Coffee Fest Atlanta Brews Up The Best In Specialty Java: You know the Good Day Atlanta team likes coffee. In fact, we LOVE coffee. That's why we couldn't wait to see what was happening inside trade event Coffee Fest Atlanta! Coffee Fest tradeshows have been taking place since 1992, and are industry events spotlighting emerging trends in the coffee and gourmet tea industries. In other words, everything new in coffee, from flavors to machines to brewing styles, shows up at Coffee Fest first! Along with the products, the event also features education, training, and workshops for those in the business. Since the event is not open to the public (it's just for people in the coffee and tea trade), Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken went inside the 74th Coffee Fest Show, being held this weekend at Cobb Galleria Centre, so he could show the rest of us what's new this year. Like coffee? Then you'll want to see this! For more click here.
