The quest for the best latte artist in the metro commenced at Sheraton Manila Bay as they held the first-ever inter-school Latte Art Throwdown Manila Competition at &More by Sheraton on November 26, 2022. The Latte Art Throwdown Manila aims to create a platform for student baristas to showcase their latté art skills and to establish &More by Sheraton as the premier coffee authority in Manila. The competition was made possible with the collaboration of &More by Sheraton, Allegro Beverage, Oatside, MilkLab, and Pukaw Coffee Tools.
Student baristas from Lyceum of The Philippines Manila (Christian Mitch Ricafort), Jose Rizal University (Jason Trono), Enderun Colleges (Marianne Antonette Zamudio), and Philippine School of Business Administration (Godwin Arellano) competed for the championship. A select panel of judges composed of Ulyssa Visda of Allegro Beverage, Shamgar Braza of Pukaw Coffee Tools, and Saudi Latte Art Competition Gold Medalist Jose Lozano III scored the latte art creations based on visual attributes, creativity, aesthetic balance, contrast in patterns, and mastery of pour.
Competing against various schools, Godwin Arellano of the Philippine School of Business Administration stands triumphant as he bags the Championship for the competition. He took home the prestigious Manila Latte Art Trophy along with a certificate for Pre-Dinner cocktail for two (2) persons at Pacific Lounge and a 2-day personalized coffee training with &More by Sheraton Coffee Master Ronnie Sararana.
