Brussels Coffee Week

The Brussels Coffee Week is a collective of young coffee enthousiasts with a passion for specialty coffee.
By organizing workshops, lectures and events we are the binding force for a coffee community in Brussels, bringing together coffee lovers, geeks and professionals.
Throughout the year we create a guide through the Brussels Coffee scene.
