Coffee lovers unite! Between 29 and 31 January Budapest transforms into the Mecca of Mocha, with a whole weekend dedicated to the black brew with tons of exciting stuff happening citywide!
Dozens of restaurants, cafés and tea-houses will take part in the merriments, offering discounts on all of their caffeine-based drinks, thus providing you with an ample amount of energy to keep you up on this busy weekend. Check out which venues participate on koffeinfesztival.hu!
If you’ve already received your dose of the vital beverage in your favourite café, then get up and head on to Nyugati tér, the 3000 m2 building of PRLMNT, which will act as a Caffeine Labyrinth during the duration of the Coffee Weekend, showing your everything you need to know about the magical beans and the products they’ve inspired through a series of rooms, leading you into a coffee-scented fairy-tale land. Here, every little detail has its own meaning and history. The Tea Sanctuary, for example, showcases the tea specialities of all the various tea-growing regions of the Earth, but the more simpler tastes will also be presented, as well as loads of related, fragrant products.
The Speciality Coffee Corner’s exhibitors don’t just view the little beans as their profession, but rather as their love and life. Small and large exhibitors will also be present, as well as a number of exciting items, such as coffee-based dishes and hot beverages mixed with alcohol.
While traversing through the labyrinth don’t be surprised if you find yourself in the Relax Room, where you can recollect yourself with a nice massage or the even more seductive scents, before venturing further down the Coffee Lane. If you’re a smoker, the Cigar Terrace will hit you like a breath of fresh air, but the HELL Energy Bar is also worth checking out, in case you want to fill up your energy bank. The Eating-and-Drinking Counter’s artisanal gastro products are really the icing on the cake!
