Time to wake up, New York – the New York Coffee Festival is making its way back to the Metropolitan Pavilion. Held from October 12-14, the festival will host the biggest names in coffee from around the country, all ready to dose patrons with excessive amounts of caffeine.
All the best roasters will be there: Stumptown, Devocion, Coffee of Grace, Joe Coffee, Toby’s Estate, Variety, the list goes on and on. There will also be coffee-related partners out there, such as Oatly (one of the best non-dairy milks out there) and La Marzocco (who killed it with the coolest booth presentation last year). The Coffee Masters New York competition will be going on as well for those hardcore coffee people who want to watch baristas knock out insane skills. Whether you’re a coffee pro or just a plain coffee addict, you’ll find something to suit you here – everyone can enjoy endless samples, new products, and all the coolest coffee gadgets out on the market.
The best part is 100% of ticket profits will be donated to Project Waterfall, an organization devoted to bringing clean water to coffee producing countries. Tickets and more info can be found on the event’s official website. Pro tip: save your morning coffee for the festival or you’ll jitter so hard you’ll regret it. We covered last year’s festival too – check it out!
