The event in my blog was not really a coffee festival. It was a glorified sale by a local Joyce Mayne. Although it was good to have Paul there and get to meet the local roasters, the only machines that were for sale there were the ones they stocked.
There was supposed to be a coffee and chocolate festival in Brisbane in June passed but it did not go ahead due to lack of interest and poor planning. They are hoping to run it next year though.
