Seoul’s abundance of specialty coffee shops and star baristas show the city is churning out a steady stream of coffee snobs. If you’re one of them or interested in mingling with them, the Coffee Show is the place to be this November. Through exhibitions and shows, the expo will showcase a variety of new coffee trends, techniques and equipment. For those looking to taste some delicious, fresh coffee, many cafés and businesses will have their products on sale. Everything from coffee beans and syrups to coffee cup lids and Dutch coffee machines will be available. Said to be the biggest coffee exhibition in Asia, brands like the high end Nespresso, Tom&Toms, Gontran Cherrier (by chef with former experience at a 3 Michelin star restaurant) and SMEG among others will make up the 580 local and international companies joining the exhibition. Don’t miss out on the “EXPRESS CREATIVE charisma” barista competition for some competitive action in coffee making, the talk with World Coffee Research CEO Timothy Schilling and educational sessions to learn more about the dark brown drink.
