Northern Ireland’s first ever Coffee Festival will take place at T13 in The Titanic Quarter, Belfast over September 26-27.

The event is the brainchild of Roger Gowdy and Deepak Samson, self confessed coffee lovers, as a celebration of the vibrant coffee culture in Northern Ireland, and will also play host to Northern Ireland’s Barista Championship 2015.

Ryan Watson, a barista at Belfast’s Miel et Moi Licensed Patisserie, will be among competitors for the coveted prize of a trip to Italy.
Chris Lyttle, MLA for the Alliance Party, welcomed the creation of NI Coffee Festival and said: “This event will undoubtedly attract tourists to the city and simultaneously celebrate and promote independent companies.”
