There were so many teas to choose from! The coffee selection was ok. Quite liked the Turkish coffee! Two things they could do better is 1. have a map of all the different vendors and 2. have more chairs at the seminars.

This was a pretty unorganized event. The space was too small, with no real directories. This made the lines and crowds annoying. I think we stayed for about 35 minutes, bought nothing, and did not really enjoy ourselves.

I believe this was the first Coffee and Tea expo and it felt that way. The Teas were excellent but some of the coffee booths were lacking. I thought I was going to try some more gourmet coffee or rare finds but they were regular coffee for the...continued

I found this event to be cute for a Saturday morning. Something different for $10. Anything more than $10 tickets wouldn't be worth it. There were quite a few vendors. After entering we received a goody bag. Entenmann's gave a lot of additional...continued

Poorly organized and didn't live up to the write up. There was a fortune teller there... and a guy selling soap(!) Not enough real coffee and tea vendors with enough freebies and products for retail customers to try.

Not well organized, demonstrations/challenges were lame and the mics/speakers were not well set up so you couldn't hear. Coffee was not good and we are huge coffee drinkers - we've been all over to find unique coffee shops for great coffee and we...continued

Very fun event, definitely worth the $10 admission that we got thru Goldstar. It was jam packed, and with the space being fairly small, it was a little hard to move around. But the vendors overall were high quality and their wares were well...continued

overall i enjoyed my first time experience (1) the tickets said first come, first served to get early and select your own seat- there was no seating you just had to walk around endlessly tasting; there were a few hidden tables in one alcove ;...continued

The event itself was pretty good. The Barista challenge was a waste of time. There was only one challenger, so no competition. The audio was very poorly done.

I enjoyed the presentation byChef Melody because she let the audience sample everything she mentioned (bread pudding, rice, brownies, cream cheese) and it was very tasty.

Worth going to! Tasted a lot of great teas and some coffees. Learned a lot about the different cultures and remedies teas provide. Would recommend. It was really nice!

Yes it was crowded and yes it was slightly unorganized but seriously compare to an event like this at the javits center it was pretty good. The people there were nice and friendly no attitude and very helpful. Very nice mix crowd.

The event had plenty for both a tea lover and coffee lover. However, being a tea lover, I was impressed at just how much there was for tea. There was a wide variety of vendors and most of the prices for their products were relatively reasonable....continued

Me and my friends had so much fun. All the exhibitors were super friendly, chatty and informative. The coffees and teas were delicious. Snacks were very limited and you had to pay for most, but you'll be so full of caffeine, I'm not even sure...continued

there was a nice variety of vendors who had samples to take home or taste while there - but the layout caused bottlenecking of people and a backup around the vendors so it was often difficult to talk wtih the vendors and see their product lines -...continued
