New for 2019! We are delighted to announce details of the launch of two major new features. Loring Smart Roast and Victoria Arduino have partnered with Caffè Culture to create two original and unique visitor attractions.

The Victoria Arduino Experience

Presenting an impressive selection of the UK’s best specialty coffee roasters, The Victoria Arduino Experience promises to deliver delicious coffee and heighten your senses by challenging your understanding of how it travels from bean to cup.

Showcasing patented technology from Victoria Arduino to highlight some of the many variables in brewing espresso, all that stands between you and some fantastic prizes is your taste buds and nerves of steel.

Visitors will be set a number of challenges, including ‘Can you tell the difference between espresso brewed at 89deg and 94deg? Does soft water vs hard water really affect the final flavour? At what speed should I grind my coffee beans for maximum flavour?

These and many more questions will be asked, but only you can provide the answers.

The Victoria Arduino Experience roasters include: Square Mile, Taylor Street Baristas, Rave Coffee, Plot Roasting, Assembly Coffee, Aviator Coffee, Climpson & Sons, Moon Roast, Root & Branch, Kokoa Collection & Exmouth Coffee.

The Roaster’s Forum

‘The Roasters Forum’ – proudly sponsored by Loring Coffee Roasters UK and green bean partner Volcafe Select, has been tailored to cover topics suggested by our community of roasters of all sizes throughout the UK.

The concept of the Forum is to offer a varied program of educational and interactive sessions for those involved in the coffee roasting industry who want to learn more about this sector. It will include a series of talks and live demonstrations by leading roasters and green bean specialists as well as a Loring roast master – all of whom will bring valuable insight to the many complexities surrounding a modern roastery in today’s market.

As a new and exclusive feature at Caffè Culture, the aim is to create an annual Forum that offers the opportunity to share knowledge, network with likeminded roasters and learn from an esteemed selection of industry professionals.


This year’s Caffè Culture will stage a highly engaging and informative talks programme delivered by a host of leading industry experts, to cater for the specific business needs of all types of operations. The three-streamed programme will provide the necessary tools and know-how to not only launch successful businesses but also flourish in an ever-increasing competitive market.

Coffee Studies (2019)

Coffee Studies 2019 looks to continue from the success of its inaugural year in 2018. This year we continue with the fresh and engaging TED style format covering four primary themes from supply and value chain organisation, business innovation, consumer insights, and the virtues of the broader ‘speciality coffee’ community.

Each talk delivered conveys relevance and expertise through the lens of real business and personal stories followed by a discussion with panelists selected for their experience in the same field and possible conflicting points of view.

This year we are excited to host a line-up of local and international speakers and panelists which will be officially announced over the coming weeks.

Caffe Start Up

If you are in the process of launching or have recently opened your first coffee shop, the Caffe Start Up Programme will provide fledgling business owners with the opportunity to learn first-hand from a host of successful operators. Hear personal and engaging accounts from those who have both failed and ultimately succeeded and what they learned along the way.

Caffe Business

The Caffe Business Programme is aimed at owners and senior management from the multiples, chains and non-specialist sectors. Delivered by a host of leading UK’s experts, the programme will cover topics such as how to scale-up your business, raising investment, building customer loyalty through to training and retaining the best people for your business.


Competitions galore!

We are delighted to be hosting a full programme of tea and coffee competitions. Come and see the London heats of the SCA’s UKBC and Cup Taster’s Championships along with the inaugural Tea Brewers Championships, which is being run by the UK Tea Academy. Soak up the drama as each competitor is judged and put through their paces in front of a live audience across two full days of competitions.


We are proud to have the support of some of the biggest brands in the business, with 100’s of new and innovative products being showcased, our 2019 line-up is the best yet. Here is a flavour of who you can expect to see at this year’s show; for a full list of exhibitors visit
