Edinburgh Coffee Festival gratefully acknowledges our 2019 Sponsors and Supporters


Alpro For Professionals, the plant-based baristas, will be joining Edinburgh Coffee Festival this year, showcasing both its ‘For Professionals’ range for baristas and Alpro Caffé Cup ready-to-drink chilled coffees.

Alpro For Professionals, which includes Soya For Professionals, Coconut For Professionals, Almond For Professionals and Oat For Professionals is specially formulated for use in hot drinks, delivering high-performance workability, delicious flavours and an impressive micro-foam. What’s more, the brand is always looking to minimise its environmental impact with its impressive sustainability credentials. Whether it’s sourcing almonds from the Mediterranean, or ensuring it never uses soya beans from deforested areas or any GMO produce.

As well as giving festival-goers the chance to sample a delicious range of plant-based Alpro drinks, from coconut cappuccinos to almond mochas, they’ll be able to sip on Alpro’s range of chilled coffee drinks, in Soya Caramel, Almond and Oat flavours.
