Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) 2015 – Day 3

Day 3 was a bit of a quiet day for new cafes given the distance I had to travel and the limited amount of time that I had to use before heading to MICE to volunteer again. So even though St Ali was over 13km from where I was staying and all I had to rely on was public transport, I think getting there was an achievement in itself. That aside, walking…

Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) 2015 – Day2

Day 2 kicked off with a bit more back and forth that I had hoped for, but on the whole the experience was still a good one. I jumped on a tram and had been told that opposite the Auction Rooms was a Mork cafe that I “had to check out” pity that they weren’t open at 730am when I passed by. On a side note, what is it with…

Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) 2015 – Day 1

This year (finally) was my first opportunity to go to the Melbourne International Coffee Festival (MICE) and indulge my passion that is coffee. If my willingness to drive there from Sydney, or create a map focused primarily of finding awesome cafes in Melbourne (http://frid.co/2015MelbCoffee) isn’t reason enough, it was also a great opportunity to do my bit and volunteer to help out the Australian Speciality Coffee Association (ASCA). In short,…

BitterBliss 2015

Is it too early for New Year’s resolutions? How about a general plan? Over the last couple of months have found repeated opportunities to talk to many people about what I want to do with the BitterBliss website in 2015, so I thought it would make a decent post here. While it should be apparent that I am currently trying to get more engaged with the coffee community by volunteering for the NSW branch of the Australian Speciality Coffee Association (ASCA), I see BitterBliss as a means of supporting the broader coffee community. In supporting the community there are a…

Sydney Trains Coffee Map

As a challenge to myself I decided to find a great cafe for every single train station along the Sydney trains network. The result of that was a map.... which as a pure image I found less than useful.... but as an app.... well that's a different story. This app (for iPhone and Android) lists 186 cafes that I recommend all over Sydney. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee, you can support my efforts and perhaps convince me to do an expanded one for all of Sydney (not just the train network).
