There are two words that will instantly grab our attention when put into the same sentence. Coffee. And fiesta. Because an event celebrating our liquid lifeline can only be all kinds of amazing…
So you better believe that we will be attending the 2016 Double Shot Coffee Fiesta this weekend! Kicking off at 10am this Sunday 28 February, the Soldiers Memorial Garden in Unley will be transformed into what can only be described as a coffee lover’s paradise!
With the best of South Australia’s specialty coffee industry, including cafes, roasters, suppliers and bad arse baristas joining forces, this will be a celebration of all things coffee. There will be plenty of action to keep you buzzing all day long, and it will include more than just free coffee tastings! Gourmet food, live music and activities for the kids will make for an action packed event.
One of the highlights on this year’s program has to be the bar being run by experts from The Unley. Why? Well if there is one thing that is better than coffee, it is coffee and alochol combined! And The Unley will be using a local to create pure magic. Adelaide Hills Distillery‘s delicious spirits will feature in some of the creations including the EspressOMG Martini – a blend of Adelaide Hills Distillery Gunnery White Spiced Rum, Chilli Infused White Chocolate Liqueur, Coffee Tequila and espresso, or the fruitier option of the Sea of Green – a mix of Adelaide Hills Distillery 78 Degrees Gin, Elderflower Syrup, green tea, cloudy apple juice, cucumber and thyme. Holy yes, we will have six of each!
When you have had enough coffee (if that is even possible), they will also be serving up local Mismatch Brewing craft beer and cider from The Hills Cider Company. Plus if you take a photo of yourself at the bar, or your drink at the bar, and share it on social media, then you could win a Sun-Daycation. That involves you and 5 friends enjoying an afternoon at The Unley with cocktails and nibbles on the rooftop. Yes please!
Hungry? No stress, there will be some tasty food on offer to soak up all that coffee goodness. Get your hands on some delicious Mushroom Arrancini with Truffled Cauliflower Puree from The Unley Bar, or dabble in some yummy morsels from The Middle Store, Nutrition Republic, Bar 9 and many more.
We are drinking a coffee right now in anticipation!
