The Rocks Aroma Festival — a festival for coffee lovers — was happening once again on Sunday. Having missed out last year and being a coffee addict, I couldn’t miss out this year. So, I braved the cold and the crowds to go drink some coffee.
My first coffee of the day was a Spirit Blend latte from Sacred Grounds. It tasted really good. Not sure if it’s because it was my first coffee of the day or if I felt all high and mighty due to it being organic and fair trade. But seriously though, it was really good coffee.
I wandered around a little, enjoying my first cup of coffee and people-watching. I even looked through a special solar telescope at the sun. I’ll be honest, I didn’t see much. I then lined up for my second latte from Grinders Coffee. It was nice, but I preferred the one I had from Sacred Grounds.
I wandered around a bit more and found my favourite fig, macadamia and ginger cookie from Whisk and Pin for lunch. After browsing the other stalls, I decided to leave the crowds and went to the Museum of Contemporary Art for a browse (more on that in another post). Overall, it was a nice day out at The Rocks Aroma Festival. A bit sad I didn’t try a coffee beer or coffee martini, but some pubs in The Rocks are still serving these drinks until the end of July, so I may still get a chance to.
