The London Coffee Festival is back for it’s 10th anniversary! We have been involved with The London Coffee Festival since its inception and now celebrating this amazing milestone together, this year is set to be as incredible as ever.
La Marzocco is featured across the entire four floors of the festival, returning with the La Marzocco Kitchen, The True Artisan Café, and the La Marzocco Roasters Village; bringing together more roasteries and cafes. The London Coffee Festival also sees La Marzocco sponsor Latte Art Live, bringing the magical Modbar to the stage. They’ll also play a huge part in the VIP Suite and the Secret Garden alongside sponsors Espresso Solutions, Grey Goose, and Nordiam Diary, as well as showcasing the PB Comet and the launch of their bespoke workshop, Officine Fratelli Bambi, in the Innovation Gallery, alongside the recently launched Florentine Mini and GB5.
The True Artisan Café TM is the original “pop-up” rotating coffee shop concept created by us to celebrate local, independent coffee communities. The format made its debut at London Coffee Festival 2012, taking home an award for “Key Feature” and one for “Best Stand Design” and has since been a firm festival highlight. Participants are asked to create and serve a unique, signature drink to encourage creativity in coffee and with all proceeds going toward the events official charity of choice: Project Waterfall.
This year’s participants include: Applaud Coffee, Daisy Green, District Coffee, The Black Penny, Hideaway London, Cable Co, Gourmet Coffee Bar, Forts, Cornerstone, Bobby’s, Pot Kettle Black, The Espresso Room, Grind, Rosslyn, Crosstown, Vaxx, Off the Streets, The Gentlemen Baristas and canvas.
The La Marzocco Roasters Village provides guests with a unique opportunity to try coffees from roasters across the country, all in one fantastic space. The Roasters Village will be split over two floors of the Old Truman Brewery. Pulling espresso’s on La Marzocco’s Linea Mini will be an amazing selection of over 22 speciality roasters, including:
Ritual Roasters, Quarter Horse Coffee, North Star Coffee Roasters, Kickback Coffee, Bailies Coffee, Allpress Espresso, Heart and Graft, Taf Coffee, Neighbourhood Coffee Roasters, Milk Shed Coffee, Caravan Coffee Roasters, Sustain Coffee, Outpost Coffee Roasters, Pelicano Coffee, Girls Who Grind, Union Hand Roasted, Origin Coffee Roasters, Trading Post Coffee Roasters, 39 Steps Coffee, Jericho Coffee Traders and Kiss the Hippo.
We are proud to bring back The La Marzocco Kitchen where guests can pre-book 30 minute Home Barista courses, all with a small donation of £5 towards Project Waterfall’s continued efforts. Home Barista trainees will be lucky enough to be in the vert capable hands of some of La Marzocco’s friends and partners, including London School of Coffee, Coffea Arabica, and Well Grounded.
We will also be taking part in this year’s The Lab, with members of the team featuring in some amazing panel discussions such as Diversity, Inclusion & Equality in Hospitality and Espresso Machines of the Future – A Discussion with Mumac & Friends.
