Nationwide Baristas’ Quest Invades Baguio!

This is my second time to cover a Latte Art Showdown and I observed that the participants really showed their love for the craft of Latte Art. The competition was fierce because skilled baristas showed what it takes to be the best Latte Art master. 

Baristas and coffee enthusiasts across Northern Luzon are in for a thrill as Baristas’ Quest conquers Baguio City in the next leg of Baristas’ Quest—with the Latte Art Throwdown.

Participants from Baguio City and neighboring provinces joined in this cupping event. Artists who can create designs using milk joined this Coffee + Art: Latte Art Throwdown held at Halfroom Coffee in Baguio City.

The participants of the Baristas Quest

Baristas’ Quest is a month-long campaign of competitions created to empower and promote camaraderie amongst Filipino baristas and coffee enthusiasts, and to showcase their skills in making coffee. The first leg of the competition took place in Davao and the final one will be held in Cebu City.
