The Dublin Coffee and Tea Festival is back at the Industries Hall in the RDS, running from 11th to 13th September.
From harvesting to brewing, artisan catering to equipment, the Dublin Coffee and Tea Festival will showcase every aspect of the coffee and tea world and all the enjoyment that goes with it.
The festival, dedicated to celebrating all that’s new and exciting on the coffee and tea scene, will include a Roaster’s Village, housing a vast range of coffee and tea micro roasters and retailers.
There will also be a Food Village, offering a range of hand-picked artisan food and beverage suppliers whose products complement the coffee and tea drinking experience, and the People’s Stage, which will showcase a range of video footage and live presentations.
The SCAE Brew School will allow attendees to discover different brewing methods and will also run an exciting programme of interactive demonstration.
The National Home Barista Competition will allow home baristas to demonstrate their skills and compete in front of an audience and the winner will take home a Linea Mini Home Espresso machine worth €4,000.
The festival will also have plenty to do and see when it comes to entertainment, and the outdoor stage will host a variety of top music acts.
This year’s exhibitors include Baobab Coffee Roasters, Alpro, Bewleys, The Coffee and Tea Academy Ireland, De Longhi, Insomnia, Java Republic, Niks Tea and many more.
