Meet our Meadow Fresh Latte Art Sponsors & Venue Host!
Event Date: 23rd April, 2017
Please take a moment to get acquainted with the Meadow Fresh New Zealand Latte Art sponsors whose bold and generous support make the event possible.
Official Milk Sponsor
At Meadow Fresh we love coffee. Our milk is used to make over 80 million coffees a year so we have felt a strong responsibility to support New Zealand’s coffee industry. We have proudly sponsored the New Zealand Latte Art Champs since its inception, and are excited to this year come on board as naming rights sponsor of the New Zealand Barista Champs as well.
And because we love coffee so much, we are really excited that our new Meadow Fresh No Added Permeate milk is less processed, making milk steaming a dream and resulting in a seriously good cup of coffee!
We wish all competitors the best of luck, and look forward to seeing you at the champs.
Julia, Kate, Brian, and the Meadow Fresh Team

Mike & the team at Espresso Mechanics
Official Coffee Sponsor
Orb was born from the masterminds of New Zealand’s coffee experts – master roasters, technical experts and passionate coffee enthusiasts. We weren’t conjured up from the tight-jeaned, bearded, creative hipsters looking for a new business idea. We were created by those who were obsessive about the science behind the craft. The obsession of the perfect brew. Maybe that’s why we’ve won the Supreme Award. Twice.
We’re proud to support The New Zealand Latte Art Championships and Coffee industry that we get such a kick out of.
Hilary, Scott & the Orb team
Official Grinder Sponsor
“Everything for a great cup of coffee…except the beans!”
By now you will hopefully know AMC Roastery Supply as the place to get your Mahlkoenig, Ditting and Anfim grinders, thanks to our long-standing sponsorship of the New Zealand Coffee Championships. But did you know that our parent company is a third generation family-owned business that was first registered in 1950 by Alec Clubb, a canny ex-pat Scot who began importing coffee equipment in the 1960’s?
And did you also know that AMC Roastery Supply is the place to go for Diedrich coffee roasters, Actionpac packaging scales, and Fetco filter brewers? In each of the different equipment segments we supply, we have set about securing what we believe to be the best performing equipment brands in each of those segments. We try to sell solutions, not headaches.
So, if you need to “Roast It, Pack It, Grind It, or Brew It” you should give Emma, Dave or Greg a call. Go on, you know you want to!
