The “Latte Art Grading System” is a series of qualifications to assess the technical skills and creativity of baristas (servers in coffee shops) in latte art.
The system is based on 5 levels or grades, each with a different colour as indicated by the grading system logo: white, orange, green, red and black.
Each grade corresponds to specific skills the barista must have acquired and be able to demonstrate during the grading exam.
Our Coffee Studio is the only training center allowed to award LAGS certifications in Milan and the surrounding province.
This hands-on, 100% practical course is intended to give the participants an opportunity to fully focus on their latte art skills.
Once students have mastered the correct milk steaming, the course gets straight into the practical, covering etching and free pouring techniques.
Led by the 2014 vice-world champion Chiara Bergonzi, participants will learn how to perform various patterns, starting from the basic ones, such as the heart, tulip and rosetta to the most complex designs like reverse, swans, and maybe even a lion.
