Latte art is a method of preparing coffee by pouring microfoam into a shot of espresso in a way that it forms a certain pattern or design on the surface. Doing this only requires mastering the basic barista skills to ensure that the espresso is good and the microfoam is silky smooth. But, imagine doing the same blindfolded?
Yes, you heard it right. We are talking about the blindfold latte art challenge and the picture below will give you an idea of what we are talking about.
The Blindfold Latte Art Challenge, as the name suggests, is the method of creating a perfect latte art on a cappuccino with a blindfold. The machines that are used for this challenge are grinders and Rancilio’s semi-automatic machines.
While the Blindfold Latte Art Challenge had taken the coffee world by storm it was not a big trend in India. Our team at Kaapi Machines too was unaware of it until the day our team discovered this video on the internet.
The video caught our attention, so our trainers decided to take up the challenge. There on, our team of trainers started creating a series of similar videos. The videos were uploaded on the internet while tagging the barista community throughout the journey.
At Kaapi Machines, we believe that a lot goes into the making of a perfect cup of coffee right from the quality and freshness of the coffee beans to the consistency of the grounds to the precision in time and temperature control and everything in between.
The Blindfold Latte Art Challenge comes across to us as an opportunity to address the rift that India is facing when it comes to providing efficient and sophisticated coffee equipment, which can reconstruct the superior quality of homegrown coffee beans into the perfect cup of brewed coffee.
Furthermore, since the Blindfold Latte Art Challenge demands the right conditions and temperature for your brew to be perfect, our wide range of coffee equipment and accessories from leading international brands aims to deliver just that. Are you ready for the Blindfold Latte Art Challenge? Share your experience with us. You can check out some of the interesting “Blindfold Latte Art Challenge” videos on the @indianbaristacommunity, where our Indian baristas are showcasing their latte art skills.
