İstanbul Coffee Festival is trying to cover the theme of coffee in wider context so everyone could find his own way through it with certain “forty years’ commitment for the sake of the Turkish coffee”.

Why Coffee? Why İstanbul?

kcpCoffee, no longer is only a cup of Turkish Coffee, after the meals for us as well, but an important part of daily life as oriented in Europe and passed quickly to the U.S.A.

After the first wave, prioritizing the packaging of coffee and its global introduction for marketing without any focus on quality coffee consumption but on sales as a commodity, the second wave settled in with the introduction of the term “pleasure of coffee” into the market.

The third wave is now developing and expanding, not only throughout Europe, Japan and the U.S.A. but in Istanbul as well, prioritizing the coffee itself, its origins, quality of production and its styles of brewery with the unique style of living and culture of its own.

Our vision and intention is to bring Istanbul on the global stage of this wave and this culture with its tremendous potential, talent and success, bringing all together and being a global meeting point for this culture, with its styles from tastes to design, its music to art, its way of moving to fashion, every year.

Coffee for diversity! Let’s get together and share tour passion for coffee!
