Coffee isn’t just a pick-me up drink. Coffee is intimate conversations, coffee is a yearning, it’s the time you make for yourself, it’s the flavor of life, it’s love.
And once again we Istanbulites will be dedicating four days to coffee with the third Istanbul Coffee Festival set to take place between October 6th and 9th at Küçükçiftlik Park.
The festival will include workshops (from photography and cupping to chocolate tasting and brewing techniques) and seminars (on Turkish coffee, the evolution of coffee brewing, barista education in Turkey, and coffee culture in Turkey). You’ll be able to taste a variety of coffee and watch baristas do their thing at the Artisan Bar, buy coffee from around the world, witness the coffee championship, shop all things related to coffee, watch live performances, and see a specially-curated exhibition. What more could you ask for from a festival?
When: 6-9 October
Where: Küçükçiftlik Park
