Most coffee shops per capita? Not exactly but Lane Covians certainly love their coffee which is why the local Coffee Carnevale has earned its place on the annual calendar for the past three years.
A blend (pardon the pun) of coffee and culture, this event is high-energy and highly enticing to anyone passing by the Plaza on Saturday 10 September. It will be an action packed day not to be missed. Get your friends together for a cuppa at your favourite lane cove coffee shop.
Stop in for a free samples, giveaways and demonstrations on cupping, brewing, aeropress and latte art. If you’re more into sitting than sipping then why not get your caricature drawn onto a coffee cup (for free!) or watch local mixed-media artist Pamela Fairburn dip her brush into coffee to create stunning artwork. Don’t worry, as always there’s plenty for the kids with craft, facepainting and a chance to find new ways to put used coffee grinds to good use. The Lane Cove Bushland and Conservation Society will also have their Spring Plant Stall there on the day so that you can get into the garden when you get home.
This year the event also features a Lane Cove Barista Competition hosted by Bar Blaq. Be sure to encourage your favourite barista to enter and see if they can take the latte-art crown at 3pm on the day.
And the final piece to the coffee-buzz puzzle is your Lane Cove Coffee Guide which is being launched on the day. There are almost 30 coffee shops listed along with maps to help you navigate your way throughout the village, well beyond the Plaza and into Greenwich, Northwood, Riverview and Lane Cove West. Can’t make it on the day? Visit Council’s website after the day to download your guide or pick it up from your local café.
Get ready to soak up the energy from the Plaza (and your coffees!) at this year’s Lane Cove Coffee Carnevale. For more information, including the latest list of in-store coffee shop specials, visit Council’s website www.lanecove.nsw.gov.au/carnevale
