2021 World of Coffee Event is Heading to Athens


The Specialty Coffee Association has announced that its 2021 World of Coffee show — Europe’s largest annual specialty coffee trade show — will be heading to Athens, Greece.

The show will be in concert with the Athens Metropolitan Expo and will take place June 24-26, 2021. The 2020 World of Coffee event is taking place in Warsaw, Poland, from June 18-20.

The SCA — whose global membership predominantly comprises coffee professionals from the United States and Europe — said the event has more than tripled in size over the past six years, growing to more than 11,000 visitors and 240 exhibitors at the 2019 event in Berlin.

In addition to the main expo and associated educational programming, endless cuppings, networking events and surrounding parties, the 2021 World of Coffee in Athens will also host the 2021 World Barista Championship, the World Cezve/Ibrik Championship, and World Cup Tasters Championship, where hundreds of national winners will compete.

“The volunteers and staff of the SCA who make World of Coffee possible are delighted to return to Greece in 2021,” SCA CEO Yannis Apostolopoulos said in announcement of the event. “Greece is a country with a thriving specialty coffee community, as exemplified in the work and activities of the volunteers who run the SCA Greece Chapter. We look forward to working with the Athens Metropolitan Expo to execute a world-class event and welcome the global specialty community to Athens.”
