Coffee Island, the “coffee nerds” from Greece with a new shop in central London, are introducing their new Microfarm Project® during the London Coffee Festival. The Microfarm Project® is a specialty variety selected and traded directly from the best coffee cultures around the world. The novelty this season is the El Salvador Pacamara, an elegant and sweet variety that brings floral aroma and flavor in a creamy full body. Coffee Island’s expert baristas will also be serving its delicious Espresso Specialty Blend, an intense, silky, acidic and sweet beverage.

Visitors to the London Coffee Festival will be able to pick up the special ‘Taste our Blend, Treat a Friend’ offer of TWO FOR ONE voucher which can be retrieved until 10 May 2017 at the shop, located on 5 Upper St. Martin’s Lane.

Coffees at the festival will be brewed with the VA388 Black Eagle (the 2015-2017 World Barista Championship official espresso machine) and will be offered in different temperatures to show the importance of consistency in the cup and how a little change in temperature can affect the flavour.

This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a pleasurable cupping session. The expert baristas on-site will also be available for interviews about coffee quality and the Microfarm Project®.
