Event description

Description

To celebrate the opening of our brand new cafe at Riduna Park in Melton, we're hosting a MASSIVE latte-art throwdown! La Marzocco UK, Schluter Coffee and Butterworth & Son are all on board and it's shaping up to be quite the event, with cash prizes for winners and goodies galore for the rest!

Our epic guest judges for the evening will be:

Dhan Tamang - Reigning UK Latte Art Champion

Estelle Bright - LMUK

Howard Barwick - Schluter


My own personal answer to the "why don't you get a real job" dinner discussion, Howard Barwick (Schluter), will also be saying a few words on the night so even if you're not a barista but just love good coffee, this is one for you!

Our ridiculouosly talented chefs are making burgers all night (don't worry vegans, we've got your back) and as usual our bar will be fully stocked with Calvors beers.

Spectator entry is FREE - but do jump on the guest list before the 12th of November, and we'll shout you a beer on arrival!

Competitor Entry is £5 which we will match and donate to our mates at Coffee Kids. All competitors will receive a free beer and a handshake on arrival!


PRIZES

FIRST - £200 CASH

SECOND - £100 CASH

There will also be loads of sexy prizes for competitiors from our generous sponsors Butterworth & Son and La Marzocco UK, and beers from Calvors Brewery.


The competition layout is fairly classic FREE POUR ONLY. 1-on-1 heats with latte-art dice selecting the pattern. You'll be allowed two pours within the allotted time frame, of which you will select your best to hand to our esteemed panel for judging. You'll be using our La Marzocco Linea Minis, feel free to bring your own jugs if you're attached: we will have a range supplied otherwise. This is an instant death competition and the judges say is final. (The bar will be open all night just in case sorrows need to be drowned.) We're using ACME round-bottomed 8oz latte cups for the competition, but we will have a few smaller cups floating around to add some pressure in the unlikely event of a tie-break situation.

Entries for competitors and our guest list close on the 12th, but anyone and everyone should come along for some fun on the night!


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This event will be held in a licenced bar, so anybody under the age of 18 must be accompnied by a responsible adult. There will be no alcohol served to anybody under the age of 18, and as with our notoriously strict policy on underage drinking, anybody drinking on the evening who fails to produce valid ID/proof of age when asked will be ejected from the premises.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is ample parking at our melton cafe as we are located on the Riduna Park office site.

Melton train station is located directly accross the road from us and runs a direct service to Ipswich Station where connections to most other destnations can be made.

Please check local public transport options before the event to find out which services are running from your area.

What can I bring into the event?

Nothing. Competitors should feel free to bring thier own milk jugs if they would like, but we will provide every thing else (including our own jugs for those who would rather attend without luggage).

We'll be collecting spare change for Coffee Kids on the night, so empty your money boxes and bring some coins in to throw in the bucket.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Carmen can be reached directly at carmen@honeyandharvey.co.uk

What's the refund policy?

There will be absolutely no refunds of entry money if you are unable to attend on the night: as far as we're concerned that donation belongs to Coffee Kids the instant it leaves your bank account. We will still match it ourselves for the charity.
