The team behind the world’s largest coffee gatherings will present The Cape Town Coffee Festival from 24 - 25 February 2018 at City Hall. Based on highly successful programmes in London, New York and Amsterdam, this caffeinated event is compulsory for all serious coffee lovers and those working in the coffee industry.

The first ever edition of the festival will bring baristas, roasters, chefs and coffee aficionados together for a two-day event that will bring a distinctly South African spin to some of the top hits and new additions from this globetrotting festival concept. Festival-goers will enjoy live experiences from coffee, food and equipment suppliers, bottomless free coffee tastings, interactive workshops, demonstrations from world-class baristas, delectable street food, coffee cocktails, live music and art - all while raising money for clean water and sanitation projects in coffee producing communities. 100% of all profits will be donated to Project Waterfall - a charity initiative that works to provide clean water and sanitation to coffee growing regions.

The Cape Town Coffee Festival Features:

Latte Art Live will showcase incredible milk-based artistry. This experiential area enables visitors to take part in 30 minute, hands-on workshops and demonstration to learn techniques and skills required to create jaw-dropping masterpieces. Get ready to learn the tricks of the trade from the top baristas and coffee roasters in Cape Town.

The Lab is the educational component of the festival. For those looking to learn as well as be amazed - expect interactive demonstrations, workshops, talks and tasting from industry experts. Topics from past and current programmes around the world have included: Coffee Education 101, The Role of Mixology for the Contemporary Coffee Shop, chocolate tasting workshops and much more.

CMx is a fast-paced, multi-disciplinary, global barista tournament that will be first held at The Cape Town Coffee Festival 2018. The winner will win R10,000 cash and an all-expenses paid trip to London to compete against the world's top baristas for the prestigious title of Coffee Master at The London Coffee Festival 2018.

The Coffee Art Project is a mixed media art competition that welcomes emerging and established artists; entries are required to show personal connection to the concept of 'coffee', or a 'coffee shop experience'.

The Coffee Music Project is a high profile singer-songwriter competition that showcases emerging musicians. Competition finalists will perform their winning songs at the festival alongside DJs and other live acts on the festival's Music Stage.
