Explore the capital’s vibrant coffee scene at The Old Truman Brewery

The not much more that Londoners love than their morning coffee so it seems only fitting that the bustling capital plays host to Europe’s largest coffee festival. Now in its eighth year, London Coffee Festival returns between 12 - 15 April, bringing with it the best baristas in town.

Held at The Truman Brewery coffee-lovers can learn from the very best with speciality tastings, industry talks, artisan workshops and showcases from world-class baristas and with over 250 exhibitors there’s plenty of time to sample exclusive roasts and pick their brains.

The La Cimbali sensory bar is a brand new feature, showcasing three stand-out coffees in three different ways, while La Marzocco’s True Artisan Cafe returns to offer up a refined coffee-tasting experience. If Lattes are your thing don’t miss out on Late Art Live which sees the world’s top latte art specialists come together to display their creations and offer hands-on workshops for those brave enough to give it a go. 

Make sure to check out The Espresso Martini Party, the festival’s annual knees-up event on the Friday night, where you can dance and socialise to a live DJ set with a classic Espresso Martini of Flat White Martini in hand.

“After nearly a decade of growth in the London specialty coffee scene, it is exciting to see the continued flurry of innovation and, of course, so many new artisan coffee shop openings throughout London and the rest of the UK each year.  London is now recognised as a true centre of excellence for the high quality, craft coffee industry and why The London Coffee Festival attracts thousands of trade visitors and ‘coffee tourists’ from all over the world.” – Jeffrey Young, Founder of The London Coffee Festival.

The London Coffee Festival kicks of UK Coffee Week, a national celebration of the UK coffee scene that also gives back to communities. Both support Project Waterfall, a charity initiative where 100% of proceeds go towards providing clean drinking water and sanitation to the world’s coffee growing communities.  

Early bird tickets are available online from £14.50, while on the door prices start from £22.50.
