Califia x Gregorys Almond Milk Only Throwdown

Califia x Gregorys Almond Milk Only Throwdown

August 30, 2017

 We teamed up with our friends at Califia Farms to throw a Califia Barista Blend 'almond milk only' latte art throwdown. A “latte art throwdown”, an event coined in the specialty coffee community simply defined, is a head-to-head competition where baristas free-pour lattes and are judged based on technical and aesthetic criteria. Each round two baristas compete and the winner moves on to the next round until there is one final winner. Throwdowns are always exciting, action-packed and challenging for our team, and this one did not disappoint.
