Advanced Latte Art Masterclass with Shawn Chen

Not your ordinary latte art class. A rare opportunity to learn from the former head trainer at Taiwan's award-winning Milkglider Latteartist Unity.


  • Demo of advanced shapes by Shawn Chen

  • Pour the perfect winged tulip, rosetta and swan with good contrast and symmetry with coaching by Shawn Chen

This is an advanced class and participants should have prior experience in espresso extraction and milk steaming. Especially useful for those who are looking to make progress with advanced shapes and receive tips on making adjustments to their current method of pour. 


  1. Shawn will be coaching in Mandarin and the class will be facilitated and translated by Bettr Barista's in-house trainers.

  2. Learners are invited to bring their own cups and pitchers to practise with during class.

I had a lot of fun during the training. The trainer was very interactive and was able to spot our mistakes from our pours. With the hands on practice, we were able to understand the techniques and got down to working on our mistakes. I took his training back to my cafe and continued to improve on my pours.

— Alistair Seetho, Barista, One Man Coffee / SLAC 2018 Champion 


Great insights from the expert of free pour latte art. Fantastic trainer who was able to point out mistakes that I did not know.

— Lee Juin Loong, Barista (November 2016)


Thank you Shawn! Really love the way you
teach, your patience and your spirit of excellence too.

— Glen, Owner of Prodigal Roasters
