Best Coffee at the Adelaide Fringe

Well, it's that time of year again, when the Fringe festival makes it's way to the small old town of Adelaide, South Australia.

Detail's can be found here, but basically the Adelaide Fringe Festival is an annual open access multi arts festival, which takes place over three weeks all over Adelaide.  The festival typically brings together an ecletic mix of hippies, boguns, socialites, students, drunks and other arty people from across the state.

It's generally a great event (or set of events for that matter) showcasing the talents of various comedians and artists in a wide range of roles, and is definately one of the bigger nad better events to happen in South Australia.

As is usually the problem at just about any event, generally across the country, finding a decent coffee to help get you through the weeks and weeks of entertainment can be a tremendous challenge (I'd love to have a chat with the guy or girl who's in charge of organising the people (carts) providing things like food and drinks, and give them a smack over the back of the head).

So to make it easier for you, I thought I'd spill a little secret, Where to find a decent cuppa?

Head on over to Combi Coffee where coffee nutter, Josh, or one of his awesome staff will prepare you a fantastic cup.  Their coffee is certified organic fair trade, made from crops in Ethiopia, PNG, East Timor and Columbia.  The coffee is super fresh and rosted in the Yarra Ranges by David Moon.  The Coffee is made using 100% Atlantas spring and local Tweedvale milk (from Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills).

Needless to say, they actually care about the coffee being sent out, and not just pushing out a product.  They can be found just heading past the bridge, on the right, in the Garden of Unearthly delights.
