Shaine first visited the New York Coffee Festival in 2015, its first year, and had a great time (you can read all about his experience here) getting caffeinated. He tasted everything from cold brews to draft lattes, delicious espresso drinks and even got to see a latte art competition.
I’m looking forward to attending this year’s festival and if you’re a coffee lover like me and in the city October 13-15, I’ll see you there! For more information regarding this year’s festival, read the official press release below.
