Start spreading the ‘quarries: The Cincinnati Coffee Festival returns this fall with all the coffee and brownies you could possibly want.
The Cincinnati Coffee Festival returns to the Music Hall on Saturday and Sunday, October 21-22, for its sixth year. Organizers say the festival, which raises funds for the Ohio River Foundation (ORF), has become the premier coffee event in the Midwest.
“ORF is the only regional conservation organization working to protect and improve the ecology of the Ohio River and its rivers and streams. Coffee has a natural connection to this mission. Without great water, you won’t get great coffee,” the foundation said in a release.
Every year, thousands visit the festival to get to know the variety of coffee producers, tea suppliers, bakeries, pastry shops and chocolatiers. Popular local roasters like Seven Hills Coffee, Deeper Roots and two-time People’s Choice Award winner FigBrew will also be on hand.
Events include Latte Art Throwdown and Latte Art in Action, where you can watch a master barista create latte art and learn how to pour yourself. There will also be demonstrations and presentations from industry experts, a ‘chopping’ station where you can learn how to taste coffee like a pro and live music.
More details about the event will be announced in the coming months and tickets will go on sale in the summer. Sales will benefit ORF’s efforts to protect and preserve the Ohio River watershed.
Vendor applications are still available here.
