Independent Barcelona Coffee Festival 2018
October 11 @ 8:00 am - October 13 @ 5:00 pmFree – €100
The festival that celebrates speciality coffee culture is back and consolidated with its third edition!
IBCF is back to Espacio88 on October 11th, 12th and 13th with more cuppings, more talks, more workshops, more professional networking and, of course, with more coffee.
In its third consecutive edition and after having +6.000 attendees in 2017, IBCF keeps the objective of approaching speciality coffee to the coffee consumers that are not familiar with it yet. Also, for the first time ever, the event will have two whole days aimed at the professionals of the industry: roasters, importers, coffee shop owners, baristas and all the actors involved in the speciality coffee chain value.
Among the confirmations that will make this IBCF edition a major event this Autumn, we have top-level names like Klaus Thomsen, owner of The Coffee Collective and world barista champion 2006, that will fly from Copenhagen to talk about direct trade, the procedure for which the Danish coffee business is known.
On these first-class confirmations, IBCF will also have Morgan Love, owner of Silo Coffee —the well-known coffee shop and brunch restaurant— and Krésten Thøgersen, the former barista in the popular Melbourne coffee shop Proud Mary and current owner of Father Carpenter Coffee. They will fly from Berlin to talk about many topics, including their new joint coffee roasting project Fjord Coffee Roasters.
Also, this edition will have espresso and brew bars, some of the best local food projects and a whole day for enthusiastic or curious people that want to try and experience the fascinating world of speciality coffee.
The entrance for the public on Saturday is free of charge, while the professional days, Thursday and Friday, are ticketed and priced between 70 and 100 euros.
