London Coffee Festival 2018

Recommended Posts

It must be a post Halloween thing: just booked (secret) supersaver tickets for Saturday 14th April and it will soften the blow of not being at the Manc CF this weekend.

I'm in on the Sunday; 1pm til 4pm. Would've done Saturday but it's my mother's birthday. Would've done earlier on Sunday but trains don't allow!

Is three hours enough??

 

No - we did that the first year and regretted it. Book a whole day, get there early, chat lots to stand holders, have a good lunch either on site or off-site for a breath of fresh air and break from the pounding bass line, and pace the coffee intake. Last year I was hallucinating when I left but it was marvellous.

Three hours is more than enough for me, call me an old man but I get claustrophobic towards the end, too much noise & too stuffy as well. Sat Brunch Session booked though.

That's a pretty dramatic way of getting out of going :)

 

Many congratulations to you both :)

Fourth year in a row for me. Usual Saturday brunch session booked. I'm hoping that there will be more decaf there this year as it was quite hard to find last year. My target this year is to buy beans from roasters that I've not tried before & beans from South East Asia if there are any there.

Has it gotten better in recent years? Last time I went it was rubbish. Good if you work in the industry and want to network and see what others are up to I guess.

 

beans from South East Asia if there are any there.

 

You don't see them as much as the quality just isn't there so they mostly end up as commodity coffee.

 

A few farms are trying to make the speciality grade so you do see the odd lot from Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar etc but it's a drop in the ocdan compared to Africa and South America.

 

A shame as they have good growing conditions, the potential is there.

There is already a thread on this here. It's always worth doing a forum search.

 

I don't know if a mod can integrate the threads to avoid possible confusion...
