Book Now for a Gourmet Coffee Tasting Event in the Capital
Are you a coffee connoisseur? Whether you’re a roasting expert or you’d like to be, book now for super early bird tickets to the London Coffee Festival 2018.
The coffee industry in the UK has seen the biggest growth in Europe during the past twelve months, according to data collected by analyst group Allegra World Coffee Portal in a recent ProjectCafe 2017 Europe. The nation drinks approximately 55 million cups of coffee each and every day, with 16% of all coffee buyers being millennials aged between 16 and 34 years old, who are mostly interested in ground coffee and single-serve coffee pods. As far as high street coffee shops go, 16% of coffee drinkers visit one on a daily basis, while 80% of people who visit them choose to do so at least once a week.
If you’re one of the million coffee lovers, then why not head to the London Coffee Festival which is already selling a limited number of super early bird tickets for its next event in April 2018?
The festival kicks off on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th April, 2018 for trade visitors only. It then opens to the general public from Friday night through to Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th. The event takes place at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane in East London.
Get the Coffee Party Started
If last year’s festival is anything to go by, this event promises a huge buzz for the nation’s coffee drinkers. Earlier this year, 30,832 coffee lovers and industry professionals attended the sixth annual event.
The public session on Friday night will begin with an Espresso Martini party from 8-10pm which last year was headlined by Norman Jay, the co-founder of Good Times Sound System and KISS FM. Although no names are confirmed yet for 2018, the promise is that the party will be even bigger and better.
Celebrate Coffee Culture
The following two days can be spent enjoying gourmet coffee, speciality tea and artisan food. Perhaps the only event not to require coffee machine hire for exhibitions, true connoisseurs will instead love to visit the ‘The True Artisan Café’ which is inspired by Europe’s best 36 coffee shops and showcases the skills of some top baristas. A wide range of signature-based espresso drinks are prepared such as the Hockney Hawthorn, which is a single origin espresso roasted at the Tate Britain, paired with 75% of cocoa single origin Tanzanian chocolate and hawthorn berry juice which is then served as a delectable mousse to be garnished with seasonal wild flowers. Signature drinks like this are truly an art form.
Hone Your Coffee-Making Skills
For those that want to improve their own home brewed coffee, there are numerous workshops available that will demonstrate everything from how to pull the perfect espresso to using the La Marzocco Linea Mini domestic coffee-making machine.
So, if you want to spend an entire day immersed in tasting and learning everything there is to know about your favourite drink, why not book your early bird tickets to London Coffee Festival 2018, today?
