Harris Coffee Masterclass and giveaway

I was invited to a Harris Coffee Masterclass which was held in a private residence in Darling Point overlooking the Sydney harbour, a million dollar view (envy). Before entering I couldn't pull myself away from the beauty of the harbour but I knew a cup of coffee was waiting for me and that was enough to get me on my way.  


Before commencing the masterclass there were treats a plenty on a huge table offering yummy macaron's, muffins, sandwiches and quiches to name a few, oh and of course COFFEE!  It was so hard not to have a cup in the morning when I woke up as it's my morning ritual but I knew I will be inhaling, sipping and overdosing on it later in the day.


Special guest Ada Nicodemou, Harris's ambassador, as well as Wayne Archer, Master Blender, who has been roasting and blending beans for Harris for 37 years and Daniel Vergnano, Coffee Specialist and Trainer were all here to give us the lowdown on coffee.

The blends that we taste tested
The coffee bench

We gathered around in the kitchen and listened to the history, stories and facts about coffee as well as tasting different blends.  The masterclass ended all too soon with so much caffeine running through my veins I started to get the shakes and I couldn't even upload images to instragram.  You see we were supposed to spit the tastings out in a bucket but it was so delicious I swallowed it all!


The event ended with a high, I met some amazing bloggers, walked away with enough coffee to keep me happy and with a wealth of knowledge, what more could a coffee lover ask for.

Before I end my post, Harris is turning 130 years young and we have an amazing giveaway for one lucky reader. The prize pack will include:
