It’s rapidly coming to that time of year when the London Coffee Festival occurs.
A celebration of all things coffee – specialty and otherwise – in the heart of Shoreditch, this annual four day festival is becoming a must-do for London coffee lovers.
At the heart of this long weekend lies the UK Barista Champs. The winner will represent the UK at the World Champs, in Melbourne this year. Last year’s UK champ, Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood placed sixth in the world.
But this is not just about a competition. This is about trying new coffees and methods to prepare them. Of discovering why a latte is a latte and what makes a flat white flat. This is about copious cups of coffee and platefuls of glorious food to accompany the black gold. And it’s about catching up with your friends to chat.
So grab your mates and some tickets and get yourselves down to The Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch for April’s London Coffee Festival.
