With the number of food and drink festivals throughout Ireland, one would think the country would have an annual coffee and tea festival. Not so. But that trend is changing. The first ever coffee and tea festival will take place this September from the 12-14th in Dublin at the RDS. At the event also will be the irish Foodservice Suppliers Alliance and the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe. The event will also serve as the introduction before the 2016 World Barista Championship, which will also be held in Dublin.
