IRVING PARK — With coffee as their canvas, baristas have raised painting with cream to an art form.

They'll have a chance to show off their best rosettas, tulips and hearts during a latte art throwdown Friday at the newly opened Coffee Joint, 2059 W. Irving Park Road.

Sign-up will take place from 7-8 p.m., with the friendly competition getting underway at 8 p.m. The entry fee is $5, which will be pooled into a winner's pot.

Amateurs are invited to participate as well, as long as they have experience operating a manual espresso machine and are confident pouring latte art, organizers said.

Spectators are welcome.
