Get ready to be vowed and entertained
Cheer on your favourite baristas and get ready to be vowed and entertained by the best baristas in town. You'll see latte art you never thought possible.

Try your hand at latte art
Take part in 30-minute hands-on workshops and demonstrations. The pros will teach you the techniques and skills behind jaw-dropping latte art. With a rotating cast of baristas, pop back as many times as you like to learn different skill sets, from coloured latte art to flying phoenixes. The Cape Town Coffee Festival 2019 line-up included daily coaching sessions by world famous barista Dritan Alsela.
