London Coffee Festival, 12-15 April 2018

For my followers who live in or near London, here are details of experiences at the London Coffee Festival this April:

The London Coffee Festival

The London Coffee Festival is back, and we’ve got some exciting plans to share with you…
At the festival, you’ll be able to embark on a journey of coffee discovery.
Tastings? Check. Demonstrations from world-class roasters? Of course. And cocktails? You bet.
We want you to get the most out of your experience, so this year, we’ve added a whole new floor to discover and a killer line-up of festival newbies. Check them out below.
Explore a Brand-New Floor
There’s a whole new floor of coffee experiences for you to discover and enjoy. Relax in the newly designed VIP suite by La Marzocco, and sample incredible flavours in The Tasting Room. Get your thinking caps on at The Lab; now three times bigger than before, it’s a dynamic place to learn, debate and experience. The UK barista championships will also take place in this exciting space, so take your seat to see coffee in competition at its highest level.
Discover the Sensory Bar
Tap into your senses at the debut La Cimbali Sensory Bar. You’ll be served a selection of three exceptional coffees, all sourced specifically for The London Coffee Festival. Sample each coffee three different ways, as served by your barista, for the ultimate exploration of flavour. Next door, head to the La Cimbali Benchmark Bar, where the crown champions from our Coffee Mixologists competition will be pouring their finest serves. Stay tuned for further news, due to drop very soon.
Party at The Espresso Martini Bar
The Baileys Espresso Martini Bar is returning, along with a twist: the Flat White Martini. Stop by to try this luxurious reworking of the classic espresso martini at the Espresso Martini Party on Friday night. Can’t attend launch night? The bar will be open for business all festival-long. Mixing it up this year are Sandows Cold Brew, who’ll be joining the party with their espresso martini made with Ketel One Vodka and Mr Black. We’ve still got ten weeks until the festival, but dry January is now over, so click here for Baileys cocktail recipes.
Embark on a Journey of Coffee
The House of Coffee opens to all visitors for the first time, focusing on the coffee journey from bean to cup. Discover raw green coffee beans, learn as they are live-roasted and brewed using different techniques. Roasting specialists Colonna Coffee, Taylor St Baristas and IKAWA are just some of the exciting brands who’ll be there to help you along. It’s the perfect first-stop for anyone new to coffee; you’ll see, smell and taste your way through the holistic coffee experience.
And all Your Favourites are Back
What’s a festival without its headliners? Cheer on your favourite baristas at Coffee Masters, our battle-style barista competition. The True Artisan Café returns with a stellar line up of specialty coffee roasters and cafes set to take over La Marzocco’s legendary machines, and Union Hand-Roasted are on hand with their famous flavour challenge. The latte art legends are back in town for Latte Art Live; you’ve seen them on Instagram, but now they’re pouring right in front of you. Be inspired, pick up tips and sip on all the coffee you can take.
