Something that has been exciting the capital’s coffee lovers for some time now is the prospect of getting together with like-minded souls at The London Coffee Festival.
Whether you are someone who simply loves to indulge at your local coffee shop, or consider yourself something of a wizard at making your favourite brew at home, with one of the great range of Tassimo coffee machines, the Festival is aimed at all fans of the bean.
Held at the Old Truman Brewery on East London’s famous Brick Lane, the London Coffee Festival takes place from 03-06 April this year. More than 20,000 visitors are expected to sample the sights, sounds, flavours and aromas featured at over 250 artisan coffee and gourmet food stalls.
Aimed at both discerning coffee lovers as well as those working in the coffee industry, there will be interactive workshops from world-class baristas willing to share their knowledge.
As well as all the things you’d expect at a Festival such as live music, DJs and art exhibitions, there will also of course be plenty of chances to sample and taste different types of coffee from around the world.
London has a particularly strong and vibrant coffee scene so it is the perfect choice to launch UK Coffee Week™.

To make the most of what the festival has to offer, you can find all the information you need at the London Coffee Festival website.
With a programme of events that includes both industry days and public sessions, there is something for everyone; whether you make your living from the world of coffee or are simply a dedicated aficionado.
