A Double Shot of Fun at Unley Coffee Fiesta!
The Coffee craze has well and truly hit the City of Unley and anticipation is brewing with the announcement of South Australia’s first ever coffee festival, Double Shot! Coffee Fiesta.
The City will transform into a coffee lover’s paradise with the fiesta set to take place on Sunday March 16 at the Soldiers Memorial Gardens on Unley Road. The free event, which is also part of the 2014 Adelaide Fringe, is expected to attract thousands who will be encouraged to celebrate Adelaide’s thriving coffee culture.
City of Unley Event Coordinator Carly Smith said the event was conceived from a meeting between the Council and Adelaide Fringe Director Greg Clarke.
“We are extremely excited to be part of the 2014 Adelaide Fringe and the event will offer the very best coffee from around the world brewed by the very best baristas from local roasting companies and leading cafes around the area.
“The Fiesta will offer gourmet food, local musicians, free coffee tastings and entertainment in a fun, family friendly atmosphere.”
Local roasters and baristas from a number of local cafes will host individual stands ensuring a huge range of coffee blends and a wealth of coffee knowledge. Bar 9, Di Bella Coffee, La Crema Coffee, By Blackbird and Carnevale are just a few who will be on hand to share their rich knowledge of coffee to revellers.
International award winning barista Ian Callahan, who owns Bar 9 on Glen Osmond Road, said the Double Shot! Unley Coffee Fiesta will be a great way to bring together coffee lovers in a beautiful community setting.
“We have so many amazing coffee shops and bars in the Unley area and I for one am really looking forward to showing off our rich and diverse coffee culture to people from all corners of Adelaide and South Australia,”
“This is truly a not-to-be-missed event and is a great way to finish off the Adelaide Fringe party in style!”
