2016 Dutch Latte Art - The Finalists - Nick Vink

Early 2016 seven gifted latte art pouring baristas will fight for the ticket to Shanghai, where the World Championship will take place. Who are the baristas that want to represent the Netherlands? Let's get to know them a little better...We met Nick Vink last year, when he became the Dutch Champion. He is back defending it title again this year. Has anything changed?

Where can people find you?

H32 in Oss.

What figures did you pour for the qualifying rounds?

I made a rose, and an inverted tulip.

How did you prepare?

I trained a lot at H32, just practise runs over and over again.

Who inspires you when deciding what figures to pour?

I get inspired of the Internet in general.

How long does it take to learn a new figure?

I would say maybe one, maybe two days...

And how do you master a new figure?

The most important thing is to really challenge yourself. Step out of your comfort zone and do something completely different.

How are you going to make sure you win the National competition?

You can never sure that you are going to win the National Championships. But I train a lot and I'm going to challenge myself to do new things.

If you could change the Latte Art Championship format, what would you change?

if i could change something, it would be that we need to do the Art Bar on the National level! Then you can get used to the Art Bar. And you know what to expect on a World Cup when you win the National competition.

Anything you would like to add?

Ni hao (-_-)
