Manchester Coffee Festival & Tamper Tantrum 

Our partnership with Tamper Tantrum has formed a key part of our identity as a festival. It was important to us when we set out on our coffee festival adventures in 2014 that we developed a host partnership with someone that shared our ideals. Four years on from our first event together and we're preparing for another fantastic event! The format for Tamper Tantrum at MCF has changed somewhat as we have grown and boy have we got some exciting plans for 2017. It's obviously very early days so we can't say much, but we can confirm that TT will be back with Brubiaceae & Bar as well as an evening panel discussion for those who want to kick back, relax, and have a bit of a giggle after hitting the show floor. More information on these–and some new programming–coming soon!

A word from Festival Sponsor – Cimbali

“Manchester Coffee Festival is always one of my favourite events of the year, the Northern coffee scene is growing massively and the atmosphere at Manchester Coffee Festival gets better each year. Tamper Tantrum always brings a good variety of topics to challenge and inspire, provoking thoughts around the venue to always question what we do and why. Through Manchester Coffee Festival I have met many new coffee friends and am proud to be a part of it all!”
