Coffee Festivals Around The World

Monday, May 25, 2015

The summer holidays are just around the corner and many of us will already have an exciting trip booked up.

However, if you’re still racking your brains for something to do, fear not, we here at the Café2U Blog have got some suggestions… in the form of some of the world’s finest coffee festivals.

Enjoy – and if we have missed any off the list, please do get in contact!


The Dubai International Coffee & Tea Festival


The Duabi International Coffee and Tea Festival is the only internationally recognised coffee and tea expo in the Middle East.

The festival showcases all aspects of the coffee industry, including products, equipment and various services.

Over the last six years since its inception, the International Coffee & Tea Festival has proven instrumental to the development of the industry, providing professionals and coffee/tea businesses the exposure to promote their products, launch new concepts and seek new business channels.

The London Coffee Festival


We previously blogged about the London Coffee Festival back in April.

This new expo boasts almost 300 stalls which are brimming with gourmet food and artisan coffee.

These stalls will be offering tastings (of course) and street food, coffee-based cocktails, interactive workshops and demonstrations from some of the world’s leading baristas.

In addition to this conventional festival fayre, there will also be DJs, live music and entertainment, and coffee-based art exhibitions.

The Glasgow Coffee Festival


It may surprise you, but Scotland is home to a vibrant and flourishing coffee culture, and the Glasgow Coffee festival, which lasts for just one day, showcases the very best the country has to offer.

In addition to hosting a range of different coffee contributors, this year’s Glasgow Coffee Festival will also host the Scottish Barista Championship heat in conjunction with the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe.

The festival’s aim is to educate, serve, entertain, and inspire coffee consumers and a new generation of baristas.

Visitors are invited to attend workshops and presentations, view art exhibitions, national competitions and film premieres as well as enjoy products from roasters, brewers, baristas and bars.

Over to you

So, there we have it, a range of fantastic coffee festivals around the globe for you to check out.
