A latte artist from Orange County is savoring her victory at the U.S. Coffee Championships.

Angie Chun, 30, works at the Coffee Code espresso bars in Fullerton and Buena Park, where she literally pours her heart into her work. She won the national title at last month's U.S. Coffee Championships in Long Beach.

Apparently latte artistry is genetic. Her older sister won a latte art championship a couple years ago, and her younger brother came in third in the country at the Long Beach competition.

Angie Chun heads to Sweden in June for the world championship.

"Only one person can participate from each country," she said. "That'll be much harder than the U.S. championship."

Chun makes about 200 cups a day at Coffee Code.
