Latte art, latte art, latte art ”all I’ve been hearing about is latte art lately ”and that’s totally cool! Sure, there are a gazillion fun and interesting things about coffee besides latte art. But there’s totally nothing wrong with loving latte art, using throwdowns as a way to make friends and grow your local community, and involve your customers in the artistic process of great coffee making. We love latte art!

In fact, Barista Magazine just signed on to be the **Official Media Sponsor of the World Latte Art Championship** (not to mention the World Coffee In Good Spirits Championship, but we’ll talk about that later). Whaaaa-hoooo! That’s how much we love latte art, and the people who DO latte art even more.

Brandon’s goal when starting out was 100 cups in 2 weeks, he said he would have to average 6-7 cups daily. However some days his stomach would hurt and he would have to drink less that day and make up for it the next. From my understanding the goal of 100 was not verified as reached in the article, it does however suggest that he did it. And may I say–OUCH!

Justin Enis – USA

Virgil Hovar, USA

Brandon’s goal was 100 cups of coffee.

From reading the article I don’t believe he ever commited that he actually did accomplish the goal. He tells that he needed to average 6-7 cups a day to make his goal and that some days he was short so he had to overcaffinate the following day. Sarah presented a question as if he had, indeed, made his goal of 100 cups of coffee but I don’t see elsewhere in the article that he actually stated he was successful.

SPOILER ALERT-If you actually watch the videos you will see that he actaully only drinks 88 cups “on the road” and downs the remaining 12 once back in LA before actually completing filming of the series.

He drank 100 cups of coffee!
