  • The True Artisan Café

a stage for roasters & cafes


Bringing independent roasters and cafes from the UK and overseas to the big weekend, it’s the best offering yet for La Marzocco’s True Artisan Café.


Celebrating local, independent coffee communities, this original La Marzocco pop-up is at the heart of the specialty coffee movement. The rotating coffee shop concept is designed for you to meet the artisans one-on-one. Different independent cafes will take over La Marzocco’s legendary machines to create a bespoke signature drink.

The drink has to involve espresso, and be atypical of their style and taste (cocktails obviously encouraged). This year’s line-up includes some of the best cafés from the UK and abroad, but who’s signature drinks will you prefer? 

Watch, sample and party on down with the UK's top baristas who'll be joined by live DJs for a full-on party atmosphere. Drinks won’t be charged but donations to Project Waterfall are encouraged. 

Check out the 2018 highlights from the UK and abroad below. 



From the UK


The Grind Café Francais by Grind 
Everyone loved Grind’s unique (and indulgent) cocktail offering. This year, they are bringing a fresh twist on the famous Irish coffee to The London Coffee Festival, using the infamous French vodka Grey Goose to perk drinkers up.  

The Hard ‘Hood Breakfast Split 
Get to know the up and coming specialty coffee scene in the DRC the right way - accompanied by soft serve and doughnuts. This sweet treat is made with D R Congo Katanda yellow espresso; a light and delicately flavoured coffee.  
Peanut Butter Mocha Smoothie by Deliciously Ella 
A seriously delicious smoothie by Deliciously Ella that’s vegan friendly, gluten-free and non-alcoholic. The thick creamy base of banana, peanut butter and almond milk is balanced out by the energetic cacao and Extract Coffee Roasters Original Espresso. 

From Europe

Pura Vida Spritz by Tres Cabezas  
Straight from their Berlin roastery, the Tres Cabezas team are bringing their Ethiopian Kochere double espresso and shaking it up with toasted oat, pistachio syrup and Plantation Rum, served over ice, topped with soda and a sprig of thyme. 
His Majesty The Coke by HMC 
Italian artisan roasters His Majesty The Coffee are serving a royal twist and Coca Cola. Bursting with flavour, the natural Ethiopian Mekuria Yirgacheffe double espresso mixed with Coca Cola, cascara and water, then filtered on an Aeropress will pack a punch.  
Ginger Ninja by Meke Coffee Roasters 
Trust Ibiza’s top specialty coffee roasters to bring a dash of fun to the Festival. Expect sweet flavours from the Meke espresso, hailing from the Serrano region of Cuba, and a big kick from it’s sidekicks, mezcal, ginger and orange 


Paul Kelly from La Marzocco says:

'We are at a point where the consumer is starting to really understand what's in the cup! So it's such a pleasure to travel the UK and see so much focus from independent coffee shops on consistently good cups of coffee; their investment and belief in quality is something the whole world of coffee is watching. The UK is leading the coffee culture of Europe, and I find it amazing when you see how many visitors to the festival are from other countries. Long may it continue.'
