The A&E Custom Coffee Roastery in Amherst is hosting a latte art throwdown. We decided to learn more about how latte art is made and judged.
Sam Delay really knows his coffee.
“This espresso that we’re using is our bonbon espresso blend.”
Delay is a trainer and wholesale account manager at A&E. And, as a barista, he puts a lot of pride in his art, describing the exact weight of the coffee grounds, the time it takes to pour, the volume of a double-shot and so on.
“Mugs that are very good for pouring art have a very curved bottom.”
