Event – Dolce Gusto Latte Art | Mike Breach

Last night I had the wonderful opportunity of attending the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Latte Art event with Mike Breach on behalf of Lovilee. The event was held at Urban Tree in Kramerville (A beautiful elegant venue perfect at showcasing the sleek designs of the Dolce Gusto machines). I am a coffee fanatic and feel like life is better with this beautiful liquid. Michael is from New York and started drawing in his cappucinos when he got bored working as a barista at a hotel and has progressed from there.

Michael has an unbelievable artistic talent to draw faces free hand (with his bamboo skewers – weapon of choice) into milky foam. During the evening he drew Madiba, Charlize Theron, 3 people from the audience, my cat Stan (we dubbed that the Cattochino) and a Rhino. Michael had never drawn a Rhino but it turned out unbelievably. During the evening we sipped on the coffees that were produced from these machines. There are 12 flavours including hot chocolate (Mocha), Tea Latte, Cappucino, Americano, Caramel Latte and Latte to name a few. Watching the demonstrators make these coffees it is so easy and the result was very tasty. It was a wonderful event and I was blown away at the pure talent that Michael has to convert a humble cup of coffee into a masterpiece.
