Tauranga Coffee Festival
Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world and it’s association with the cafe culture here in New Zealand has provided an industry within itself. More than just a morning ritual, it’s become a multi-million dollar industry around the world and New Zealanders now consume an average of 3.7 kilograms of coffee beans per person annually, higher than our Australian and UK counterparts.
The Tauranga Coffee Festival will honour our vibrant New Zealand coffee scene and community by featuring a wide range of artisan coffee brands, home Barista workshops, an all-day Espresso Martini bar plus a gourmet street food lane serving eats inspired by the humble bean.
For those who aren’t the most dedicated coffee addicts, there will still be loads of pop-up entertainment to enjoy. Architect and street artist Matt Liggins will be making a special appearance at the festival exhibiting his infamous ‘The Real Pyramid Schemer’, a live art installation in collaboration with Georgia Taylor from Coffee Cup Poetry.
If you’re a cafe, coffee brand, barista or discerning coffee lover, you won’t want to miss this new event. Tickets are now on sale for $15 per person with a limited number of early-bird tickets receiving a limited edition ceramic festival cup, in collaboration with George and Co,
