October 7 - 9, 2022 / Metropolitan Pavilion
Latte Art Live


You’ve seen them on Instagram, and now they are at work right in front of you. Phoenix, rosetta or swan; you name it, the legends will pour it.

Latte Art Live is back, with the world’s best baristas set to pour the unimaginable. Expect a series of throw downs, showcases and hands-on workshops at The New York Coffee Festival.

Here's what will go down: 

Witness incredible throwdowns
Cheer on your favourite baristas in epic throwdowns at the legendary Latte Art Live area. New York's top baristas will compete for massive prizes and you'll see latte art you never thought possible. 

Try your hand at latte art
Take part in 35-minute hands-on workshops where the pros will teach you the techniques and skills behind jaw-dropping latte art. With a rotating cast of baristas, pop back as many times as you like to learn different skill sets, from colored latte art to flying phoenixes. 

Join the judging panel
If you've never seen the pros go head-to-head in a big throwdown before, now is the time. The baristas will bring charisma, showmanship and entertainment to the stage in these high-octane throwdowns, and it's YOU who votes at the end to determine the champion. 

2022 Programme coming soon.
