Instagram Latte Art Throw Down


Post a picture of your best pour from the day anytime between 12AM and 11:59PM every day from Monday 12/8 to Friday 12/12, and tag @nashvillecoffeecollective and #NCClatteartthrowdown. Our judges will pick the top five pours from that day and post them to the Nashville Coffee Collective Instagram account the following day. The pour that receives the most likes by midnight will be the daily winner. On Sunday we will regram the five winners for the final round. Whoever receives the most likes on the final round will be our grand prize winner.

You be the Judge

Remember to judge based on aesthetic beauty/balance/symmetry, definition, contrast, and creativity. For more information on these categories, check out this article.


Your picture must have the date visible somewhere in the shot.
You can only submit one pour each day, so make it your best one.
You must currently be residing in Middle Tennessee to win.
Free pours only this time.


Thank you so much to our sponsors for making this possible, and for contributing some awesome prizes!
