After 11 years of competing, a Thai barista has been named world latte art champion. 
Yesterday (Jun 15) at the World of Coffee event in Budapest, Hungary, Thai barista Arnon Thitiprasert took top honors in the 2017 World Latte Art Championship. 
Based in Chiang Mai, Arnon owns the popular Ristr8to cafe, renowned for its latte art and as one of the pioneering third-wave coffee shops in the North
Having placed first in Thailand from 2015-2017, #6 in the world in 2011 and #5 in the world in 2015, Arnon has now made it to the top this year.
Arnon previously perfected his coffee credentials on the notoriously caffeine-snooty streets of Sydney, where he won several coffee-making awards.
