Now in its second year, The New York Coffee Festival has rapidly become a premier event in the global coffee scene, drawing thousands of serious food and coffee lovers, as well as industry stakeholders from all over the world.
What makes this such a standout event? Well, for one, the entertainment, food, and coffee gear are primo quality. A ticket (available to all), not just coffee professionals, drops you down a rabbit hole, and into an Alice in Wonderland-esque world of gorgeous art, upmarket gadgets, luscious eats, slammin’ music, and of course ridiculously good, limitless, free coffee.
For those looking for the next ingenious thing in brewing, there is a plethora of innovative, high and low tech designs, many of which are functional works of art, and have yet to be raked over by the eyes of the general public. You don’t have to take time out of your schedule to demo the performance of devices at various locations in the city, or abroad. Instead, spend your time wisely and leisurely, In One Place, checking out the apparatuses you want up close, gloriously grinding and brewing away. Yes… you can touch, taste, and even smell the merchandise. Wouldn’t you like to determine in person if Rancilio’s Rocky, the ultra efficient burr grinder is really THAT quiet? Or if Truth Coffee lives up to its tagline “Flavor not bitterness”?
New to the festival this year is Brooklyn based, Walter’s Coffee Roastery, the first coffee “laboratory specializing in daily roasted coffee.” Founded in Istanbul’s historic neighborhood of Moda, they cater to those who appreciate their caffeine slung by professionals, who “have coffee down to a science.”
*The New York Coffee Festival is also the “official launch event of charitable Coffee Week NYC™, which promotes the vibrancy of the coffee industry while raising money for clean water and sanitation projects in coffee producing communities.” (50% of all ticket sales will be donated to Project Waterfall).
