Latte art is the flare bartending trick of the coffee world. And sadly, just like those outstanding feats of acrobatic drinksmanship made famous by our favourite Scientologist Tom Cruise in Cocktail, it’s no longer taken as seriously as it once was.

Which makes us all kinds of excited that the World Latte Art Championships are coming to Melbourne during the Melbourne International Coffee Expo next year.
Here’s some sweet latte art in the making to get you revved up.
