An expo for caf-fiends

This event has finished

Caffeine fiends, rev your coffee grinder engines for 8000 square metres of coffee tradeshow action at Australia’s biggest coffee expo ever. Entry is free for those in the trade, but any (cuppa) Joe can try out the latest and greatest beans. Forget long blacks: it's all about siphon, cold drip, and pour-over coffee. If you think you're a dab hand at a home-made cappucino, watch in awe as the best baristas face off in the World Barista Championships and the World Brewers Cup that are being hosted in Melbourne for the very first time.

In a pretty great initiative, KeepCup will be offering a free cup washing station to help reduce rubbish and raise awareness for sustainability. They'll also be donating 10 cents for every cup washed to Coffee Kids, a charity that seeks to improve conditions for families in coffee communities around the world. So BYO cup. Otherwise you're a double jerk.
