    Darby Street Coffee Festival June 5th

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just a quick note for my fellow Novocastrians. As the subject line suggests, the Darby Street Coffee Festival is on again Sunday the 5th of June between 10am and 4pm.

    I went last year and it wasnt too exciting. Whilst its no Celebrate the Bean or Aroma Festival, its better than nothing at all, and if it is a nice sunny day I cant think of a better way to spend the afternoon.

    It is the day after I get married and my soon to be wifes birthday, so I might not get to spend as much time there as Id like :(

    Without getting the rubber chickens out I cant think of a way for local CSs to recognise each other. Ill just listen for questions about naked PFs and roast profiles ;)

    Sounds like a great place to start your honeymoon ::)

    I can lend you a rubber chicken too.

    Darby Street Coffee Festival June 5th - photo

    Not quite sure why they call it a "coffee festival", really. *
    Beautiful day. *Lots of arty crafty stuff and cafes and shops selling their wares. The usual crystals and dodgy art work. ::)

    Very busy ( as the photo shows) and a fun day. *Anyone would have enjoyed it as long as they werent expecting a serious coffee focus.
    Looking forward to my first Beanfest in Sydney next year!!

    Yeah it could have been called the Darby Street Market Day or something similar... :(

    Barely a coffee focus really, unless you count that coffee flavoured milk stand. Dare espresso I think?

    Danes, Suspension, PeaBerrys, Belaroma, were the main coffee companies with a presence on the day.

    I was geeky enough to be wearing an alt.coffee t-shirt and be carrying not one but 2 tampers around with me :(

    I did catch up to a couple of coffee people but other than that it was a bust.

    Aroma Festival is coming up. It should be much better, but I think Ill leave the tampers at home for that one :)
