Recently the 11th annual Coffee & Tea Festival was held at the Brooklyn Expo in New York City. I had no knowledge of it until my fellow blogger and friend, Joe over at NEO-BHM, told me about it. We quickly snagged some incredibly cheap tickets off a deal site and headed over the next day. Despite the shoulder-to-shoulder bumping and heat from the crowd, the high from caffeine and good company was quite worth the trip to Greenpoint.
I wasn’t really a coffee or tea fan until these last few years. I drink tea quite often since I lived in London back in college. As for coffee, I would sporadically order a caramel macchiato from Starbucks only for the sake of drinking it, but when my brother and coffee enthusiasts introduced me to more hipster and local brewers, I became a spoiled fan of lattes, never wanting anything less than a quarter cup of milk. Yes, that means I’m not really drinking coffee coffee but hey, it tastes darn good. 😉 If you want to know the real science and coffee devotee, hop over to Joe’s blog and you’ll learn more than just where to go for good coffee but what you’re drinking exactly and how it affects your body.
Meanwhile, here are some photos from the event!
If you’re a huge fan of coffee or tea, make sure you catch it next year or the upcoming one in Philadelphia in November! It has tons of great products, vendors, tastings, and even workshops.
