What is Prague Coffee Festival about?
The first ever Prague Coffee Festival took place in 2012. This fall it will celebrate for the sixth time all that is new and exciting on the coffee scene.
Prague Coffee Festival came into existence with the idea of promoting coffee culture and getting-together everyone who is keen on coffee: proffesional baristas, coffeeshop owners, coffee “beginners” and also people who are knowledgeable but want to learn more and more about it.
Recently a lot of attention has been paid to coffee, particularly to specialty coffee and to new brewing techniques which has even become popular among the general public. This fact was positively reflected in greater turnout of the first two years of our festival.
The Festival weekend is filled with tastings, coffeeshop and roastery presentations, workshops, lectures and music programme. The invited guests from abroad will be prepared to share their rich experience during lectures and discussions.
Who organizes the Festival?
Prague Coffee Festival 2016 is organized by NGO Coffee Embassy whose main goal is to promote coffee culture and introduce the topics referring to coffee, its growers,processors and new methods in the industry to the general public.
The team of coffee specialists of the Coffee Embassy consists of ten experienced baristas and is led by Zuzana Černá, Czech Cup Taster Champion 2014 and 2015.
