You are currently viewing Glasgow Coffee Festival scheduled for May

The Glasgow Coffee Festival is set to return to The Briggait on 13 and 14 May for what organisers Dear Green Coffee Roasters say will be the “biggest coffee festival Scotland has ever seen”.

Tickets cost £14 per session and the price covers presentations, tastings, and plenty of coffee.

Last year’s event was a sell-out, with more than 2,400 people attending.

Registrations are open for sponsors and stallholders, with La Marzocco, Us V Them, Oatly and Mayze already signed-up.

As has been the case since 2018, the festival will be completely single-use cup free, something which is expected to help save more than 30,000 cups from landfill this year, thanks to a partnership with KeepCup.

Profits from this year’s festival will be donated to charity. Last year, attendees helped to raise over £8,000 to support the humanitarian effort in Ukraine.

Event organiser and Dear Green founder Lisa Lawson (pictured) said: “This is a celebration of Scotland’s coffee community which has continued to thrive through all the challenges it faces: from Brexit to Covid and now rising utility bills.

“Hopefully the festival will encourage even more people to swap their visit to a big chain for an independent coffee shop, which serves coffee by independent roasters and supports the local economy.”
