For a great chance to explore all aspects of our national obsession with stimulants, The 6th annual Coffee and Tea Festival NYC will be held this weekend, February 19th and 20th at 7 West 34th St. in NYC. It hosts a spectacular collection of coffee and tea companies from around the country. Open to both the trade and the public, the show serves as an opportunity for the gustatory professional and the public to meet on this common ground -- a love for the drink.
The event starts at 11am and finish at 5pm. Attend the Coffee And Tea Festival to brighten up your weekend in NYC -- certainly it is one way to warm up.
Once again there is event programming as well as exhibition booths and a goodie bag.
