Hurray it’s that time again, a time when the world’s hot beverage purveyors come together to take part in Seoul’s greatest Expo – the Coffee Expo! I went last year and had the most wonderful time, the amount of coffee and tea products available was insane. The whole place was filled with hard to find goods.
There were so many different coffees to sample that I was practically vibrating as I walked out the door. And it’s wasn’t just hot drinks, they had smoothies, ades, juice and all sorts of ice creamy treats. Basically anything they sell in a coffee shop was up for grabs. And don’t get me started on the food, there was an insurmountable mound of free snacks and food offered in the franchise departments, be sure to come with an empty stomach. A few stands were even giving away free beer!
The Coffee Expo also gives you a chance for you to pick up restaurant quality equipment from Vitamixes and espresso makers, to cups, mugs and those little 3D foam making machines. It’s not just for industry folk there is plenty to see and do for the likes of you and me, like watching the World Barista Championships, now those guys know how to make a cup of coffee!
If you’re still not convinced why don’t you check out my check out my exploits from last year’s Expo here!
