Taking place on the 1st and 2nd of June, the inaugural Cape Town Coffee Festival will be held at The Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town’s Darling Street. And what’s more, there’ll be a trade session from 09h00 – 11h00 on Saturday the 2st of June, which means that you’ll be able to investigate some of the interesting coffee innovations on show at your leisure.
The Cape Town Coffee Festival includes 65 exhibitors, so you’ll be able to taste your way through the Cape Town coffee scene, with hundreds of different coffees to sample for free. Some of the features of the festival include Latte Art Live, The Small Business Lab, The African Coffee Experience, The Coffee Cocktail Bar, a Live Music stage, and a Coffee Art Gallery. There’ll be workshops and interactive demos, as well as top baristas, artisans and coffee companies to meet.
Speaking about this year’s South African debut festival, Allegra Group CEO, Jeffrey Young said, “We are delighted to be bringing the Coffee Festival to the African continent for the first time. Cape Town is a city of culture and creativity, and coffee and food play a huge part in the fabric of the city life. The event is a celebration of the vibrant African coffee culture, of the deep spirit of community that coffee fosters and of the career opportunities that it generates.”
