words by Caroline Chagas
Ah Melbourne… is there anything you cannot do? Your fickle weather plays host to a plethora of events throughout the year, covering all aspects of the entertainment/education/art/music/food/everything category.
This weekend it’s the Formula 1 Grand Prix but if you’re not into laps around the track, Melbourne has something else to get your heart racing.
The Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) 2015 is hitting the Melbourne Showgrounds this Friday 13th to Sunday 15th and is promising a stronger brewed year than ever before.
With 150 exhibitors from over 46 countries, an Outdoor Food Village feature hosting the likes of Hammer & Tong, Sliders on Tyres, OoOdleLishious and Crepes Cart, plus free workshops and demonstrations from the top baristas in Melbourne at the Brew Bar - your weekend is sorted! There are so many experiences under the one roof that we may just set up shop there and camp outside.
In a town where coffee runs supreme, there could only be one thing more fitting than an international coffee expo - and that’s the Melbourne Cake Expo, also happening at the showgrounds this weekend. Coffee can only get more awesome with a lamington on hand!
Just the thought of all that coffee has our heart racing - and not because of too much coffee.
