You’re invited to join us in celebrating Manchester’s independent coffee scene over two big days – and so is your favourite reusable cup.

One of the aims of the 2018 Manchester Coffee Festival is to enjoy lots of great coffee, without producing lots of waste. So we’ve joined forces with KeepCup to help reduce the number of disposable cups used during the event.

Do you have your own reusable cup? Whether it’s a KeepCup or your favourite porcelain cup, bring it along! We’ll also have KeepCups available for purchase on the day, for you to use at the event and take home with you to use over and over again.

KeepCup see sustainability as a journey, not a destination to be reached – which we think is a pretty cool way to look at it. We’re excited about taking steps this year to reduce the number of disposable cups used at our event, with the aim to go completely disposable free next year. How good will that be!

Planning on joining us? Don’t forget to get social on the day and tag your reusable cups #reusableMCF

Here's what you'll find in place at the festival. 

1). KeepCup are providing cups so you can put a deposit down to use a reusable cup when you arrive, and when you leave, you can return the cup for free or pick up the lid and keep the cup at no extra cost . The deposit scheme is £5 – cash only.

2). La Marzocco will have a dedicated "disposable free" zone at the festival.

3). Espresso Solutions will provide wash stations for your cups around the event.

4). And we are encouraging all of you to bring your own reusable cup with you too. If you forget then there’s no need to worry (see KeepCup point 1).

We can’t wait to see you with your reusable coffee cups in November!
