New York Coffee Festival

The festival took place this October 13-15 in its new home at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 19th Street). This year’s event included over 100 innovative exhibitors: Bluestone Lane Coffee, Devoción, La Marzocco, Ally Coffee, Califia Farms, Flat Brew, Nobletree, and more.

The three-day festival featured the Coffee Masters NYC barista championship, The Lab program featuring an exciting line-up of interactive demonstrations, educational workshops, talks and tastings, the Coffee Music Project, and the Coffee Art Project, as well as:

  • Latte Art Live, where visitors will be able to learn first-hand how to make beautiful latte art in demonstrations given by some of the best baristas New York City has to offer, as well as guest baristas from around the world.
  • The Village will feature small innovative brands and many new coffee, tea, and artisan food products that have not yet been seen elsewhere.
  • The Coffee Cocktail Bar, which will provide an exciting range of coffee cocktails that will excite even the most casual coffee drinker, let alone coffee diehards.

In addition to offering hundreds of free samples from the highest quality specialty coffee and selected speciatly food brands, The New York Coffee Festival is also the official launch event of charitable Coffee Week NYC™, which promotes the vibrancy of the coffee industry while also raising money for clean water and sanitation projects in coffee producing communities. 50% of all ticket sales will be donated to Project Waterfall with funds directly entrusted to NYC-based charity: water.

Through these donations, Project Waterfall will be able to continue bringing clean water to coffee countries such as Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Rwanda. For more information about charity: water and their recent projects, go to CharityWater.org.

On this year’s festival, Allegra Group CEO, Jeffrey Young shares, “The New York Coffee Festival is back for its third year with more to offer than ever before. Visitors can expect awe-inspiring exhibits, fascinating workshops and talks and delicious street food – all while enjoying as much coffee as they could possibly want!

With 100% of all standard ticket sales going to Project Waterfall, we aim to raise more than $100,000 charitable funds to provide clean drinking water in coffee countries via our local partner charity: water.”
