Wake up at Pier One Sydney Harbour and smell the coffee at the Rocks Aroma Festival in July…

Escape the daily grind and celebrate Australia’s love of coffee, chocolate and tea at The Rocks Aroma Festival held on 21 July 2013 and presented by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority. Enjoy a winter’s indulgence at the 16th annual event right here in The Rocks and on the footsteps of your ideal Sydney hotel accommodation, Pier One Sydney Harbour.

This is a unique opportunity to speak to leading baristas and find out their secrets to making a delicious cup of coffee, learn about the flavours and aromas of freshly brewed coffee and how to evaluate coffee in terms of the aroma, acidity, flavour and aftertaste.

The Rocks Aroma Festival includes the following entertainment for the whole family to enjoy:

  • Specialty coffee masterclasses;
  • Free cooking demonstrations;
  • Chocolate, coffee and tea tastings;
  • Live music, dancing and other entertainment;
  • Market stalls;

Experience coffee all around the globe with the Rocks Aroma Festival honouring four world regions in different city locations. First Fleet Park will turn into The Latin Quarter showcasing the colour and vibrancy of South American coffee, music and dancing with The Continent at the Overseas Passenger Terminal featuring classic European coffee styles.

Kendall Lane will be transformed into The Orient and will feature a range of exotic herbal teas, organic chai and aromatic spices and delicious Asian fare such as Yum Cha and Sushi and The Oasis at Campbells Cove will display a range of exotic Turkish and Middle Eastern teas and coffee accompanied by bellydancing and Arabic music.

The Rocks was where the Australian tradition of drinking coffee started and the hub for Australia’s first coffee, chocolate and spice traders. The Rocks Aroma Festival shows no signs of running out of steam with more than 120,000 people attending the coffee lover’s event in 2012 so book your Sydney accommodation now at Pier One Sydney Harbour.
