The Lab (Weekend)
Proudly supported by Lavazza...
At LCF 2022 we had a panel of industry figureheads to discuss game changing trends in our bustling coffee industry. Exciting sessions to stimulate thought (as much as our delicious coffee), which have been hand-chosen for all baristas, café owners, hospitality professionals, entrepreneurs and straight up coffee fanatics...

The Lab line-up equipped you with the latest industry knowledge, cutting-edge trends and ready-to-action market insights to future proof your business. Proudly supported by our friends at Lavazza, the Industry sessions are curated to educate, inspire and entertain.

With fascinating talks and debates on key topical issues and themes within the industry, an array of interactive demonstrations and workshops, and last but not least... multi-sensory tasting sessions that blew our mind! Did someone say Espresso Martini?

13:00 | Coffee and Wellbeing – A Short History
James Harper and Professor Jonathan Morris, producers of the 'A History of Coffeepodcast series, discuss the complex relationship between coffee and wellbeing in history. From early attempts to ban coffee on the grounds it was an intoxicant, and later ones to persuade drinkers that their favourite beverage was poisoning them, coffee has frequently had a bad press health wise. Conversely early proponents promoted it as a cure for everything from wind to skin-lightening, while increasing evidence has emerged of its physiognomic and cognitive benefits. Will anyone dare to promote coffee as a functional beverage today?
