SATURDAY 19 MAY + SUNDAY 20 MAY 2018
A celebration of the growing specialty coffee culture in Scotland with a TWO day event showcasing the passion for quality coffee in our Scottish coffee community!
The festival featured coffee exhibitors, cafes, roasters, baristas, masterclasses, workshops, presentations and demonstrations!
The UK Brewers Cup, sanctioned by the SCA UK, was hosted at the festival.
Visitors met coffee professionals as well as sipping and slurped their way around the carefully chosen gathering of roasters baristas, artists, brewers and bars whilst viewing competitions, art, film and photography!
They could watch national coffee competitions, learn latte art, enjoy a ‘cupping’ experience, upgrade their home brewing kit, all in one day under one roof with coffee bars, beans, baristas and brewers!
The Glasgow Coffee Festival will be held in the grandeur of the public hall at the Briggait. The building was originally Glasgow’s fish market acting as a hub for business for over 100 years. Recently renovated to create a hub for business and culture it is the perfect central location to bring Scottish coffee aficionados together to promote their products. The venue is a short walk from major transport links and plenty of parking nearby make this an ideal choice.
We’d recommend purchasing tickets in advance as last festival was a sell out!
Yes, there are 3 car parks within a few minutes walking distance.
Ticket price includes general admission, one hot drink and prize draw entry.
Yes. And accompanied under 12s enter free. We even have a face painter and farmer Bryce of Mossgiel Farm is bringing one of his ‘girls’.
This year we’re inviting you to bring your own cup to Glasgow Coffee Festival. We’re excited to announce that disposable cups will not be available at this year’s event, saving thousands of cups from landfill. Cool, huh?!
