knowledge is power 


The ninth London Coffee Festival is almost here, and we've revolutionised our The Lab programme, powered by MUMAC.

Next year, industry day sessions are designed to inspire you. With specific sessions targeted to the barista, café owner, hospitality executive, product specialist and entrepreneur, the line-up is more comprehensive and diverse than ever. 

Expect interactive demonstrations, workshops and tasting sessions, as well as inspiring talks and lively debates with industry figureheads.

There are so many exciting sessions to look forward to. Here are our top highlights from 2018.
