Went to the Amsterdam Coffee Festival this Saturday, drank too much coffee and had heated discussions on brewing methods. Here’s a few photo’s I took.
Couple of random takeaways:
- Free coffee!
- The festival was smaller then I thought it’d be, hopefully some more exhibitors next year.
- Good way to taste coffee from some of the lesser known roasters or those without a store.
- The mix between industry and consumer struck me as strange. Who was this “festival” really for? I mean, who’s gonna buy a water purification unit or a roaster for their home? And do industry types really need a Starbucks stand?
- Starbucks having the biggest stand really makes no sense, certainly not if you want to promote artisan coffee.
- Airbnb was there…
