The Glasgow Coffee Festival is back for its third year! After selling out the previous years, this year’s festival has transformed into a two-day event taking place this weekend, May 6th and 7th, at The Briggait.
Curated by Dear Green Coffee Roasters, the Glasgow Coffee Festival is here to celebrate “the growing specialty coffee culture in Scotland,” with all profits being donated to Girls Gotta Run—a charity that uses running and eductation to empower Ethiopian women and their communities–and The Glad Foundation—a Glasgow-based organization that provides free and affordable music workshops to people of all ages and skill ranges.
This year’s festival will feature a handful of “coffee exhibitors, cafes, roasters, baristas, masterclasses, workshops, presentations and demonstrations.” And it will also play host to a UK Barista Championship heat as well as the finals of the UK Brewers Cup.
Among the 40 exhibitors will be Scottish coffee roasters like Dear Green and Spitfire Espresso, coffee gear companies like La Marzocco and Clockwork Espresso, and a litany of international roasters, including England’s Climpson & Sons, Assembly Coffee, and Square Mile, as well as Denmark’s La Cabra Coffee.
Tickets for this year’s event are £16 for a day pass and £24.50 for a weekend pass. They can be purchased via the Glasgow Coffee Festival’s Eventbrite page. For a full list of exhibitors and masterclasses, visit the Glasgow Coffee Festival’s official website.
