NEW YORK — If you make a habit of perusing my NYS Drinks Events calendar, you’re aware that the 6th Annual Coffee & Tea Festival NYC is nearly upon us.
The two-day event, open to the public and the trade, is an international event featuring demonstrations, tastings, lectures and product displays. Chocolates and other sweet treats will be availble as well.
The event will be held this weekend at 7WEST, located at 7 West 34th Street in Manhattan. Also included is the “Ultimate Barista Challenge,” a dueling stage of identical espresso stations where baristi will create espresso cocktails, caffe latte art, blend espresso frappe and brew the coffee.
There are four ticket options:
• Saturday: Coffee And Tea Festival, $20
• Saturday: Coffee And Tea Festival plus admission to “An Evening of Chinese Tea & Tradition,” $40 (100 tickets available to the general public)
• Admission to “An Evening of Chinese Tea & Tradition” only, $35 (100 tickets available to the general public)
