Ljubljana Coffee Festival 2018
October 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 6, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Ljubljana Coffee Festival is a celebration of growing Specialty Coffee scene in Slovenia and a gift to our capital.
Ljubljana is often described by many travellers as the hidden pearl of Europe. Both its residents and numerous visitors perceive Ljubljana as a city built on a human scale. Despite the fact that it ranks among the mid-sized European cities, it has preserved its small-town friendliness and, at the same time, it has everything that all the larger capitals have.
Almost everything. It doesn’t have coffee festival.
Ljubljana Coffee Festival places Ljubljana on the map alongside the best Specialty Coffee capitals and festivals. Festival is an important cornerstone of the new trend in the coffee industry in Slovenia and is addressed as much to coffee industry or gastronomy professionals, coffee shops owners as to locals and coffee lovers.
Festivals are really important for creating a coffee community in a city and are meant for sharing knowledge about coffee and presenting novelties in the industry. Therefore we are preparing an excellent professional program for lectures in The Lab lecture room, where we will host many well-known-to-industry foreign and local coffee professionals, baristas and roasters. Taste the world best coffees, meet importers and let them take you on a journey of taste discovery and origins; or expand your knowledge with workshops guided by coffee professionals in Sensory Cupping Table room.
Two competitions will also happen, 2nd edition of Latte Art Throwdown and 3rd international multidisciplinary barista tournament Barista Battle Challenge.
During all the program local and foreign coffee roasters will brew their coffee for you to taste, or you could grab some of the best street food in Ljubljana and local beer or cocktails.
