The Vienna Coffee Festival is an annual tradition for the Espressolutions team, and a great opportunity to discover new treasures in the generous universe of coffee. Here you can find specialty coffee from all around the world, the craftsmanship of local and international coffee roasters, uprising baristi, and our personal favorite: the tools and accessories that transform the act of coffee preparation into an expression of art and precision.
For its 5th edition, the Vienna Coffee Festival will renew its invitation for the welcoming community of coffee passionates to get informed about the latest trends in the world of coffee by attending masterclasses and workshops featuring leading baristi, and taste specialty coffee, exquisite drinks and food, all with live music in the background. Inspiration seekers can watch the uprising professional baristi showcasing their skills during the Barista, Latte Art, Brewers Cup, Cup Tasting and Coffee in Good Spirits competitions that will ensure the winners places in the SCA World Championships 2020 in Warsaw and Melbourne.

Event Highlights for 2020
Last year we enjoyed together exquisite blends of coffee and vodka, and the company of our roaster friends during the True Artisan Cafe program, and collected insights from our fellow coffee makers about their coffee preferences, summarized in an interactive infographic.
This year we are going to expand our event activity with the aim of delivering our guests and visitors a superior coffee experience under the La Marzocco-inspired theme called Straight into Vienna.
Curious minds can watch the tools set into motion by specialty coffee roasters at the traditional True Artisan Cafè sessions for the entire weekend. Together with our partners at Andraschko, we are setting up the Ultimate Workflow for our 8 guests roasters who will introduce you to their finest notes:
- Fürth Kaffee
- Trevo Coffee Roastery
Additionally to the La Marzocco tools, our Ultimate Workflow setup will include professional accessories and tools from Artemis, Etzinger, Milkit, Perfect Moose, Puqpress and more. You can test and taste their precision and efficiency at our La Marzocco-Espressolutions booth no. 21, located on the 4th floor.
One of the most awaited moments of the event is the Village of Specialty Coffee, which will unfold during the entire weekend, on the 5th floor. This is a dedicated place for coffee roasters to present unique flavors, as well as their practices of sustainability and the colorful range of quality specific to different coffee farmers. The action is supported by La Marzocco and curated by Werner Savernik from Coffee Pirates Vienna, featuring some of the best roasters in Austria:
- 25 Grams
- Die Rösterin
- Felix Kaffee
- Gota Coffee
- Himmel’s Kaffee
- Süssmund Kaffee
- Valentini Kaffee
- Zalvera Estate Coffee.
