For coffee lovers, who can’t start the day without coffee, the best season of the fall came to Gangneung.
Gangneung Coffee Festival!
Now there is no doubt that Gangneung is the center of Korean coffee industry.
Gangneung City and the local coffee makers have organized this annual festival almost for ten years.
In 2017 it was held at Gangneung Green City Experience Center(also known as E-Zen) as the main venue.
Gangneung Coffee Festival is an opportunity to look into how Korean
particularly Gangneung’s coffee industry has grown dramatically.
People have engaged with coffee makers from farmers, roasters to baristas by tasting coffee
and experiencing to make coffee, and those coffee makers have shown the process to people in person via the festival.
Not only standard drip coffee visitors could also meet a diverse range of coffee,
from the general types like latte and cappuccino to the new trend like the cold brew coffee at the festival.
And visitors to the festival could taste various styles of coffee made beans from all over the world,
and brewed by baristas from Gangneung’s famous coffee stores.
Don’t worry. The coffee festival doesn’t fill your stomach only with coffee.
Many food vendors also participate in the festival.
It is good just hang around at the festival area covered with coffee fragrance holding a cup of coffee with one hand.
Rain couldn’t disturb the festival mood. In rainy days people get more eager to drink coffee.
At the place full of coffee music is never missed.
K-pop stars including Bolbbalgan4 and SEENROOT and many other musicians made visitors more joyful.
