7 - 8th September 2018

 The Passenger Shed, Bristol



Bristol's First Coffee Festival 

The Coffee House Project is the first of its kind in Bristol. A caffeine-fuelled celebration of the best the city has to offer, this two day coffee festival focuses on local, artisan roasters, independent food and drink retailers and home-grown baristas. With up to 50 exhibitors, workshops and talks, a two-day barista competition hosted by the SCA UK, plus gourmet street food and DJ's, no other event captures Bristol’s vibrant coffee scene in quite the same way.

Trade guests and coffee lovers will be treated to a day-time session on Friday, before festivities get underway with The Coffee House Project’s official launch party. Espresso martinis, craft beers and local spirits will be the order of the night.

The festival continues through Saturday, giving exhibitors and sponsors unprecedented access to dedicated visitors, influencers and key industry stakeholders all brought together under one roof through their mutual love of coffee.
