Taste fresh, locally roasted coffee from around the world on Saturday when the San Antonio Coffee Festival returns to La Villita at the corner of South Alamo Street and Nueva.
This is the second year of the event, which celebrates the welcome jolt that a really good cup of coffee can provide. More than 30 coffees will be available, and you can bundle your tasting into flights. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Art of Coffee offers a tasting of four coffees for $5, while Coffee After Hours, from 4 to 7 p.m. features a flight of four coffee-based cocktails for $12.
There will also be shopping, a walking tour of La Villita, food, live music, kids activities and the chance to pick up some gifts for the coffee lovers on your holiday list (including maybe a gift or two for yourself).
Educational workshops on everything from the health benefits of coffee to a discussion of fair trade coffee, plus how-to demonstrations are on the schedule.
The event is free.
