Riverina Fresh has hosted a latte art masterclass in Sydney to educate home coffee consumers about the importance of milk quality.
ASCA 2017 Australian Barista Champion Runner-Up Shinsaku Fukayama of Sensory Lab ran the barista lesson for competition winners Linda and Matt Hoadley in Sydney on 24 April at Smoking Gun Bagels.
To win the masterclass and La Marzocco Linea Mini prize, Linda and Matt had to purchase and then describe why Riverina Fresh was their favourite milk to use for their daily coffee consumption at home.
Their winning entry highlighted the 94-year-old business, which is supplied by 20 local Riverina Fresh farmers who have dedicated themselves to producing consistent quality milk.
“We’re really thankful to Riverina Fresh for providing us with such a valuable learning experience. I had no idea how much was involved in production a great coffee, nor the physical efforts baristas go through for the perfect cup, or what’s involved in making such silky, smooth coffee like Shin can produce, such as getting the right spin when texturing milk, or listening to the sound,” Linda says.
