Aroma Festival ticket giveaway

Aroma Festival

Heads-up, Sydneysiders, the Rocks Aroma Festival is back for another year, taking over your senses once again and we’ve got a double-pass to give away to one of the workshops. Read on to find out how to win:

The festival is on now and continues right up to the Aroma Festival Day on Sunday July 26th 2015. In the lead-up to the main event, the festival is offering a range of coffee-themed workshops, including cupping, latte art and coffee appreciation, all curated by the Australian Specialty Coffee Association.

Take your coffee obsession from a love, to a lifestyle.

The festival, now in its 18th year, attracts coffee officiandos from industry as well as everyday coffee-lovers to the biggest coffee celebration in Australia. Produced by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, (SHFA) the boutique-style festival expects over 90,000 locals and visitors to flock to the scent of Sydney’s best roasts and brews.

The much-anticipated Aroma Cup returns for a third year to showcase the rich blends, barista techniques and carefully curated coffee from signatures from cafès in The Rocks. Cafès will compete throughout the month to win the people’s choice award as well as the industry award for the best coffee experience of the festival.

There’ll be a bunch of other experiences on the Aroma Festival Day, including food, market stalls, tea leaf readings and art exhibits.

We have a DOUBLE PASS to give away to COMPARATIVE CUPPING WITH ASCA this Saturday the 11th July from 12pm – 1pm at 6-8 Atherden Street, Sydney. The workshop will involve learning more about the journey of coffee from bean to cup, with comparative cupping of coffee from different countries and regions, as well as a ‘how to cup’ demonstration.

If you want to win a double pass, just send an email to with the subject line “Coffee on the Rocks” and remember to include your name in the body of the email. We’ll select a winner on the 9th July and advise them by email. Usual Ts &Cs apply (one entry per email address, you’ll have to make your own way there and back, by entering you agree to receive our weekly newsletter, from which you can unsubscribe at any time, blah blah blah).

The Rocks Aroma Festival takes place on Sunday July 26, 10am-5pm, with workshops and events throughout July. To find out all about the festival, visit the
