Latte Art Smackdown at MIFF screening of “Barista”

Genovese is proud to present the screening of “Barista”, a documentary that follows the story of “Five top baristas find themselves pushing the limits of coffee perfection to win the National Barista Championship – a surreal competition where even one mistake is far too many.”

To celebrate the screening, and Melbourne’s great coffee community, we are holding a Latte Art Smackdown prior to the film, at The Forum Theatre at 5:00pm on Thursday 11th August. The film will screen across the road at ACMI at 6:30pm, and tickets for the film are available at www.miff.com.au

The format is simple – fast paced head to head knockout rounds with competitors facing off using the new Viper standalone steam wand units. Espresso shots will be pulled for them separately and the Baristas will get one go to pour a pattern of their choice, the judges will point to their top pick on the count of 3, and the pour receiving the most picks will win and move on to the next round!

Supporters of the event are: Dolo Cafe Supplies, Bombora Coffee and Water Supplies, Cafe Imports Australia, The Little Guy Espresso, Viper Steamer, Procal Dairies, and Bean Scene Magazine

Judges: Joe Tynan – Cafe Imports, Sarah Baker – BeanScene Magazine, Ben Toovey – Genovese Coffee
