The London Coffee Festival came to the East End last weekend to meet a variety of the UKs leading baristas and food lovers.

More than 12,000 people turned out to the Old Truman Brewery, in Brick Lane to celebrate the event, which started in 2011.

Baristas from 18 different coffee shops and micro-roasteries took over the True Artisan Cafe for a three hour slot to serve their signature drinks to visitors from La Marzocco’s iconic Strada machine.

The True Artisan Café also raised money for Project Waterfall, the clean water initiative delivering clean water projects in African coffee-producing countries.
