Coffee Fest New Orleans 2024

JUNE 14-15, 2024


Coffee Fest is a business-to-business event for industry pros looking to up-level their restaurant or coffee biz.

Calling all coffee and tea aficionados — Coffee Fest is coming to New Orleans on June 14 and 15. The business-to-business event, which has been an industry staple since 1992, is designed to bring together leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs in the coffee and restaurant industry for a blend of education and professional connection. 

Hosted at Ernest N Morial Convention Center, this year’s New Orleans Coffee Fest has educational events around everything from roasting techniques to business operations. Some of this year’s free seminars are “Unpacking Sustainability: Exploring Environmentally Responsible Packaging Solutions,” “Social Media for Coffeeshops” and “Crafting Culture: How to Hire, Retain, and Care for Employees.” You can also pay a bit extra for advanced workshops on topics like “Hands On Barista Training: Matcha, Tea, and Other Non-Coffee Beverages,” Starting Right: The business knowledge you need to succeed,” and “Developing and Maintaining a Coffee Training Program.”

Besides the many coffee enthusiasts and displays of coffee tech at the exhibitor booths, you can also watch pros battle it out in latte art competitions. Keep an eye out for registration, as it typically opens up about eight weeks out.
