We seem to talk a lot about food, wine, coffee and cakes on Get Up & Go's blog - 'why no't I say! Travel and being a tourist is about tasting the flavours of all your destinations - and Sydney, if you are a visitor or a local is not exception. Edwina Storie, for Get Up & Go, did the hard yards recently in the search for great coffee:
Australians are proud coffee snobs. We are particular about our blends, our brands and our baristas. The InterContinental Sydney has launched a High Coffee experience that meets the standards of all discerning caffeine drinkers.
Inspired by the tradition of high tea, it is led by the bold flavours of the bean complemented by a feast of sweets and savouries. The menu was created by award-winning chef and coffee connoisseur, Stefano Manfredi, and features his signature Espresso di Manfredi by Piazza D’Oro coffee.
Get Up & Go had the pleasure of tasting the delicacies in the elegant Harbour Room. The decadent experience was highlighted by cardamom-spiced espresso martinis, salted caramel an espresso bavarois cream éclairs, and cinnamon and ginger chocolate crème brûlée.
High Coffee is served in the heritage-style Cortile Lounge of InterContinental Sydney between 11:00am and 4:30pm. Priced at $55 per person, the experience includes a martini upon arrival, Café Freddo, a coffee of choice and the three-tiered stand of treats.
Booking can be made through restaurant reservations on 02 9240 1396, firstname.lastname@example.org or www.interconsydney.com.au.
