Manchester Coffee Festival


We are an independent coffee festival that opens up the world of speciality coffee and makes it accessible to everyone.

We gather a broad range of coffee businesses under one roof to showcase exactly what they do on a daily basis.

Most of the companies involved are coffee roasters who don't often get the chance to face the public in this way – Manchester Coffee Festival gives you an opportunity for a rare look behind the scenes and a chat with the experts.

We also pride ourselves on bringing you a packed program including coffee tastings, workshops, a chance to brew with the pro's, the finals of national coffee competitions and plenty of opportunities to sample all the espresso you can handle!

When you need a break from all that caffeine, why not meet some specialist tea traders, taste a bit of artisan chocolate, or grab a snack from one of our local food traders?

It's really important to us that the whole family feel welcome at the festival and so we always make sure there’s plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy.
