We have been getting more and more excited on the countdown to our London Coffee Festival debut! Between 7th and 10th April, we will be on Stand B26 at The Old Truman Brewery with the most exciting people in the coffee industry.

You will love the booklets we have put together aimed at helping the fledgling coffee bar owner as well as the well-established veteran owner, as you know it's never too late to learn something new. Please pop over to our stand for a chat.

The show is an amazing cacophony of sights, sound and smells, with coffee being roasted and brewed in every nook and cranny.

The festival is in its 6th year and in that time has tripled in size and attracted 5 times as many visitors than back in 2010.

As well as the celebration of all things coffee, the coffee masters competition, the semi-finals of the UK barista Championship and the UK Brewers cup are being held there during the four days. Combine that with a Martini Disco night and street food area, it has the makings of a day you will remember for a long time.

The big chains will be there but the festival really belongs to the fast growing independent sector, so you can be guaranteed to find something interesting in amongst the hipster beards. Our prediction for this year's big trend is Cold Brew coffee so we are really interested to see the emerging brands up close.

The London Coffee Festival is unusual as it combines the trade with the public, as the first two days are reserved for the coffee industry with the public getting access for the last two, so there will be a wonderful vibe for the whole time.
