If you are a fan of coffee, be aware that the biggest coffee fest of Slovakia will be held in Bratislava soon! If you come to the Sheraton Hotel on 25th – 26th April 2015, you will definitely agree on one thing – it will be a delicious experience :)
The idea of this event is to raise the level of coffee culture in Slovakia and it is for anyone who desires to know the culture of drinking coffee. If you like the thought of broadening your horizons, learning how to make good coffee and getting to know interesting people, Coffee fest Slovakia is the event you don’t want to miss! Check what the fest was like last time to know what to look forward to! :)
One of the activities you could do was professional coffee tasting – called “cupping:”
You could also taste special cakes baked in the best confectioners and cafes!
There was a man who was cooking hot chocolate right in front of us – so we could actually see how our cup of sweet treat was being prepared.
And we could also take the chocolate we liked the most (in my case caramel was the winner)!
But there was also something for those who like to drink a little „stronger“ things than coffee. This friendly gentleman explained how a good whiskey should be drunk and if you had any questions, he would be the expert to teach you some facts about Mr Jameson’s techniques :)
Besides tasting, there were tables with various items for purchase, such as selections of great coffees or chocolates.
And of course, what kind of a coffee fest would it be if you could not purchase coffee makers or keep cups? :)
In the main hall you could meet all the people who gathered to see the brew bar, espresso bars, drink a delicious tea or sit at one of the coffee lounges…
have an ice cream or participate at one of the competitions.
And funny but on the other hand practical was to see two ladies who were explaining how to brush your teeth correctly and which types of toothbrushes to see – coming in handy especially after eating all those sweets and drinking big amounts of coffee! :)
