Manchester Coffee Festival is an independent coffee festival aimed at educating consumers on the value of speciality coffee and other related markets.

What can you expect?

We gather a broad range of coffee businesses under one roof to showcase exactly what they do on a daily basis to you, the inquisitive public. A vast majority of the companies involved are coffee roasters who don't often get the chance to face the public in this way – Manchester Coffee Festival gives them the opportunity to engage with consumers who visit the festival. We want festival goers to leave the event feeling educated and informed on coffee so we also provide a program of coffee tastings; workshops; a chance to brew with the pro's; observe the finals of national coffee competitions and sample all the espresso you can handle!

For those less interested in coffee or perhaps you don't get along too well with caffeine, do not fear! We usually have a handful of tea traders signed up for the festival alongside artisan chocolate suppliers and chai tea specialists! We'll also make sure that you don't go hungry with a range of local food traders on hand throughout.

Manchester Coffee Festival 2017 takes place from 4-5 November at Victoria Warehouse – a beautiful old Manchester building that we're very happy to be returning to for a third consecutive year. It's also important to us that families are most welcome to the event where there is something to do for everyone.
