EVENT PREVIEW: Coffee + Tea Festival 2014 [NYC]

by Lea Faminiano

Coffee and Tea Festival

This year, we’ve been to wine festivals, brisket nights, chili fests, rum pairing dinners, you name it – so it was only natural that we added this year’s Coffee and Tea Festival to the mix.

In a city where every coffee shop is packed regardless of the time of day, the Coffee and Tea Festival NYC will be warmly welcomed, especially by the highly caffeinated.

Set at the 69th Regiment Armory on March 22-23, over 60 exhibitors of coffee and tea from around the world will be in attendance, serving up their finest, new, and award-winning beverages for guests to sample. Exhibitors include Buunni Coffee, Toby’s Estate, Path Coffee Roasters, Stash, Joseph Wesley Black Tea, Chai Diaries Premium Tea, Teas’ Tea, Yezi Tea, and much more.

To curb your caffeine intake, sweet and savory treats will be available as well, from exhibitors such as Cabot, 2 Chicks with Chocolate, Alchemy Creamery, Salazon Chocolate Co., among others.

With one-day tickets priced at only $20, you’d be crazy not to check it out, especially if you’re a big coffee and tea drinker – for the amount of about four Venti drinks at Starbucks, you’ll be able to taste a wide variety of drinks of all different flavors and qualities.

There are only a limited amount of tickets available, so act quickly!
