World of Coffee is finally back in the events space as it welcomes visitors in-person for the first time in three years.
Organised by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), World of Coffee is one of Europe’s famous trade shows that take place annually in different parts of the continent. This year, it will be held at the Milano Convention Centre in Milan, Italy, from 23 to 25 June 2022. Sponsored by BWT water+more, a water technology company, the event will be attended by more than 200 coffee and Horeca industry suppliers, who will exhibit their products and services to coffee enthusiasts.
Bartalks will be in Milan covering the event, so let us know if you’ll be there to share an espresso!
Visitors can expect to see new features that have been added to the show, such as:
Five World Coffee Championships:
- World Latte Art Championship
- World Coffee in Good Spirits Championship
- World Cup Tasters Championship

What a better place to reunite and reconnect after three years than the birthplace of the espresso. Thanks to the ongoing support from our dedicated sponsors, exhibitors, and visitors, the Italian coffee community, and volunteers World of Coffee returns with much-loved and brand-new features when we visit Milan next month. Looking to the future together in a place that holds so much coffee history.Yannis Apostolopolus – SCA Chief Executive Officer
Looking through the exhibitor list, we’re pretty excited to meet so many companies across the entire spectrum of the industry, from the top espresso equipment companies to coffee traders. I think this will be an event to make if you can.
Dubbed as the birthplace of espresso, Italy is more than befitting for the event. However, it wasn’t originally set in Italy, but at PTAK Convention Centre in Poland’s capital, Warsaw. As the Ukraine-Russia conflict escalated, thousands of Ukrainians sought refuge in Poland, which included the supposed place of the trade show.
One hundred per cent of the proceeds generated from World of Coffee attendees will go to Ukrainian coffee businesses and professionals.
