London Coffee Festival 2019

London Coffee Festival 2019

Modern Standard will be hosting a stand at London Coffee Festival from March 28th-31st, 2019. Find out all about the event’s biggest highlights and what we’re bringing to the show, including an awesome surprise.

It’s like Christmas for speciality coffee lovers! That’s right, it’s that time of year when East London descends into a caffeine-based frenzy once again. London Coffee Festival 2019 takes place at its usual home the Old Truman Brewery in Spitalfields on Thursday, March 28th to Sunday March 31st.

Trade attendees and fanatics alike will be treated to a bevy of different roasters, coffee-tech and barista events on display. It has become a home from home for Modern Standard and we’ll be showcasing our products again this year at stand HP31.

Come by for a freshly brewed Chemex and a chat! Plus, we’ll have an extra special surprise new for 2019, so be sure to read on to the bottom. We love opportunities to talk speciality coffee with people who really care about what goes into their cup.

We especially love London Coffee Festival for the people we meet, who want to learn about how we can provide their office with all-round coffee support, or simply ask questions about brewing great coffee at home. So if you’re in a quandary about grind settings or brewing techniques, we can help.

Delicious speciality coffees straight from the port

Our team will be ready to welcome you to try a freshly brewed filter coffee made with the freshest beans. They’re so fresh in fact, that we haven’t even yet been able to decide which ones we’ll be bringing! What we do know is that with speciality coffee there is nothing more exciting than trying the very latest harvests from the world’s finest fincas and micro-lots for the first time.

We’ll be brewing throughout the day for you to taste while we share the story of our coffees. There’ll be a selection too, so we can bring you flavoursome beans from the major coffee regions such as Ethiopia, Kenya and Costa Rica. If you’re a home-brewer looking to try something new, we’re sure to come up with the goods that’ll delight your taste buds at this year’s festival.

We always aim source the best speciality coffees available, when they are available. So much of what we do goes into getting the most delicious seasonal beans for our espresso blends and single origin filter options.

Great coffee, great coffee tech

Every barista knows how important the right equipment can be to creating the perfect brew. That’s why this year we’ve teamed up with Dalla Corte to use their exciting XT traditional machine for pulling awesome espresso shots.

Modern Standard can support your business as the complete speciality coffee partner. Whatever your requirements may be, we’re here for you to serve more than great coffee. Because we know that an amazing coffee experience comes from everything that makes the brew. We can offer comprehensive technical solutions to suit your site or office based on your needs.

As well as round the clock tech support from experienced coffee machine engineers, our customer success team are also on hand to ensure that you’re tapping into every ounce of potential in your coffee offering. Our aim is to keep you serving the most delicious coffee with minimum downtime.

If you’re interested in learning about any of our wholesale packages or services, please stop by on the Thursday or Friday to speak to our team. We’ll be happy to grab a drink and learn about your needs.

Working with KeepCup to reduce coffee waste

We are inspired by the tremendous effort going into making coffee consumption more sustainable. Our takeaway cups are compostable, which we believe is an important step in reducing the impact we’re having on our planet. At this year’s London Coffee Festival, we’re excited to be teaming up with KeepCup to go one step further.

As part of their drive for a healthier environment, KeepCup are encouraging attendees to make the most of reusable cups at this year’s festival. We’re excited to support this message and encourage patrons to wash their cups at our stand. That way you can enjoy all of the different coffee samples available (and that could be a hell of a lot) while also making a huge impact on the amount of waste that’s generated. KeepCup estimates that their customers avoid the unnecessary use of over 5 million disposable cups every day. To find out more about KeepCup and their mission, visit their website today.


Last but certainly not least, we are very excited to announce our ‘Beat The Buzz’ challenge which will be held on our stand at this year’s London Coffee Festival. Test your nerve to get round the course without touching the sides to be in with a chance of winning fabulous prizes. Ready to add your name to the leaderboard? Get yourself down to our stand before you have too many espressos! We can't wait to see you all at London Coffee Festival 2019!
