Coffee Festival on Lamma
Time Out says
Dive deep into coffee culture on Lamma Island
Speciality coffee shop Kafema brings the beans to Lamma Island this Sunday, May 19, with a one-day-only coffee festival. The Russia-born brand with an outpost in Wan Chai is organising everything from cuppings to brewing and latte art workshops ($200 each).
Kafema is also offering a range of beans — including Barako coffee from Hinitan Plantation. Native to Batangas in the Philippines, Barako coffee belongs to the Coffea liberica family (i.e., not arabica or robusta) and has a strong, aniseed-like flavour and aroma. Sounds interesting, no? Hinitan will also have some products for sale, like coffee soap and even coffee trees.
While the coffee workshops are underway, the Lamma Art Collective will put on some fun coffee-based workshops of its own. Those include a coffee cup painting workshop for kids and a workshop that teaches you how to paint with coffee itself. Tickets for these cost $100-$120.
The festival runs from 11am-6pm, and seats are limited for both the coffee and art workshops.
