    Dont worry about it. There is usually very little good coffee at Celebrate the Bean. If you want to taste great coffee, youre better off just visiting the best cafes.

    Cheers,

    True, but last year was a great chance to meet up with some fellow CSers and see the CoffeeSnobs tent in all its glory.
    Some of us even managed to embarass ourselves in the Home Barista competition.
    Ah well, Eloise is still wearing the crocs!
