How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
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 most part. However, even though I don't like tea, the tea booths seemed more polished and had a lot of variety compared to the coffee booths. the layout was kind of confusing but we enjoyed it since it felt like a scavenger hunt for the little gems hidden here and there. The one thing I didn't like was the psyche reading parts... like you could tarot cards, palm reader, and aura readers. When I think of coffee I don't think about psychics and felt they were just thrown in to the mix as filler. I missed most of the shows since I couldn't find them and when I did they were packed and didn't have enough seating. I think it was due to event space, seemed like a reused office floor instead of a event space to me.
