When Dalla Corte debuted its EVO2 Blackboard Espresso Machine, we simultaneously swooned and smacked our head in a why-didn’t-I-think-of-that way. It’s absolutely brilliant ”and we don’t throw that word around lightly.
Baristas are creative by nature, so giving them a surface on which to design, doodle, imagine, and create in the form of an erasable blackboard surface on the side of a boutique Dalla Corte espresso machine was nothing less than a stroke of genius.
Not only can baristas create works of art on the side of the machine, they can list the cafe’s daily food specials, coffee promotions, or even the name of the barista on bar that day.
To draw attention to the coolness that is Dalla Corte’s EVO2 Blackboard Espresso Machine, Dalla Corte has announced that it will host an art contest in its booth, #8041, during SCAA in Seattle called “Make It Your Own.”
Eight artists will compete during the SCAA show to create the most imaginative artwork on the machine. Artists may sign up for 2.5-hour timeslots HERE.
The winner will receive $500 and have his or her creation featured in Barista Magazine. Questions? Contact Tom Rolleri at firstname.lastname@example.org.
