An event to really get you buzzing, the London Coffee Festival is frothing its steady way towards us, so grab a mug and meet us at Brick Lane’s Old Truman Brewery.
Now in its eighth year, this celebration of caffeinated goodness is Europe’s largest gathering of coffee aficionados and 0218 promises to be the largest get together yet with over 35,000 guests enjoying the beany wares of over 250 exhibitors poured over four floors.
Not only will all the perpetually wired visitors (coz freebies) be able to stroll around checking out the wares, there will also be live music from DJs and musicians, speciality tastings, artisan workshops and showcases from world-class baristas. There will even be Late Art Live, an event bringing together the world’s top latte art specialists (yes, that is a thing).
And in the evening, loosen up and dance the night away at The Espresso Martini Party, the festival’s annual Friday night party. Also in attendance will be the Flat White Martini and Baileys and Sandows Cold Brew.
If you’re into cofffee, then this event will keep you up in anticipation for days until it arrives, then up with the coffee shakes for days afterwards.
The London Coffee Festival runs from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th April.
