We are buzzing to be bringing you Kent’s very own Roaster Zone!

There will be stand out single origins, there will be perfect blends, there will be more free samples than you can shake your beans at.

Roasters will be showcasing some of their most exquisitely unique coffees, as well as some much loved favourites.

As well as brewing up for you there and then, you will also be able to pick up bags of your favourites to take home and enjoy too.
