La Marzocco has taken home the top spot for “Most Innovative Product – Industry” and “Favourite Key Feature” at the 2018 London Coffee Festival awards.
The recognition is thanks to its exhibition of the Leva machine and Latte Art Live format, voted as event favourites by the attendees of the three-day event.
The 2018 London Coffee Festival welcomed over 31,000 visitors to Brick Lane’s The Old Truman Brewery from 12 to 15 April, where guests drank coffee to a soundtrack of live music and DJs. Visitors enjoyed latte art demonstrations, including displays from the United Kingdom Latte Art Champion Dhan Tamang, and talks from some of the world’s leading industry figureheads at The Lab.
With a brand new fourth floor added to the festival this year, guests had more space to celebrate than ever before and the opportunity to meet more than 400 exhibitors. There were new product launches from the likes of Sandows Cold Brew and Rancilio, and debut interactive experiences, including Latte Art Karaoke.
Half of the proceeds from tickets sales are donated to Project Waterfall, a charity initiative that works to provide clean water and sanitation for the world’s coffee growing communities. The London Coffee Festival kick-started UK Coffee Week, a nationwide charitable fundraising week.
