London Coffee Festival

What’s Hot | 28th Mar 2022 | 4min read

Get ready for the biggest coffee party on earth!

The London Coffee Festival is back this year. Hooray! 

A bit of trivia: the first London Coffee Festival was held 11 years ago with over 7,000 visitors and 100 exhibitors. Wow!

From then on, it became pretty clear that the festival was giving the coffee and creative community exactly what they wanted – and what London’s speciality coffee scene deserved, and it still does!

This year, 30,000 creative urbanites and industry professionals are expected to attend. So what should you expect? From coffee tastings to demos by world-class baristas to interactive workshops and live music, the festival has got them all covered!

The Global Coffee School Live 

Experience unbeatable masterclasses and perfect every step of your home barista process, from bean to cup and everything in between. 

The Roasters Village 

La Marzocco’s Roasters Village is back! Delve straight into the specialty coffee scene and taste some of the very best single-origin coffees, all under one roof, pulling an exclusive mix of the continents’ best roasters into the buzz of The London Coffee Festival! 

The Tasting Room 

Awaken your senses in The Tasting Room at this year’s LCF, in partnership with green bean traders, BELCO. Immerse yourself in interactive, multi-sensory workshops where you can try a little bit of everything… every single hour! 

The Lab

Expect an array of interactive demonstrations and workshops, fascinating discussions on key issues and themes within our coffee community, and last but not least… multi-sensory tasting sessions that will absolutely blow your mind! 

The Sustainable Coffee Flight 

Bring your reusable cup and celebrate sustainability at LCF. Not only will you be helping to reduce waste, but you can also sample coffee from some of our favourite sustainable brands! 

The Coffee Art Project 

On your way to the main stage, make sure you stop by The Coffee Art Project. The Project is an exciting competition around interpretive themes of coffee and is one of the core fundraising initiatives of our chosen charity, Project Waterfall. 

Latte Art Live 

Join the ‘Latte Art Lates’ festival closer to cheer on latte artists while they make your coffees a little bustier… every latte created within the final 15 minutes will be worth a donation to CoppaFeel!, the event’s chosen breast cancer awareness charity. 

Finish your London Coffee Festival experience in style. It wouldn’t be a true Festival without a killer music programme! Get caffeinated and make your way to the main stage to kick back and feel the beats of The Coffee Music Project.
