Here we go, Athens Coffee Festival is back!Stefania Christou
The 1st day of Athens coffee festival was full of aromas, tastes, smiles, meetings, and happenings.
Thousands of visitors enjoyed their coffee, tried cold brew and nitro, discovered coffee varieties from all over the world, got to know excellent quality organic coffee proposals, watched with interest the coffee experts in the Coffee masterclasses and of course won rich prizes. The first day of the Athens Coffee Festival left the best and most aromatic… impressions! Owners, managers, and baristas from coffee businesses from all over Greece who flooded Technopolis, saw up close at the exhibitors’ booths a huge range of specialty coffee, were informed about the new equipment and techniques that dominate this period while they discussed with the representatives of the espresso machine companies who presented and got ideas for techniques that can renew the facilities and service level of their business. At the same time, in a festive mood, the 100 exhibitors presented their products to the public, the baristas at each stand gave the necessary information to the visitors and informed them about the different varieties they had to choose from, while there were also many coffee happenings and events that took place at the exhibitors’ stands such as coffee tastings, coffee seminars and many others.

Once more, Coffee Masterclasses left the best impression. Athens Coffee Festival hosted the first day important seminars and specialized presentations on coffee, sparking the interest of consumers and professionals. Of course, Coffee Masterclasses will continue tomorrow, with a different cycle of speeches. >>
Another parallel event of the festival where there was a lot of action all day long was the SCA Greece’s Greek Roasting Championship. The main stage was full of music and energy. Festival visitors had the opportunity to dance and sing – while drinking their coffee – as today the festival stage hosted the popular band 48 Hours.
