Coffee to go?
Encouraging Glaswegians and visitors alike to shop at local, independent businesses, Glasgow Coffee Festival takes to the streets for the very first time.
The annual event was initially scheduled for May but was postponed due to lockdown. However next month’s rescheduled two-day event can no longer take place indoors due to current restrictions. So, organiser Lisa Lawson, Dear Green’s founder, has announced her plans to transform the festival into a ten-day-long citywide celebration of the city’s baristas, roasters and coffee shop owners.
A ticket, which costs just £5, will provide unlimited deals and discounts in Glasgow’s best cafes from 16th to 25th October. During the festival visitors will be encouraged to not only support their local coffee shops but discover new ones.
Lisa said: “This festival is for everyone in Glasgow who enjoys coffee. Glasgow punches above its weight in the coffee world and that’s because of an amazing culture, where all the businesses support one another – it’s been amazing to watch this evolve in the almost ten years since I launched Dear Green.
“Your local coffee shops and roasters have been fuelling your home working whilst fighting their own survival battles. “Let’s show support to the amazing people behind all of these wonderful local businesses which enrich our communities and boost our local economy, by serving and roasting great coffee.”
