The importance of coffee also becomes apparent every 2 years at the INTERGASTRA trade fair, when the world of coffee gathers in a theme hall at the meeting point for the sector. The event will take place again from 20 to 24 February 2016, and the 3rd Stuttgart Coffee Summit will bring gastronomers and managers from the hotel sector together with international coffee experts.

At the industry’s top event in Europe, the aromatic bean will play an important role not only at the exhibitors’ trade fair stands. Also in the framework programme, partners, coffee experts, farmers and roasters will demonstrate their passion for coffee and present the complete value-added chain to visitors – from the plant to the cup.

Exciting events are also definitely planned on all 5 days of the event, and will provide many opportunities for an exchange of ideas and opinions among all those interested.

Coffee symposium

At the coffee symposium during the Stuttgart Coffee Summit, theory and practice, the present and the future will come together. Representatives of the entire value-added chain will meet here in the framework programme of the Stuttgart Coffee Summit to take part in passionate discussion of all aspects of the various kinds of coffee. Related themes such as climate change and its consequences for producers, best practice procedures for harvesting and roasting, certification and a CEO talk, at which farmers, roasters and managers from industry will meet.

Flavour forum


Live roastings will be the main focus at the flavour forum at the 3rd Stuttgart Coffee Summit. Farmers from all around the world will provide a selection of their raw coffee sorts and explain the characteristics and special features of their sorts to the specialist visitors. The roasting masters will also explain the choice of machine and the roasting profile, and in a concluding cup tasting session farmers and roasters will evaluate the results in a blind tasting. Gastronomers and specialist visitors at the Stuttgart Coffee Summit will also cast three votes for their favourites in an open cup tasting session.

Barista jam and latte art throwdown

When baristas from Germany and abroad try to outperform each other making the best café crema and conjuring up the frothiest milk foam in the cups, then there is no shortage of show and entertainment. At the barista jam session, specialists will demonstrate their art and entertain the trade fair visitors accompanied by cool sounds. The Stuttgart Coffee Summit will provide creative highlights at the latte art throwdown, at which international coffee professionals will compete and measure their skills before a top-quality jury, and have to spontaneously produce coffee creations using various ingredients and pieces of equipment.


The world of hospitality – This is the claim of INTERGASTRA, one of the most important European trade fairs for gastronomy, hotels and dedicated hosts. In 2014, the comprehensive offer on over 100,000 square metres of floor space brought together almost 90,000 visitors and around 1,300 exhibitors from Germany and abroad. The event thus meets the high expectations, and regularly receives top marks from the exhibiting companies and specialist visitors alike. Kitchen technology and food, ambience and equipment, services, handmade ice cream, beverages and coffee – These are the themes on which the specialist visitors from Germany and abroad obtain information, and are encouraged to think outside the box. The gastronomical heart of Germany beats in the south west, where INTERGASTRA showcases innovations trends and provides many opportunities for the exchange of expert opinions and ideas.
