LAGS - 09/07/2024

On July 7, 2024, Peru hosted one of the most anticipated events in the coffee world: the National Championship of the Latte Art Grading System (LAGS). The @gastromaq_peru fair was the stage for an exceptional competition featuring some of the country’s best baristas, ready to showcase their skills and creativity.

The atmosphere was electric from the start, with an enthusiastic crowd gathering to support the talented baristas: @hidanjc, @christhian_amarillo, @ricardocampean, @santiagotrujillo___, @eizoncobenas, @ezequiel_lescano_moffatt, and @starlyn_martinex. The competition was a series of high-level performances, characterized by increasingly symmetrical and precise designs that left the audience and judges in awe.

The event's success would not have been possible without the contributions of sponsors @grupoastelatam, @gran.pangoa, @gloria_peru, AB Perú, @supremo_qualis, and @axor_peru, who enthusiastically supported the initiative. The LAGS judges @rafael__stein, @martino_2234, and Ignazio performed impeccably, ensuring the highest level of professionalism in evaluating the latte art creations.

A special thanks goes to the art bar baristas @asociacionbaristasartebar for their invaluable support, and to Eleonora, whose boundless cheerfulness made the event even more memorable. We must not forget Vanessa, who meticulously attended to every detail, and Miguel, who expertly captured the images of this extraordinary championship.

The National Latte Art Championship is not only a celebration of technical skill and aesthetics but also a platform to promote local talent. Ignazio, one of the event's main supporters, firmly believed in the potential of Peruvian baristas and worked tirelessly to promote latte art in the country.

The day concluded with the crowning of the champions: Alonso and José. These two extraordinary baristas will represent Peru at the WLAGS 2024 World Cup in Trieste, Italy, bringing with them the pride and excellence of their country.

The event on July 7, 2024, will undoubtedly remain in the memory of all who participated, as a triumph of talent, passion, and creativity in the world of coffee.
