Become the Isle of Man’s first Latte Art Champion!

Do you think you’ve got what it takes to become the Isle of Man’s first ‘Latte Art Champion’?

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a barista artist, then you may be able to take the crown!

At Cycle 360, we take coffee very seriously and we know our customers do too. That’s why we are giving you the chance to show off your skills in the Island’s first home Latte Art Championships.

Why we hear you ask?!

To be crowned with kudos AND win a year’s supply of coffee of course!

Sign me up, how do I enter?!

The first round will take place via Instagram using the hashtag #360latteartchampion, so we can find your masterpiece, and please also tag @cycle360isleofman, so we get notified!

SO, it’s as simple as that – to be crowned the Cycle 360 Latte Art Champ for 2022, and win a year’s supply of coffee*, all you have to do is…

  1. Take a picture of your best latte art creation and post it on your Instagram story or post.

    All entries have to be done on a domestic coffee machine, and not on a commercial coffee shop machine.  However, this doesn’t mean professional baristas cannot enter, they just need to create their art at home on their personal machine!}

  2. Include the hashtag #360latteartchampion and tag us @Cycle360IsleofMan
  3. Send us a direct message of the image too, including your full name. This allows us to view it even if you have a private account.

A heads up… we can spot the cheaters from a mile off!

This means no stencils can be used and images have to be your own work – we will check!

Once we have enough entries in, our Head Barista, Dan, will vote for the top 3!

He will be looking for:

  • Contrast
  • Creativity
  • Symmetry 

The three finalists will then be invited to attend our in-house final AT Cycle 360. Here you can LEARN what it takes to become a barista!

What happens if I’m amazing enough to become a finalist?! We hear you ask!

  • At the Latte Art Championship final, you will be given an introduction on how to use the Lamborghini of coffee machines… 
  • As this is a latte art championship and NOT a barista championship, Cycle 360 trained baristas will steam the milk for you to ensure it’s the perfect temperature and consistency
  • You will then make your most creative latte art design and present it to our panel of independent adjudicators who will vote for a winner!

A reminder of why you absolutely should take part…

Well, apart from owning the official title of the Isle of Man’s Latte Art Champion, you’ll also win a year’s supply of coffee! 

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Entries are now open!  Get practising, get posting AND tagging to be in with a chance of becoming Cycle 360’s Latte Art Champion!
