24 Oct2017 Insomnia’s Latte Art Throw Down 2017
In October 2017 we invited sixteen of Insomnia’s top baristas to come together to compete to become this year's Insomnia’s Latte Art Thrown Down champion. Pouring a good coffee is an art in itself but we challenged our talented baristas to present us with delicious, aromatic coffee with a twist.
Throughout four tough rounds our baristas rose to the occasion and produced some amazing latte art. The pouring rounds included heart, rosetta and tulip art challenges, finishing up with a final freestyling round where the contestants submitted their own creative designs.
Competition was really heating up as our judges had to choose between the top contestants but in the end there can only be one winner! A massive congratulations to our Latte Art Throw Down champion, Mateusz Bielen, from Insomnia Kilkenny, who was the overall winner and walked away with some amazing prizes.
Our top four Latte Art Throw Down contestants were:
- 1st - Mateusz Bielen, Insomnia Kilkenny
- 2nd - Valentina Di Giorgio, Insomnia Head Office
- 3rd - Nileska Romero Vasquez, Insomnia @ Spar Ellis Quay
- 4th - Roxana Nedelca, Insomnia @ Spar Dolphins Barn
Baristas came from Cork, Rathmines, Blackrock, Swords, Drumcondra, Montrose and Dublin City Centre to enter this contest so we want to say a big thank you to all who attended!
