So i was kind of waiting to broadcast this information too loudly, but now that it's official, i'm happy to say i'll be representing the US of A in the World Latte Art Championships at the end of this month. I'm very excited, but VERY terrified. Thankfully, two of the best dudes ever, Stephen Morrissey and Michael Phillips, are letting me come up to Chicago this weekend and do a bit of training. Morrissey's WLAC experience will be very invaluable to me as i've only read about the details of this competition a week or so ago. I have yet to do a ful run-through.
The WLAC is quite different from latte art competitions here in the States. There's taste involved and etching... it's nuts.
In any case, I just want to promise you all i will do my best not to embarass myself, Octane, or America.
But really this is all just an excuse for me to have a beer with Colin.
