Watch the Froth, ‘Cause This Latte Art Throwdown on Monday in Palm Springs is About to Get Heated

These Pros Are Going Head to Head, Cappuccino Style

Written By: Charlotte Farrell Latte Art Palm Springs

Coffee aficionados know that the joy they get from their morning jolt at their favorite corner coffee shop goes far beyond a dose of caffeine. At the right spot, you are presented with a small, frothy masterpiece. I’ve seen shapely birds, layered hearts, a smiley face and even my own gorgeous mug delicately painted with the flick of a wrist onto that tiny canvas. But the question is, when it comes to latte art, who is the Da Vinci and who is the Picasso?

On Monday, July 16 at 6 p.m., experience a Latte Art Throwdown via Ernest Coffee on North Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs. The spot will set the stage for these artists to perform for the masses, showing who is the best of the best when it comes to these miraculously milk-based—or almond milk, if you prefer—creations. It’s the first time they’ve hosted an event of this café-caliber, and you won’t be disappointed.

Coffee connoisseurs will come from far and wide to show off their skills, with first, second and third place winners getting a piece of $500, and a free night at the neighboring Arrive Palm Springs as their prize. If you feel like your creative streak goes beyond a paintbrush, try your luck with a cup. If you have what it takes, the entry fee is $20, and if you don’t go home with the big win, the least you will get is some major bragging rights and super sweet Insta pics. #itsabrewtifulday. #notyouraveragejoe. #caffeineoclock.

For the rest of us, the event is 21 and over, and onlookers can gawk at matcha latte or mocha marvels for free. See you there!
