It's bean away (groan) but now Glasgow Coffee Festival is back
The seventh annual Glasgow Coffee Festival returns to the Briggait for the first time in two years.
The two-day coffee fest will return to its home after being alfresco to accommodate Covid. The stunning old fish market is the site for over 40 exhibitors showcasing their coffee knowledge.
Mossgiel Organic Farm, Modern Standard, Steampunk, Bare Bones and Faodail Roastery are amongst more than 20 businesses who have already signed up to be involved – with registrations still open.
Organiser Lisa Lawson, founder of the Glasgow Coffee Festival, believes this year’s event provides a platform for Glasgow’s coffee scene to stand up and be counted among the world’s best.
She said: “In Scotland we can often be seen as the underdogs but we should be rightfully proud of the community of coffee professionals who are driving coffee standards forward locally. The skill of our ever-increasing community of roasters and baristas should be celebrated as being on par with some of the best in the world.
“It’s dramatic to see the change since I launched Dear Green in 2011. I love seeing more and more new specialty coffee businesses opening and the industry growing. Bringing us all together under one roof really does showcase how far we have all come. With the festival selling out each year it also proves how much Scotland loves great coffee!”
Tickets cost £12 per session and will include presentations, film screenings, tastings from Olam Specialty, Falcon Specialty and Kamba as well as much coffee as you can drink from all of your local favourites.
