The final of the Italian Latte Art Grading championship is upon us! On Sunday 24 October 2021, at the Altoga Coffee Village (Pavilion 22 – HostMilano) the international Lags (Latte Art Grading System) judges will nominate the best baristas in creating the patterns as required by the competition regulations.
This year, competition after competition, the most expert baristas in Latte Art have been selected on 4 levels as required by the Lags disciplinary
But what exactly is the “Latte Art Grading System”?
What is it about
The Latte Art Grading System is the system that certifies the level of ability of baristas, from a technical and creative point of view, on the decoration of cafeteria drinks using the Latte Art technique.
Worldwide, the system is structured in 4 progressive levels called "grading" , each characterized by a different color (which reflect those of the logo): green, red, black and gold . Each level evaluates a specific ability to create a series of complex decorative figures in the cup.
Every barista with professional latte art knowledge can participate. However, only the most expert baristas will be included in the Latte Art Grading register. The best baristas receive an official certificate, the Latte Art Grading Certificate.
Who will dominate the stage of the Second Italian Latte Art Grading Championship ? The day following October 24, the winners of the national team will compete for the WLAGS Battle, the second edition of the world championship.
