Mark Your Calendars: The Ultimate Caffeine Experience is Back!
Coffee enthusiasts, it’s that time of year again—the New York Coffee Festival returns for its seventh sensational year! From October 6th to 8th, the festival will be brewing up a storm at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Here at Coffee Roast, we’re excited to announce that our editorial team will be attending the festival with a special mission: to find and highlight the innovative microroasters shaping the coffee world.
What’s Brewing at The New York Coffee Festival?
Hosted in the city that never sleeps, this festival is New York City’s premier coffee event. It brings the crème de la crème of the coffee industry, from coffee artisans and aficionados to innovative exhibitors in coffee, tea, and chocolate. This year, attendees can look forward to interactive demonstrations, educational workshops, tastings, and more. The festival will also feature live music, art, and cocktails, promising something for everyone.
Our editorial team is particularly excited about the “Roasters Village,” where the world’s finest coffee roasters will set up shop to serve their unique brews. This is where we aim to discover hidden gems in the micro-roasting community. We’ll be sampling coffees, conducting interviews, and sharing insights from these talented roasters with you.
New Features to Look Out For
This year’s festival promises some intriguing new features:
- Cocktail Masterclass: Led by industry experts, this masterclass offers a golden opportunity to learn the art of cocktail making from world-class mixologists.
- Latte Art Tournament: Watch baristas from around the world compete to create the most intricate latte art for a cash prize of $1,000.
And of course, let’s not forget the festival’s commitment to social responsibility. All profits will be donated to NYC-based Charity: water, in partnership with Project Waterfall, aimed at providing clean water to coffee-growing regions.

The editorial team at Coffee Roast is committed to bringing you the latest trends, innovations, and most importantly—the people behind the perfect brew.
