Sage have fronted an Oracle machine valued at £1600 as a prize for the winner of a latte art throw-down to be held at Prufrock in July. Sage are putting up a grinder as the runner up prize. All milk will be foamed on the Oracle auto-steam wand. There will be a professional judging panel and any tie breaks will go out to the audience for a people’s choice. Sign up commences 19th June.
We anticipate some interest in this, the UK’s second richest coffee competition (James Bailey!) Sign will commence one month prior to the event and will involve tweeting out a photo of your latte art (something we all secretly want to do all the time but feel we mustn’t do it too much).
So that we can find your latte art online, we ask that you include the hash tag #autosteamchallenge. The photo most favourited by the end of each day on Twitter and Instagram at 6pm will win a qualification space. Don’t worry if you are short on followers as Sage and Prufrock are on board for plenty of retweets. Doors at 6:30pm on Friday the 17th of July.
It is necessary that you are able to attend the event if you qualify, so if you are unable to attend, please give us plenty of notice and we can notify any runners up from the heats.
There are 27 spaces available so we will be running the online heats between the 19th of June and the 15th of July.
See you all on the 17th.
