The 'largest coffee festival in Scotland' is back after last year's sell-out success.

The Glasgow Coffee Festival brings together some of the top names in the city's caffeine scene for one weekend only.

Event organisers at Dear Green Coffee Roasters are gearing up for the "biggest coffee festival Scotland has ever seen" with two days filled to the brim with "cuppings, tastings, workshops, baristas, and more."

The festival will take place at The Briggait on May 13th and 14th, with tickets going on sale today, February 23.

Tickets cost £14 per person and include presentations, tasting, and lots of coffee. Profits from the event will be donated to charity.

Last year, attendees helped to raise over £8,000 to support the humanitarian effort in Ukraine.

Registration is open for sponsors and stallholders, with big names Us V Them, Mayze, and La Marzocco already signed up.

The event is partnered with KeepCup and will be completely single-use cup free.

Lisa Lawson, the founder of Dear Green and the organiser of the festival, described the event as a show of "resilience" for the coffee industry in the wake of the cost-of-living crisis.

She said: “This is a celebration of Scotland’s coffee community which has continued to thrive through all the challenges it faces, from Brexit to Covid and now rising utility bills.

“The coffee industry in Scotland is incredibly creative and resilient, and we’re very proud to be part of it."

“Each year, there’s more demand for the festival as Scotland’s coffee community grows, and more coffee-curious people become coffee lovers."

Lisa added that she hoped the festival would inspire people to support small businesses in the coffee industry.

She said: "Hopefully the festival will encourage even more people to swap their visit to a big chain for an independent coffee shop, which serves coffee by independent roasters and supports the local economy.

“Last year’s festival was the biggest ever, and this year we’ll have a lot more events throughout the weekend.

"It’s shaping up to be the biggest coffee festival Scotland has ever seen.

"We’re very excited to share news of the full calendar of events in the coming weeks and we’re proud to give a platform to Scotland’s coffee businesses to reach a new audience.”
