            CSrs are invited to a special treat at the Melbourne BeanBay pickup this Saturday...

            Erin will be doing one of her final run-throughs before heading over to Germany and welcomes a crowd of CSrs to help create the atmosphere of competition.

            You will get to see her actual performance on the competition spec Dalla Corte machine.

            The only gotcha is that there are no cameras or discussion of the actual latte art or performance specifics on CS. Obviously we need to keep Erins routine secret until after the World Latte Art comp in Germany.

            Where: Veneziano - Abbotsford.
            When: Saturday 20th June, 11am

            Bring: A clap and a cheer of encouragement.

                    Herald Sun Thursday June 18 2009- page 20 Confidential. Article titled "Blues score a latte winner". Great photo of Erin Sampson with Jarrad Waite of Carlton Football Cub. Erin is practicing her latte art for the World Chamionships by pouring a Carlton logo on top of the footballers skinny lattes. How good is that? Good Luck Erin. Herbie
