Coffee, Coffee, Coffee


The New York Coffee Festival is a celebration of the constantly evolving specialty coffee community in New York City, and there's never been a more exciting time to try it. 

With more than 90 exhibitors serving thousands of free coffees samples, your festival ticket is a passport to a journey of taste discovery. From the most exciting commercial machine manufacturers, to innovative, small batch roasters and artisan cafés, the best in the business are joining us for the ride.

Whether you’re a coffee pro or you’re just getting started on your coffee journey, there’s an experience for everyone. Test and train your palette by sampling countless brews, and party alongside New York's top baristas.

Here are four coffee highlights not to miss…

The Brew Bar

Immerse yourself in incredible coffee from home and away with the World Roaster Takeover Series at the brand-new   Brew Bar. Specialty roasters from US favorites to international legends will host take-over sessions showcasing their most exciting single origins and blends.  This is a place of discovery, where the baristas and roasters behind the world's most experimental beans will serve coffee at its very best.

The Machines
Celebrating their ultra-slick machines, La Marzocco is back with The True Artisan Café. Showcasing the machines are expert baristas from the coolest local cafés and roasteries, on hand to offer you an espresso or signature drink. These hand-selected independent roasters and cafés will run take overs of the La Marzocco machines all weekend long.
New-Generation Roasts 
There are plenty of exciting, boundary-pushing roasts on offer this year.  Start by visiting the The Village, where you'll find a series of micro-roasters in amongst other innovative businesses. These are some of the most exciting, experimental beans in town, and who gets to road-test them? You do. Once you've met the personalities behind them, head down to the ground floor and test out some of New York's favourites, like Coffee of Grace and Toby's Estate. Check out all the roasters coming to NYCF here.

Coffee Masters - New York 
Judged by a panel of industry figureheads, the fast-paced knockout battle format of Coffee Masters will see 16 baristas showcase their skills head-to-head across a broad range of disciplines: Cupping, Brewing, Latte Art, The Order, The Signature Drink and The Espresso Blend.  This is your chance to see the best local and international baristas in action and, with a prize of $5,000 and the prestigeous title of Coffee Master - New York on the bar, the stakes are high. Join the crowd for this high-energy, explosive and super entertaining three-day competition.

The Sensory Experience
Building on the success of last year's tasting room, hosted by Jake Leonti of F+B, a new and improved version will return this October. Gather around the cupping table and experience life as a professional taster. These drop-in practical sessions will help you explore your senses and disrupt your perception of flavor. From coffee to chocolate, tea and whisky, compare surprising flavor combinations and get focused.  Tap into your personal taste and awaken a new level of awareness. Share notes with your classmates and debate the bean scene.
