  • Ivy with the trophy
Congratulations to our head trainer  Ivy Lai for winning  the New York Coffee Fest Latte Art ChampionCoffeeFest Latte Art Championship Open is one of the biggest Latte Art competition in the world.  Ivy had been competing in the Latte Art world for a few years, and she had spent much time in preparation for this competition.  Coffee Fest Latte Art competition is different in their competition format where 2 person battle one on one vs each other and advance based on different criteria.  Ivy battled some heavy competition including the legendary Junichi Yamaguchi.   It was a very memorable Journey and Ivy will be heading 18 Grams in-house Training and hosting some Coffee Class in the near future.

恭喜 Ivy Lai 首次贏得美國紐約 Coffee Fest  咖啡拉花公開比賽冠軍,為香港咖啡人爭光。Coffee Fest 拉花比賽方式同其他拉花比賽有少少分別是用上單對單(PK) 方式比賽。今次Ivy抽籤時居然要對上日本名咖啡師山口 淳一。幸好Ivy狀態不錯,憑佢嘅實力同運氣贏得比賽冠軍。Ivy 以後都會專注於18 Grams 做 in-house 員工培訓,同會舉辦多一些分享會同一些唔同程度嘅咖啡班,希望將精品咖啡普及化。

New SCAA flavor wheel

Written by admin. Posted in 18 Grams, Coffee Talk


As most coffee professionals know we all use the flavor wheel to communicate among our peers. Today SCAA has announced a new version of the flavor wheel. Everyone had made their own version of the flavor wheel to add what they think is missing in some of the tasting flavors that we can find in coffee now. Counter culture had their own one. This new one will sure shed new lights into our world of specialty coffee.
