For some, it's a weekend treat with brunch at a bustling cafe, for others, it's their first taste in the morning, and for most, it's the driving force behind the 9-5. The coffee trade is worth over $7.6 billion to the New Zealand market and creates over 110,000 jobs - whatever way you look at it, there's no denying our country's - and the world's - love affair with these delicious little beans. If you're anything like us, word of a day filled with all things coffee will be music to your ears. Introducing the first Auckland Coffee Festival. On March 5th, Shed 10 will be transformed to a coffee lover's dream, celebrating our dynamic café culture and love of all things coffee. There'll be 40 stalls filled with not only some of the country's hottest coffee brands and coffee roasters, but also homewares, jewellery, florists, food and more. There's the choice of morning, midday, and afternoon sessions available, all for three hours apiece. Children under 12 are free, and the themed Kids Area will keep them entertained while you enjoy your brew. Tickets available here for $10.00 Check Auckland Coffee Festival out on Facebook for more info.
