Thanks to our incredible sponsors, the event felt like a mini coffee festival, and the huge crowd was attracted to the throwdowns, fluffy corner, and the artistic championship, of course. All coffee tastes were covered with delicious filter coffee and oat milk pouring. The competitors’ creative control of milk wizardry weaving stories and contrast in the cup was next level.

Massive thanks to our sponsors, judges, volunteers, spectators, and supporters!
