Dubai Food Festival 2020 is now on and it’s not just about food! Coffee lovers have a little something to indulge in too.  If you are the kind who cannot do without that hot cuppa, then you must head to the DFF right now. This year, DFF gives you a chance to indulge in a Limited Edition Coffee Series, specially created just for the 18-day festival. Anyone up for a hot cuppa?

What’s It?

Until Saturday 14 March, coffee lovers can try a drink concocted by baristas at nine local coffee concept stores, or one of three international franchises. All you need to do is grab a Dubai Food Festival coffee passport, get it stamped at each venue and stand a chance to win AED 1,000 worth of coffee.

Home grown coffee houses and cafes taking part in the coffee festival include Cupagahwa, DOH, Drop Café, 20 Grams Café, Emirati Coffee, Nusantara Coffee Roasters, Qiso Café & Minimart, Andes Café, Spill the Beans and One Degree Café. Other International franchises like Costa Coffee, Café Frei and Boston Lane Café are also part of the fun.

Here’s a quick round-up of where to grab your favorite coffee!

High Street favourite Costa Coffee is bringing a Spiced Toffee Cappuccino to its menus at 155 outlets across the UAE. Espresso topped with spiced toffee foam anyone?

The coffee is made with a cold Colombian brew and coconut milk poured over coconut chocolate truffles, a raw chocolate brownie bite, mocha syrup and coffee-bean infused ice spheres- this one’s pure bliss.
