London Coffee Festival 2018!
This week sees the London Coffee Festival making its way back to the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch. This year myself and Gabriel were lucky enough to drag ourselves away from our desks and the workshop to attend.
The festival offers a smorgasbord of specialty coffees to try, barista competitions to ogle, coffee producers to talk to. Below is a selection of photographs of us in action for you to enjoy. And if you get a chance to visit the festival, we would thoroughly recommend it!

P.S. If you don't come away jittering from a caffeine overdose then you haven't done it right.
Girls Who Grind: An all female small batch coffee roastery based in south-west England. They source specialty coffees from female producers and those who work to support them.

12 Onzas: A family run coffee farm in Guatemala (not far from the stunning Antigua). The guys at 12 Onzas also process and sell their coffee in a cafe in Guatemala City, and are beginning to sell in Europe. So be sure to look out for their delicious coffee.

Origin: One of the fullest bodied espressos I have ever tried. This Geisha (La Negrita) from Colombia was truly an amazing specialty coffee, with an extremely interesting flavour profile. Definitely one to try!
