Bangkok’s coffee lovers have something to look forward to for the next few days. A 4-day coffee festival starts today at Impact Exhibition Hall 5-7, located in Nonthaburi province, north of Bangkok’s city centre. According to Thailand Coffee Fest’s Facebook Page, the event will be held from today until July 17 (Sunday) from 10am-8pm.

The festival, titled Thailand Coffee Fest 2022, is happening under the theme “Designing the Future of Thai Coffee”. It is being organised by the Specialty Coffee Association of Thailand, and The Cloud, a lifestyle magazine. The festival will feature a coffee showcase by an award-winning barista, as well as talks by guest speakers.

The speakers will discuss topics related to coffee production and sustainability. There will be products from over 200 cafes and roasters. In a Facebook post about the event, Thailand Coffee Fest writes…

“We have just passed the pandemic crisis together with many countries all over the world, so the new journey is heading towards the future in new directions, opportunities, and possibilities like never before, to make a new version of history.”

There is no admission fee to the festival, and people can get tickets HERE.

Thailand had evolved a long way from when the first coffee tree was planted in Doi Inthanon, Chiang Mai. As the specialty coffee economy continues to grow in Thailand, more and more specialty coffee beans can be found throughout the country.
