SCENT OF COFFEE FILLS THE AIR FOR MAITLAND AROMA FESTIVAL

The smell of coffee and chocolate filled the air, as the Aroma Festival returned to Maitland today.

Custom sweets were among the treats on offer, and beans were roasted on a not-quite open fire.

Those too young for a caffeine fix were using coffee to paint.

While plenty sought out a “puppuccino” to keep their best friends warm.

Around 16,000 people are expected to rug up and take to the event across this weekend.
