Baristas and the general public are invited to a free event on Friday, March 2, 2012 at Press Coffee Roasters at Scottsdale Quarter.

Press Coffee is hosting the first latte art competition of 2012 among Arizona coffee houses, and this looks like a great event. Press Coffee has a wonderful environment for a competition like this with lots of counter space, and good visibility.

The competition begins at 7:30 pm – baristas should arrive an hour early. For questions or to RSVP, you should contact Alex Mason.

This location has a beautiful 3-group Synesso espresso machine, which is absolutely awesome.

Latte art throwdowns have become a pretty big thing in Arizona over the last 3-4 years. It seems that every major coffee shop has been hosting them. The most recent one that I attended at Urban Beans, in November, must have had 75 attendees.
