Coffee and Chocolate Festival Cape Town 2017… disappointing!

Late, I know! Work’s been busy and no Internet access at home, but i was out at the Coffee & Chocolate Festival Cape Town this weekend and oh my, what a disappointment. Even the SA on Tap Craft Beer and Music Festival was better and you know how I hated that.

VENUE

It was held at the Durbanville Racecourse so the venue was absolutely shit, literally (yes, I am swearing, that’s how bad it was). You really don’t want to be walking in random shit when you’re trying to make your way around. There was really no effort in presentation from the event organisers and and from the vendors. Stage looked sad. Vendor stands looks sad. Toilets… horrible. I hate those portable blue toilets. Please find out from Monte Casino where they hire their toilets from.

 

AMBIENCE, FOOD & DRINKS

Boring. Went alone because I was “in a working capacity” but even then you should enjoy yourself and feel some sort of ambience in the air but nothing! Food… nothing outstanding. There were like two craft beer stalls (if I’m mistaken, I’m sorry). But I found new live music peeps to check out so that’s a positive (will post that soonest). There was Coffee In A Cone, always a plus, and the Chocolate Demo by Beyers Chocolates wasn’t too bad either! Other than that it was terrible.  Seriously disappointing. I realise now why they record those website videos in Johannesburg.
