the first lady of foam

First pizza, now coffee: the 2010 Latte Art Champion of the World is...

Haruna Murayama of Japan, the first Japanese to win the title (it was the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe's sixth annual competition). Contenders from 31 other countries participated in the contest, held in London earlier this summer. An Australian came in second place, a Swede took third. Murayama had to produce six cups in 8 minutes to win. Her signature pattern is that of a drooping willow tree.

I wonder how Hiroshi over at Streamer feels about this.
