The 2017 London Coffee Festival is just over three weeks away and we can’t believe it has been seven years since the first one took place! The official launch event for UK Coffee Week – the doors open Thursday 6 April and the show finishes on Sunday 9 April. The festival will be back at Old Truman Brewery in London where it all began and it has grown year-on-year. The first event attracted just 7,000 visitors and last year’s welcomed over 30,000 visitors through its doors!
We are extremely proud to once again be one of the main sponsors of the festival and are really looking forward to meeting with old and new friends. This year we are running a sensory experience involving coffee and whisky. We will be running masterclasses which are 20 minutes long and will be led by top industry experts. Visitors taking part in the classes will have the chance to explore the relationship between different coffees and whiskys and how they taste when they are paired together, and create a signature Specialty Irish Coffee.
If you want to be involved in our Coffee meets Whisky sessions, then please make sure you are in the Hyde Park Area of the festival where we will be on the Main Stage during the following days and times:
Thursday 6 April – 11.00/14.00/16.30
