Playfair Café takes out inaugural Aroma Cup

Approximately 4,000 people voted for their favourite café in Sydney’s The Rocks throughout July; however it was Playfair Café that took out the inaugural Aroma Cup.

Coming in at second place was Café Danieli, meanwhile The Fine Food Store was voted the heritage precinct’s third best coffee destination.

The award is designed to recognise The Rocks café with the best coffee, and it saw a total of 13 cafes and restaurants battle it out for the top prize.

George Macris, owner at Playfair Cafe said he was honoured to receive the award. “We’re extremely thankful and privileged to have the continued support of our loyal customers.

“The Rocks has a wonderful community of cafes and baristas who really know their customers and how to make great coffee. So to be considered the public’s favourite amongst such high quality is a huge honour,” he said.

According to Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority CEO Catherine Gallagher, the Aroma Festival’s newest event was very well received.

“The response to the Aroma Cup has been remarkable. The sheer number of people who participated in voting for their favourite coffee maker speaks volumes for the high standard of food and beverage offerings that people are discovering in The Rocks,” she said.

Members of the public were also rewarded for taking part in the Cup, with each and every person who cast their vote placed in the draw to win an Aroma prize giveaway.

Anna Tellman took out the prize, which included accommodation and dinner for two in The Rocks and an ECM Casa IV coffee machine from Essential Coffee Services.

The Aroma Cup forms part of The Rocks Aroma Festival, the annual event presented by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority that celebrates all things coffee.
