Mr Black's Coffee Liqueur
Created using a dark blend of pure Australian grain spirit and single origin speciality beans from Papua New Guinea, Brazil and Ethiopia, Mr Black is a big, bitter and inexcusably coffee flavoured liqueur. If you like coffee, drinking and having a good time (who doesn't) then you’ll love Mr Black.
Mörk's Drinking Chocolate
Making their first UK appearance at this year’s festival, Australia's Mörk Chocolate specialise in making small batch dark drinking chocolate from pure cacao — especially for the specialty café scene. Mörk, simply meaning 'dark' in Swedish, sums up what they're all about — pure dark chocolate. We're one hundred per cent on board (see what we did there?)
Oatly's Oat Drinks
A great alternative to traditional cow's milk, Oatly's nutritious and sustainable liquid oat drinks are visiting us all the way from Sweden. Thanks to its taste and technical performance, Oatly milk has quickly become the go-to non-dairy milk of choice for Nordic baristas. Try it for yourself at The London Coffee Festival and see if you join the plant-based brigade.
Designed and crafted in Toronto, by a team of architects and craftsmen with a passion to change your everyday coffee experience, the Canadiano is carved out of Cherry, Walnut, Ash and White Oak. A Canadian pour-over method of brewing coffee, each piece is paired with different beans and roasts from around the world. Pretty cool hey?
Just Bee Spring Water
With 10 per cent of Just Bee's profits going to charity Friends of the Honey Bee, there's plenty of reason to try their honey infused spring water drinks. Available in three flavours: Blueberry, Apple & Ginger and Lemon & Green Tea, each has less than 50 calories and is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Oh, and Just Bee will even be handing out bee-friendly wild flower seeds to LCF visitors. We're buzzing with excitement.
Daisy & Dam's Superfood Chocolate

Each of their chocolate bars is lovingly hand-crafted in the UK using the best quality, organic ingredients, ethically sourced from all over the world.
