Caffè Culture Features
Caffè Culture is an information-led event that offers an extensive feature programme which has been designed in partnership with our Steering Committee to inspire and stimulate visitors from all sectors of the industry.
The Roaster's Forum
An interactive and educational feature aimed at the emerging artisan and micro roasting scene. Showcasing farmers from leading specialty regions, green bean suppliers right through to roasting, grinding and packaging equipment manufacturers, The Roasting Room will also have a dedicated programme of talks and demos from some of Europe’s leading coffee roasters.
The Victoria Arduino Experience
Do you work in the coffee industry? Or are you an enthusiast who has honed your skills brewing and drinking in your kitchen? Challenge your taste buds and knowledge of coffee by taking part in the Victoria Arduino Experience brought to you by VA Machinery, a new multi sensory feature coming to Caffè Culture for 2019. Multiple challenges, all based around controllable variables, but only one correct answer. Taste, judge and experience it for yourself, for the chance to win prizes from Victoria Arduino."
As part of our Talks Programme, ‘Coffee Studies (2019)’ will bring together an eclectic and distinguished mix of specialty coffee experts, sharing their personal insights and opinions in a ‘Ted’ style format. With an equally impressive line-up, the ‘Caffè Business’ and ‘Start Up’ Theatres complete the programme by revealing the essential steps to building and expanding businesses of all sizes and at different stages of their respective journeys.
