Only in its second year, the Cincinnati Coffee Festival is already the largest coffee festival in the Midwest. The 2017 inaugural event saw 4,000 attendees, which was almost double the expected turnout. Event director Judi Cogen admits they “had no idea how much the community would embrace it.”
The second annual Coffee Festival takes place at Music Hall on November 10–11, and it guarantees something for everyone, from casual home brewers to coffee enthusiasts. Workshops like Tea 101, What is Flavor?, and Turkish Coffee are interspersed with live music and designed to help people learn about things like making better brews and coffee flavors from around the world, or simply for those who want to mingle with a drink.
