Sydney July – August 2015 (12 photos)
We are all after that killer (great) taste in coffee, but would you drink coffee that might kill you? It’s a creepy proposition, and logo to match. According to the website of the coffee company depicted above, it’s “…the strongest cup of joe you’ll ever taste in your life… The Killer Coffee Co. endeavors to take caffeine hits to death-defying new levels, featured in this post-blended, small batch of coffee that’s strong enough to wake the dead.”
Would you? That’s a big “no thanks” from me.
Recently the Aroma Festival of Sydney was on for 2015. An annual festival dedicated to coffee. The streets of The Rocks region of Sydney were closed to cars and street stalls set up.
I got there early, and even then I could see that the queues for this Mayan coffee stall were much longer than all others, and this continued throughout the day. A good endorsement. As they have a cafe in Sydney, I by-passed the queue but will go to their shop one day instead. I think the key to this kind of festival is to limit your intake and try new blends you might not get elsewhere. Besides, where else are you going to get quality coffee at about half the usual price? Instead I went to…
The production line of baristas in action.
An interesting way to promote tourism, don’t you think?
Tea drinkers were catered for too. So were the chocolate lovers.
I didn’t know chocolate could be matched to wine. This Adelaide based chocolatier is opening in Sydney. Based on the free samples which I ate plenty of, I’ll be a regular there.
Of course a much more relaxed way to enjoy coffee is at home, or at a cafe. But this event is definitely for me.
“If you build it they will come”
… For the crowds …
“Cool and the gang”
… because I like to watch …
“Love is a cup of coffee in one hand and a phone in the other”
… and I like to shoot people …
“Another one bites the dust”
… especially other photographers.
Bwahahaha!!! Bwahahaha!!! Bwahahaha!!!
