THE NEW YORK COFFEE FESTIVAL
Celebrates Successful Return To New York City
New York, NY – Oct 19, 2022 – The New York Coffee Festival recently wrapped its 6th annual celebration of all things coffee here in the city that never sleeps. With over 8.1k attendees and 100 innovative and exciting vendors, the weekend marked a successful return for New York’s premier coffee event.
From Friday, October 7th to Sunday, October 9th, coffee novices and aficionados alike were treated to delicious lattes, cold brews, chai teas, chocolate, spirits, and more from exhibitors including Variety Coffee Roasters, Sweetleaf Coffee Roasters, Parlor Coffee, Blank Street, Bodum, De’Longhi, Cometeer, Flux Coffee, Nguyen Coffee Supply, Roe & Coe Irish Whiskey, The Pathfinder, Raaka Chocolate, Rishi Tea, and Dona Chai, amongst others. Attendees were also able to sample the best that New York has to offer in food, cocktails, live music, art, and more.
The weekend also played host to the Coffee Masters NYC competition. Judged by a panel of leading industry figureheads, 12 up-and-coming roasters battled head-to-head to compete for the coveted Coffee Masters title. We are thrilled to share that the winner of this fast-paced competition was Davide Orazi of Watchouse Coffee.
100% of profits from the New York Coffee Festival are donated to Project Waterfall, with over $2M raised to date for NYC-based charity: water to deliver life-changing water projects in coffee-growing regions. This year’s event raised more than $40.1k in support of their mission. Find out more about Project Waterfall at projectwaterfall.org and charity: water at charitywater.org.
