Do you feel that your day never begins until you’ve had that first cup freshly brewed coffee in the morning? Does the thought of a well made flat white or the smell of an espresso get you out of bed on dismal Monday mornings?

Then there’s a festival this coming weekend that you must absolutely attend! The London Coffee Festival runs from Friday, 8th April till Sunday 10th April, promising a weekend of nirvana for coffee aficionados. And even if you’re not that crazy about coffee, its probably worth attending to find out more abut coffee. After all, if you’re going to be drinking countless cups of coffees over the months and years, why not learn a bit about what makes a great brew?

Held at the Old Truman Brewery near Brick Lane and Spitalfields, there will be over 50 stands and stalls at The London Coffee Festival, making it arguably the biggest congregation of coffee purveyors in London. A combination of high street cafes (such as Costa and Starbucks) as well as independent cafes (such as Monkshood Coffee and AllPress Espresso Roastery) will be there. Coffee machine suppliers such as DeLonghi and Lavazza will be there too – in case you were after a home solution to your coffee cravings. For the full list of companies that will be there, click here.

Not into coffee? Don’t worry, there’s also a whole range of other stalls at The London Coffee Festival, including Teapigs with their unique pyramid shaped teabgs, as well as Fudge Kitchen for sweet tooths and Innocent Drinks.

The best thing about The London Coffee Festival? While the tickets cost £8.50, 100% of the proceeds from the ticket sales will be going to Project Waterfall, a charity which aims to provide clean water solutions to the various African countries that produce coffee like Kenya.
