Coffee Festivals

WOC DUBAI 2024

12/01/2024

Sourced from all over the world and light roasted in Transylvania, the coffees we choose are the expression of diversity and a united community that appreciates specialty coffee.

As a roastery, coffee festivals are among the most important events we can attend. Last year, we felt the specialty coffee community for the first time in Dubai, and this year we are returning there for the World of Coffee (WOC).

There will be three days of unique origins, brew talks, industry workshops, and networking with the most professional roasteries.
