UK’s top latte art baristas compete in sustainable smackdown
September 11, 2019
The Detpak RecycleMe™ UK Smackdown Champion title was taken out by underdog, Kunthea Seng, at the launch event hosted in partnership with Taylor St Baristas.
Launching the RecycleMe™ cups into the UK market with a bang, the packed timetable of 32 entries at Detpak's first UK smackdown made for fierce competition between some of the nation’s top baristas.
Current UK Latte Art Champion, Will Pitts, who left the comp in the quarter finals said, “it takes a particular kind of barista to do well in competitions, they devote a lot of time to it and I think it showed tonight, especially the final, they were almost perfect.”
Supported by the Agent General of South Australia and fellow SA businesses, Coopers beer and Alpha Box & Dice wine, the event recognised early adopters of RecycleMe™ cups in the UK including Caravan, Taylor St, Prufrock and Colonna & Smalls.
