WHAT IS “LATTE ART GRADING”?
The “Latte Art Grading System” is a series of qualifications to assess the technical skills and creativity of baristas (servers in coffee shops) in latte art.
The system is based on 5 levels or grades, each with a different colour as indicated by the grading system logo: white, orange, green, red and black.
Each grade corresponds to specific skills the barista must have acquired and be able to demonstrate during the grading exam.
WHO CAN DO GRADING?
The grading can be done by any barista with a minimum of expertise in latte art techniques and by anyone who works in a café environment – baristas or professionals wishing to enhance their CV.
