Coffee lovers in Scotland are being urged to book their tickets for the Capital’s
own coffee festival on Saturday, 14 October, the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh.
The event is expected to bring together 3,000 coffee lovers, 40 speciality coffee and tea exhibitors and some of the
best hot chocolate, coffee cocktails, food and cake from across Scotland.
For the first time the event is going zero waste and it
will be the first coffee festival in the UK to do so.
Every day in the UK over seven million coffee cups are thrown away and only one per
cent are recycled.
Festival organisers are working with Frank Green – producers of the reusable SmartCup - and local company Vegware who
offer a ‘Close the Loop’ service so that composting collections are available
to businesses across Scotland, taking used food waste for industrial composting
and making it into high-grade horticultural compost.
