The seventh annual Glasgow Coffee Festival is coming back to the Briggait to be held indoors for the first time in two years.

The two-day event will take place in Dear Green Place, in Glasgow’s city centre, on 7 and 8 May.

The former fish market hall on Bridgegate will host coffee professionals from across the country who will showcase their products, skills and passion to coffee lovers, while being entirely free of single-use cups.

More than 40 exhibitors are expected to take part in the event, including Mossgiel Organic Farm, Modern Standard, Steampunk, Bare Bones and Faodail Roastery.

Glasgow Coffee Festival Founder Lisa Lawson said: ““In Scotland we can often be seen as the underdogs but we should be rightfully proud of the community of coffee professionals who are driving coffee standards forward locally. The skill of our ever-increasing community of roasters and baristas should be celebrated as being on par with some of the best in the world.”

This year, the festival is also supported by Manchester Coffee Festival and Cup North, an organization committed to the development of the speciality coffee industry in the UK.

Tickets cost £12 per session and will include presentations, film screenings, tastings from Olam Specialty, Falcon Specialty and Kamba.
