Taree’s Deepti Chowdhary has returned from the International Latte Art Championships with 3rd place.
Taking place on the Gold Coast, Deepti took part in a showdown of barista and latte art talent at the RFG Franchise Expo against contestants from as far as the United States.
“I was up against some pretty hot competition as RFG owns a variety of franchises, including Donut King, Brumby's Bakery, Michel's Patisserie, bb's café, Esquires, The Coffee Guy, Cafe2U, Pizza Capers Gourmet Kitchen and Crust Gourmet Pizza franchise system,” Deepti said.
“Judging was tough with one technical judge and two sensory judges demanding to produce six drinks in 10 minutes with just five minutes preparation time.”
According to BeanScene Magazine in the latte art section, ‘it was another clean sweep for Gloria Jean’s Coffees’.
Brooke Kilpatrick won first place, followed by Steven Li in second place and Deepti Chowdhary in third place.
