NEW FOR 2021 – come and taste some sublime speciality coffees brewed expertly by 3Temp in Caffe Culture’s new Batch Brew Bar

For those looking for a more in-depth sensory experience at Caffè Culture this year, a specialty coffee Brew Bar has been launched in partnership with prominent Swedish brewer 3TEMP, whose aim is to transform the way we think about, and profile, batch brew coffee on their revolutionary Hipster Brewer. 

Hosting some of the UK’s most talented coffee roasters, all visitors will be given the opportunity to test their palates by exploring the frontiers of brewing - in a unique, fun-filled setting! In the format of a knockout competition across both days of Caffè Culture, each of the six shortlisted roasters will be profiling and brewing their coffees and serving it to event attendees, with different briefs for the semis and finals. Attendees will get to vote for their favourite brews, with the two roastery finalists duelling it out head-to-head on the Friday. The winning brew will then have the honour of being incorporated into a delicious cocktail designed by an award-winning mixologist and coffee expert. 

If that wasn’t all, 3TEMP will also be demonstrating the functionality and versatility of the Brewers in some ad-hoc educational events during Caffè Culture – so if you’ve always been interested in the science of coffee, be sure to head on down to the Brew Bar – and vote with your cup!

The Competition

BREW-OFF Competition: knockout competition between 6 different coffee roasters over the two days of Caffe Culture.
