The London Coffee Festival is paradise for any coffee lover. This four-day event, now in its sixth year, offers a range of exciting and original activities to celebrate all aspects of one of the nation’s favourite drinks. The festival kicks off on Friday night with the Espresso Martini party headlined by the legendary DJ Yoda. Other events include the chance to meet the world’s best baristas, watch them compete for a £5k cash prize in the Coffee Masters challenge and learn all the tricks of the trade, from perfecting your latte to choosing the best beans. Don’t miss this if you’re a coffee fiend!
The festival takes place at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane in East London. The public event (there are extra activities for industry professionals) takes place from the evening of Friday 8th to Sunday 9th and is divided into three sessions: brunch (10am to 1pm), lunch (1pm to 4pm) and teatime (4pm to 7pm). The venue is a ten-minute walk from any of Liverpool Street, Aldgate, Aldgate East or Shoreditch High Street stations. Half of the ticket sales, which are available here, go to Project Waterfall, a charity which aims to provide clean drinking water in Tanzania.
The organisers of the London Coffee Festival view coffee as a way of life and one of the aims of the festival is to celebrate the various subcultures surrounding coffee. One event which is always a highlight of the festival is Milk & Sugar, which showcases fashion and design. You’ll be able to check out cutting-edge and ethically produced fashion, jewellery and eyewear worn by the likes of Rihanna and Jenson Button.
