The 2014 Swiss Coffee Championships were held in Zurich last week, and here's a video of eventual Latte Art Champion André Gabriel at work on what proved to be his winning run. It looks stressful: With a giant clock ticking off in the background and a camera in their face, contestants have eight minutes to create three pairs of latte art that identically match a provided sample; they're carefully judged on how closely the foam matches the photos. It's not the most creative latte art task, but the judges were very into it, awarding Gabriel with 493.5 points for the win. Go, watch:
