This year’s Caffe Culture will see several major brands joining the show focusing on all areas of the UK’s artisan roaster’s scene. Loring Smart Roast and Victoria Arduino have partnered with show organiser’s Living Media Events to create two original and unique visitor attractions at Caffe Culture, which takes place at London’s iconic Business Design Centre on October 28th & 29th.  

Sponsored by Loring Smart Roast, ‘The Roaster’s Forum’ is an educational and interactive program that will cater for those already involved in the coffee roasting industry to those thinking about becoming a roaster. Through a series of talks and live demonstrations, visitors will gain an invaluable insight from farmers and producers from leading specialty regions right through to Europe’s leading coffee roasters, who will all be sharing their expertise.   

Steve Penk – DMA UK, who represents Loring Smart Roast throughout the UK and Ireland  –  comments, Loring Smart Roast are delighted to be sponsoring and supporting the new “Roasters Forum” at Caffé Culture 2019. With the ever-increasing focus on the science of roasting in the UK speciality sector, it seems only logical for Loring Smart Roast to get involved in a forum for the speciality roasters. An interesting and diverse program of events will be created that roasters, barista’s and coffee shop owners alike can find something of interest giving them a compelling reason to attend Caffé Culture 2019.” 

Other leading industry manufacturers taking part in The Roaster’s Forum include - Mahlkönig, Ditting, Anfim, La Spaziale, Hey Café, Fetco and PuqPress

Fulfilling the show’s holistic roasters offering, ‘The Victoria Arduino Experience’ will be a multi-sensory set of challenges designed to test the taste buds of inquisitive novices right through to refined coffee connoisseurs. Hosted by a selection of the UK’s finest roasters, The Victoria Arduino Experience will focus on the key variables in areas such as water, technology, extraction and origin and will give successful participants the chance to win some fantastic prizes.  

MD Peter Garcia at VA Machinery comments “We are thrilled to be showcasing the Victoria Arduino Experience at this year's Caffe Culture event. After the success of last year's relaunch, we definitely wanted to be involved in a more hands-on manner and work closely with the Caffe Culture team to bring our new feature to life." 

Full information about Victoria Arduino’s challenges and the speakers headlining the Roaster’s Forum programme is being finalised and will be released in the coming weeks.
