The defining event of the Hungarian world of coffees and bars, the CoffeeBar Bazaar (KávéBár Bazár) will be organized for the ninth time at the AKVÁRIUM KLUB on Erzsébet tér in Budapest on 3 and 4 March. With an entrance ticket visitors can taste the products of 30 exhibitors (coffees, teas, wines, spirits and other drink specialties).
Hungarian micro-coffee roasters and well-known brands will all be present among the coffee professionals, and you can taste products from the best growing regions of the world. You can buy these products too at the stands of course. The air above the most bustling square in central Budapest will be filled with the aroma of coffee, since the entire event center with its 4 halls will provide the venue for the programs and tastings.
Three national championships
During the two-day event, three national championships will also take place: baristas will challenge each other at the Hungarian Barista Championship, and the winner will represent Hungary at the world finals in Amsterdam.
