Combining coffee & art for the Locale Art Project


If you’re a fan of coffee and art, it’s worth taking a look at the entries of the Locale Art Project, which was held for the first time this year.

Locale Coffee Company launched the Locale Art Project where coffee lovers were invited to create artworks using a single and double shot of coffee. Due to the overwhelming amount of entries they received, the idea is out there to make it an annual event.

My favourite picture of the exhibition. Amazing detail, I can’t believe it’s been painted with coffee.

Held nationwide, coffee outlets that serve Locale Coffee supplied budding artists a pack containing brushes and parchment. Photographs of work were then uploaded onto social media using #localeartproject. The results from the top 18 from Western Australia are nothing short of amazing.



Making the perfect cup of coffee is an art form in itself, so it was only fitting for`the Locale Art Project to hold their Perth exhibition at Arthouse Dine in the Art Gallery of Western Australia. The area is spacious and contemporary and had lots of natural light flooding the space.


As a tea fan myself, I felt obligated to try a coffee so I ordered a latte. Oooo I think I’ve been converted. Made using Locale Espresso which sources it’s coffee beans from all over the world, they claim the finest beans are harvested and blended to create a distinctive and lively tasting experience you’ll want again and again. It was creamy and smooth to drink. I certainly felt the caffeine work it’s magic on me after a not so great night’s sleep.


This latte is almost too pretty to drink


The morning tea provided by Arthouse Dine. Everything tasted as good as it looks.

The prize for Australia’s first ever espresso art competition is impressive and valued at almost $5000. It includes a six-month supply of Locale Coffee and a La Marzocco Mini coffee machine in matte black.

I love socialising and eating so if I can combine the two, it’s a match made in heaven. Always like to try somewhere new but can’t beat eating Vietnamese or Japanese food at a local haunt. I’m excited to explore more of what Perth has to offer and will base my reviews on food, service and the atmosphere of a restaurant.
