A good coffee drink is a work of art.
The owners of Captain + Stoker coffeeshop near downtown Monterey thought so enough to hold their first latte art competition on July 19.
About 60 people watched 22 baristas from Monterey Peninsula cafes squared off to pour a variety of designs in the latte foam, including intricate leaves and hearts. Three judges gathered around the black porcelain cups and voted as aesthetics of the perfectly poured drinks.
Captain + Stoker says they plan to make it an annual event.
