Back to the grind...

We’re buzzing today – and it's not just because we've had one too many coffees, either. In fact, it's all to do with the announcement of The Coffee House Project, a new coffee festival coming to Bristol this September.

Up to 50 exhibitors will pile into the huge Passenger Shed next to Bristol Temple Meads for the two-day event, which will throw the spotlight on the best speciality roasters, retailers and baristas in the area.

The festival will kick off on Friday 7 September at midday, with the official launch party following in the evening, promising free-flowing Espresso Martinis and craft beers. Then, on Saturday, visitors will get a chance to take part in workshops and listen to talks from some of the biggest names in the game. There will also be a barista competition, on-going throughout the festival, hosted by the Speciality Coffee Association.

Street food will be served up by top independent vendors, and entertainment will come in the form of live music.

Stay tuned for more details about the event – we'll give you the full programme as soon as we get our hands on it. In the meantime, follow @chpbristol on Twitter for all the latest announcements.
