Get your fix at the London Coffee Festival

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — Frank Harris @ 3:15 pm

London’s first coffee house opened in Cornhill in 1652 and within a dozen years 82 more had opened within the old walls of the City. The capital’s love affair with coffee had begun and 365 years later is showing no sign of waning.

If you are one of the millions of Londoners who wouldn’t dream of starting the day without their fix, you won’t want to miss the London Coffee Festival.

Latte Art

Now in its seventh year, the event is the largest gathering of coffee lovers in Western Europe. Aficionados can enjoy a host of events, one highlight being a competition between the world’s best baristas for the title Coffee Master. Another will be Latte Art live, a showcase of ‘milk-based artistry’. That’s a new one on us but it sounds like a big step up from the usual foam and sprinkles.

There will also be a range of workshops covering everything from brewing styles and bean varieties to tips on opening your own coffee shop.

Visitors will be able to soak up all the free coffee on offer by feasting on street food from some of London’s top food concepts. There will also be wine, whisky, craft beer, chocolate and tea tasting.

And those after a more relaxing experience can enjoy the opening night Espresso Martini party with a set by legendary DJ Norman Jay MBE.

The London Coffee Festival takes place at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane from 6 to 9 April 2017.
Tickets are from £16.50 for adults and £4.50 for children.
