Walnut Hills coffee shop and Jazz venue Caffè Vivace is hosting a latte art throwdown 7-10 p.m. May 30 for up to 32 competitors — and spots are still open.
Baristas and aspiring coffee artists can create anything from a macchiato to a latte in five rounds of competition to be judged by a panel including Justin Carabello of Carabello Coffee and Kathy Wade, the co-founder and CEO of Learning Through Art Inc.
Registration is free (register here) and all competitors must pay $5 cash at the venue for supplies. The event is open to anyone who wants to watch and all drinks made for the zero-waste competition will be given out for free. The bar will also be open during the event for anyone who wants more than caffeine.
Latte art winners will receive assorted merch like T-shirts, mugs and a Clever dripper.
Caffè Vivace is located at 975 E. McMillan St., Walnut Hills, caffevivace.com.
