COFFEE lovers should be feeling full of beans as a festival devoted to their favourite drink is set to return.

The Brighton Coffee Festival will return to the city for the first time in two years on Sunday, August 14.

The city is renowned for the number of coffee shops it has and the trend shows no sign of stopping.

Previously held at the Open Market, the event will now take place at One Church in Gloucester Place to allow for a "more interactive" experience for coffee lovers.

The all-day festival will feature coffee tastings, latte art competitions and informative talks by industry professionals.

There will also be entertainment, giveaways, food stands – and all the coffee you could need.

Organiser Oli Crawley said the team is "massively excited" to have the event return after a two-year hiatus.

He said: "2019 was such a huge success for us and we were all set to go for 2020 - it was all looking really positive.

"But of course due to Covid it was postponed till 2021.

"In 2021, because of the way the hospitality industry was hit so hard, we were sort of the responsible mindset that we wanted to make sure the traders could bounce back first.

"We are now at a point where the industry has been able to bounce back, so now it is time to think about things like the festival.

"We're really excited to be back."

Some 50 traders are expected to take part in the event, with roasters placed across multiple floors at the new venue.
