The London Coffee Festival Opens at 5pm

Coffee nerds and sleep-deprived people of the world, your attention please. London’s having a coffee festival. You should go! It’s taking place at Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane all weekend, and doors open to the public at 5pm this evening.

On Saturday and Sunday there’ll be three coffee visiting sessions per day, one for brunch, one for lunch and one for teatime. Who drinks coffee at teatime? Nutters, presumably. Anyhoo if you want to you can get tickets here.

The festival is expected to attract 20,000 visitors but don’t fear – it’s ticketed so shouldn’t be *too* much of a squeeze. There’ll be over 250 artisan coffee and gourmet food stalls, tastings and demonstrations from world-class baristas, interactive workshops, street food, coffee-based cocktails, live music, DJs, art exhibitions and much more.

 

 

You’ll also be permitted entrance to Milk & Sugar, The London Coffee Festival’s new feature where you’ll find plenty of inspiring stuff, from fashion to design and food.

 

Tickets priced from £11.50. Sprogs are £4.50. Sprogs under 10 are free, because they probably don’t like coffee anyway.

 

YOU ALSO GET:

  • Free interactive workshops, tastings, brewing tutorials & talks
  • Free coffee and food tastings, access to more than 200 progressive exhibitors
  • Barista competitions (see the masters in action during the SCAE UK Event Finals!)
  • Tropical beats from the coffee belt; DJs & bands, art exhibitions, cocktails, craft beer and street food
  • Free access to Milk & Sugar, a new showcase of inspirational brands spanning from fashion to design
  • Contribution of 50% of the standard ticket value to be donated to clean water projects in coffee-producing countries
