    Looks cool, but I’m curious… by what criteria is latte art judged?

  2. Congrats Jason!!

    @Denny, below are the criteria for this year’s SWLAC competition. Judges were “dialed in” and calibrated to the same standards before the competition began.

    Competition Grading Criteria:
    1. Aesthetic Beauty
    2) Definition
    3) Color Infusion

    Under each of these criteria there was more specific guidelines and a grading scale.

    Chris, Todd, and Ron — thank you for taking time out of your weekend to judge!
