The beans are being roasted, baristas are poised, so get ready for a celebration of Scotland’s incredible speciality coffee community. After a two-year absence, it’s time to wake up and smell the coffee big time with the return of Glasgow Coffee Festival for its seventh year.
Glasgow Coffee Festival produced by Dear Green Coffee Roasters will be welcoming coffee professionals and friends from across the country to showcase their products, their skills and their passion for all things coffee. Expect to see all of your favourite baristas, cafes and roasteries exhibiting and sharing their favourite coffees.
Taking place at The Briggait on May 7 and 8, the Glasgow coffee party has been split into sessions across the two days to allow as many coffee lovers to visit, whilst staying Covid-safe. Plus, the organisers added their 2020 concept into the mix by also taking Glasgow Coffee Festival ‘to the streets’ once more.
For just £5 a ticket, you’ll be able to access a whole host of deals and discounts from more than 50 of Glasgow’s best indie cafes and retailers for two whole weeks. With a ‘To the Streets’ ticket, you can keep the good vibes (and caffeine) flowing long after the Glasgow Coffee Festival weekend.
Prepare your palate for a sensory journey of flavours, aromas, masterclasses, presentations, product demos, film, art and competitions. You can even roast your own beans, try out the newest coffee equipment as well as taste your way around the world of coffee.
One thing organisers will definitely not be changing this year is their commitment to limiting the event’s environmental impact. Once again, Glasgow Coffee Festival is asking visitors to bring their own reusable cup to the event to help combat the 30,000 tonnes of coffee cup waste produced in the UK each year.
