designed to be a fun event for watchers and partisipants alike. The aim is to increase awarness of quality service skills and to learn new skills too.

Don’t worry if you can’t pour anything, by the end of the night you should be able to or at least know how it works.

We’re not afilliated to any supplier or cafe and we would like to take this to different locations each month. It’s just about creating a communty of quality focused coffee nuts.

Plans are on the way to have a plaque that we can compete for each month, have an open air event in the town centre, take the throwdown to Pumphreys and loads more!

If you are interested in hosting an event in the future please give us a shout!

  1. Hi Stuart,

    Was this the only event or are they still going? It would be good to meet some other coffee-heads outside work.

    Cheers,
    Anth
