A Bit bigger than last year, I don’t think it will be held elsewhere next year though. I had a good time than last year as I went there with things to do,not much in the way of decaf again despite my pleas on twitter, which was a bit disappointing. I met Brian of Brian coffee spot again & got him to sign a copy of his book, called ‘A philosophy of Coffee’
I bought back Five of bags of Beans this year, only 1 decaf this year (Taylor st Baristas again, Girls who Grind Coffee, Small batch Coffee, Origin (Decaf) & a Chinese Coffee from Grumpy Mule which had been put aside especially for me!! The rest of the stuff I got were freebies or came included in the admission price.
I would say 3 hours is more than enough for a visit, though I have heard you can stay all day. (It gets very busy, noisy & hot) I would say to anyone who is new to taking drinking coffee seriously, its a good day out. You need to get there early though as the queues are manic & the good stuff goes quickly, though they have sorted out a better entrance so people don’t have to queue for too long.
I took even more photos than I have done in previous years, see below.
When I came out of there, my head was compared with the last 3 years, that was due to me alternating decaf & normal coffees. In the future I plan on taking my sister & her son, I must be mad….
