Anyone ever been to the Birmingham Coffee festival? Is it worth going? If so, what day would you recommend? It’s this week and I have an urge to go but not sure if it’s worth the tenner on the door. Not too interested in watching any of the seminars (unless it’s recommended?), just walking around and having a look/buying some beans.

It’s a very poor relation of LCF. You won’t spend more than an hour there. Very little there in the way of kit.

Would you regret more not trying or paying a tenner, having some coffees, exploring some new roasters you haven’t tried and having some entertainment?

Against my own better judgment I went today. It remains a poor relative of LCF. Some credibility lent by the presence of Hasbean, Caravan, and Origin. Good to see local roaster Ngopi and (less local) Iron and Fire in attendance. Sadly the former didn’t attend with an espresso machine, and the latter charged a quid for drinks that would be free as samples at any other coffee festival.

Maybe better worth waiting for Cup North to return for those who live north of the Watford Gap.

Cheers for the feedback - would you say not worth the tenner then?

Honestly, it depends. If you would like a London-style experience then no. If you are happy to go along with a couple of mates/significant other/whomever then you might well enjoy it for what it is and then pop into the city afterwards. For me it was disappointing.
