That should be Coffee, Tea, or meh.
I shouldn’t be too harsh about the event because, overall, it was fun, well-attended, and had a lot of stalls selling coffee, tea, chai, food and cupcakes. Lots of cupcakes. It was just very similar to last year’s festival (see what I did here), with the now-famous coffee picture providing the main point of difference.
So here are some pictures of what I did – arrived earlyish to avoid the crowds (and take advantage of the sunny morning), drank a coffee, ate some lunch, steered clear of camel poo, and gawped at the coffee picture.
Above: I had a long black coffee from Vella Nero (good service despite a 15 min wait for the coffee because the machines were down); lots of biscuit and cake stalls; need to start them young with the caffeine habit
Above: In the camel precinct - "coffee festival? what coffee festival?" - these guys were more interested in the sports pages; lunch was from the Dim Sum Station (average dumplings and awful duck bun); guy in a fez watching the Turkish entertainment; fabulous baklava, so moist yet not too sweet (but I've forgotten the name of the company!)
And onto the coffee picture - this year, it was of Marilyn Monroe.
There was a crowd eager for the final cups to be placed:
Ta-Dah! Well done!
Some like it hot.
The Rocks Aroma Festival was held on Sunday 25th July 2010 in Sydney.
