On Sunday in Ithaca we here at Gimme had an internal latte art throwdown. It was time to show off new tricks and old favorites that we can pour into lattes and cappuccinos. This competition was not only for fun, we were competing for an Aeropress
. Aeropress is a fun, fast way to brew a cup of coffee that not many of us own, so the competition was fierce. We ran this competition head-to-head style, with two baristas steaming and pouring at once, with the better pour moving ahead to the next level. Think college sports brackets, but with milk, and you have the right idea.
State State veteran barista Benn Bartishevich took home the grand prize. He's always pushing the limit to learn new latte art tricks, and it was his creativity that won him the competition. Congratulations Benn! Keep an eve out for stunning art from this guy next time you are in our state street store. He keeps turning out beautiful drinks.
