Double Shot Coffee Fiesta Brews Up A National Award

The City of Unley’s Double Shot Coffee Fiesta has been recognised as the Showtex Australia Best Small Event announced at the Australian Event Awards held in Perth last night.

The 2018 Double Shot Coffee Fiesta attracted more than 12,000 coffee lovers from across South Australia and interstate to Unley to enjoy some of Australia’s best speciality coffee and to see our most talented baristas in action.

This national award recognises the Coffee Fiesta as an event that delivered an outstanding experience for attendees on a small budget. “It’s a privilege to sit alongside such high calibre nominees and winners across Australia” says City of Unley Deputy Mayor Peter Hughes. “This is delightful recognition of the collaboration by our events team and our invaluable sponsors, with the important support of the speciality coffee industry and suppliers.”

“I’d like to express a big thank you to our local and visiting coffee lovers, our sponsors and stall holders who have embraced the Double Shot Coffee Fiesta, they have been integral in shaping the fiesta into a must-attend event”.

Planning is underway for the next Double Shot Coffee Fiesta scheduled for November 2020.

“Following feedback from all involved, the event is intended to be held biennially”, says Deputy Mayor Hughes. “This will ensure that our event continues to align with the Australian Specialty Coffee Association Western Region Barista competitions and we hope to continue to be selected as the host of these competitions in South Australia well into the future”.
