World Latte Art Championship results prove that dc campus training “works”: Dalla Corte

The winner of the World Latte Art Championship Christian Ullrich attended pre-competition Dalla Corte training, proving that “the dc campus works”, the company said in a statement on 27 May. Germany's Ullrich, who won the title at the Melbourne International Coffee Expo from 15 – 18 May, took part in three days of preparation held at 'dc loft 127' in Milan, Italy. Dalla Corte, in conjunction with Urnex and Mahlkoenig, hosted national Latte Art and Coffee in Good Spirits champions from around the world in Italy in mid April to take part in practice competitions and seminars. Of the 12 finalists across both competitions, seven had attended the workshops. Dalla Corte has been sponsoring the World Latte Art and World Coffee in Good Spirits championships for seven years. “All this time we have seen the professionals of the two specialties grow: their professionalism has increased and their techniques have spread throughout the world,” said Paolo Dalla Corte, Owner of Dalla Corte along with his sister Elsa, in a statement. “We are happy to have contributed to their growth and fame, as well as to education and training on every aspect of coffee manufacturing and processing, from bean to beverage. Those who love true quality coffee should know we will always be by their side, in a very active way. Congratulations to all.” As part of its sponsorship, Dalla Corte set up its stand with practice stations featuring the dc pro version in Total Black, where finalists could train on the machines ahead of the competition. An additional highlight of the week was a fun latte art smackdown competition held on Friday night during the Melbourne International Coffee Expo, sponsored by Dalla Corte. Baristas from around the world participated for the chance to win around $5000 in a competition called “One shot at the Title”. The six finalists from each competition have been invited by Dalla Corte to the dc campus 2015 that will take place in Sumatra. The campus is part of Dalla Corte's support of a project to protect local orangutans and tropical flora, by supporting sustainable coffee production.
