Around 15,000 java lovers are expected to turn up to the third annual London Coffee Festival on April 25-28, the flagship event of UK Coffee Week. It’s held, as before, at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, which will be divided into London-themed zones (Soho, Shoreditch, Hyde Park) plus the Showroom, where you can join all sorts of coffee fans, from independent coffee shop owners to professional baristas, in a celebration of all things roasted and ground. Thursday and Friday (until 5pm) are trade days. The line-up includes demos, tastings, masterclasses, plus there’s a pop-up roastery, live music and two dedicated food areas: one for street food (from dim sum to Indian wraps), the other for deli goods (from charcuterie to olives). 50% of all ticket sales will be donated to Project Waterfall, which provides clean water to communities in Tanzania.
Standard tickets cost £9.50 in advance, £12.50 on the door. For more details see our London Coffee Festival listing.
