Latte art with a latte heart, that’s what we’re all about here at Sprudge. And there’s a latte art throwdown next week that fits the bill. On Thursday, April 5th in Longmont, Colorado, Ozo Coffee is hosting a latte art throwdown benefitting KGNU Community Radio.

This is the second annual OZO Coffee TNT, but it is the first done in honor of KGNU’s 40th anniversary, and they are pulling out all the stops. For the cost of a $15 buy-in—with the proceeds going to KGNU—participants will receive one pound of Ozo’s KGNU 40th Anniversary Blend and are entered to win tickets to see Vulpeck and Kamasi Washington at Red Rocks, amongst others. You can be the worst at latte art and still win free tickets to see a modern jazz master at the best outdoor venue in America.

And if you happen to also be good at the hearts, stars, and balloons—or whatever it is you crazy kids are pouring these days—prizes for the throwdown include items from Baratza, Topo Designs (America’s colorful answer for Fjallraven), prAna (makers of the Zion stretch, the best pants for climbing), and many, many more. After those resounding endorsements, should a Daypack or cargo green pair of pants—32” inseam—happen to fall before me, I wouldn’t not pick them up is all I’m saying.

There will of course be beer and wine, really good beer and wine (this is Colorado after all), provided by Upslope Brewing Company, Avery Brewing, and Wyatt’s Wet Goods.

The FOMO is strong with this one. It’s going to be a good time for a good cause with a ton of cool prizes. So you should definitely make your way out to Longmont On Thursday. It all gets going at 6:00pm for throwdown sign-ups, with the first milk touching espresso promptly at 7:00pm.
