One of the better espresso-themed events the world over is Sydney’s annual Aroma Coffee Festival at The Rocks, which will take place this year on Sunday, July 22: The Rocks – Sydney – Things to do in Sydney at The Rocks > What’s On at The Rocks > Aroma_Festival. OK, so they’ve since fattened up (diluted?) this event to include tea, spices, and chocolate. But it’s a great place to sample the local coffee for $1 (AUS) at the locus of Sydney coffee history. Plus good music, great scenery… (OK, so it’s winter Down Under.)

Whaddya mean, 'It's winter down here'?
