GLASGOW, UK – Fans of coffee, brace yourselves, because the Glasgow Coffee Festival has been expanded to two days due to massive demand. Created to celebrate a vibrant and growing specialty coffee culture in Scotland, the festival will feature a variety of coffee exhibitors, cafes, roasters, masterclasses, and workshops.
The Merchant City event aims to educate, serve, entertain, and inspire coffee consumers – something sure to be a big hit with Glaswegians – as it showcases the passion for quality coffee in the Scottish coffee community.
Visitors will be encouraged to meet coffee professionals, sip their way around a carefully chosen gathering of roasters baristas, artists, brewers, and bars, all the while viewing competitions, art, film and photography.
The UK Barista Championship heat and the UK Brewers Cup final, sanctioned by the Speciality Coffee Association will also be hosted at the festival.
Curated by Glasgow’s own Dear Green Coffee Roasters, the event will be held on May 6 and 7 at the renowned, historical venue The Briggait in Bridgegate.
Workshops and presentations are all free to attend, and day and weekend tickets are now on sale at glasgowcoffeefestival.com.
