Coffee In Good Spirits Competition & 2019 Latte Art Nationals
12:00PM-4:00PM

The Canadian Chapter of the Specialty Coffee Association is excited to announce that the National Competitions for Coffee In Good Spirits and Latte Art will be held at RC Show 2018 on February 25 - 27 at the Enercare Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

Coffee In Good Spirits is a fun competition that rewards barista/mixologist creativity by asking competitors to produce an alcohol-based coffee drink. This will be the first such competition ever held in Canada. The preliminary round takes place on Feb. 25, with the final round on Feb. 27.

In the competition format, competitors are required to produce two sets of drinks - the first being their take on Irish Coffee, and the second being their own choice using Kavi Reserve.

The Latte Art competition rewards the barista’s technical pouring skills when making a milk-based coffee beverage. This will be the second such competition held in Canada, the first being in Vancouver three years ago. The preliminary round takes place on Feb. 26, with the final round on Feb. 27, directly after the Coffee In Good Spirits Final.

Competitors are required to make six drinks - two sets of matching free-pour lattes and one set of matching designer patterns.
In both competitions, Mike Strumpf, Director of Coffee for Swiss Water Decaf and WCE-sanctioned judge, will be the head judge on the panel.
