Sensory School

Brought to you by: 


New for Manchester Coffee Festival 2018! Attendees will be invited to brush up on their sensory skills in a brand new zone brought to the event by Festival Partners, Cimbali. Seasoned coffee professionals will be on hand to guide students through the Sensory School before they embark on a journey navigating tastes and smells within the festival.
