London’s Business Design Centre is hosting Caffè Culture, the leading trade event for the United Kingdom’s coffee and café market, on Monday, October 28, and Tuesday, October 29. Thousands of professionals are expected to attend the event, which features two sought-after coffee competitions for tasters and baristas, and a new competition for tea brewers.

The U.K. Barista Championship tests baristas on their routines and customer service, while the U.K. Cup Tasters Championship will allow tasters to sip on four sets of triangle tests. Meanwhile, on the tea side, the Tea Brewers Champion introduces itself with testing competitors by challenging them to make an original creation demonstrating their skills.

A program of several talks and demos will be at The Roasting Room, with sessions including “Women in Coffee” and “Data Sustainability in Coffee Supply Chains.”

For professionals hoping to improve profits in their businesses, “The Coffee Shop Profits Workshop” will be hosted by John Richardson, who has established over 13 different hospitality businesses and is regularly on television as a coffee shop expert. This three-hour workshop is still selling tickets, and promises to explore how to increase sales in 12 weeks.

This is the 13th year for the show, which was created to celebrate the thousands of branded and independent coffee shops in the United Kingdom.
