Coffee is a drink that many people cannot do without. First thing in the morning, some people need their cup of coffee to get going. Throughout the day, this caffeine fix is both popular and a habit that is hard to break!
Now you can attend a coffee expo for all the people who love good coffee. The event has grown so much that this year they will be relocating to the Melbourne Convention Centre from 7th to 9th February 2019. This will ensure that you will have an even better event experience in 2019!
Now in its eighth year, this coffee expo will be Asia Pacific's largest specialty coffee event and is known as MICE (Melbourne International Coffee Expo). Here, there will be all things coffee in one place. You will be able to see and try the latest gadgets, coffee machines, see the supplies and of course, drink as much coffee as you want!
Bite Size Coffee Treats - In Europe, when you sit in a cafe and order a coffee you will generally notice your drink arrives with an unexpected treat on your spoon! This is European hospitality and ten years ago Bite Size opened and began to introduce this custom to Australia.
