Twelve semi-finalists for the World Latte Art Championship stand in front of a large screen & stage wall.The Brazil World Coffee Championships got off to a beautiful start today, with 38 competitors pouring dazzling designs in the 2018 World Latte Art Championship Round One! Congratulations to the competitors representing Australia, China, Greece, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Lithuania, Malaysia, Poland, Spain, and Ukraine who advanced into the Semi-Finals of the World Latte Art Championship.

Round One began with two portions—the Art Bar, where competitors pour a single creative latte pattern; and the stage performance, creating two identical free pour, and two identical designer lattes. Scores from both stages are combined to reveal the top 12 semi-finalists, who will create two matching sets of different free-pour latte patterns, and one matching set of free-pour macchiatos. Join us from 11:00 AM Thursday November 8 (GMT-2) to catch all the action, alongside the World Coffee In Good Spirits Championship!
