Coffee festival

What is roast!?

The festival is intended for everyone who is just a little bit interested in the world of specialty coffee. It doesn't matter if you are a professional in the industry, a coffee enthusiast or if you tasted your first v60 yesterday and are just getting acquainted. And if the caffeine gets to be too much for you - the festival offers an alternative in the form of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and savoury and sweet treats.

Espresso bars

Our bars will feature a rotation of local and out-of-town roasters of select coffees. You can taste all kinds of milk drinks at two bars. On the third, you'll taste a fine-tuned espresso with no additives. Can't have regular milk? We're ready for that too!

Brew bars

V60, Chemex, Aeropress or Coldbrew? You can also taste these alternative brews at our brew bars. We give roasters complete freedom to choose the brew that best suits their beans.

Workshops and cuppings

Would you like to try more than a dozen alternative coffee preparations or test your sensory skills? Our professional baristas will guide you through everything and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Lectures

Our special guests will guide you through the nooks and crannies of coffee technology, chemistry and culture you may not have known existed. In the chapel behind the main hall, professionals from the coffee scene and beyond will be waiting for you with comfortable chairs.

What to expect?

  • Unlimited coffee consumption
    With the price of admission, you can sample coffees from all the roasters present throughout the festival.

    You can expect lectures from well-known café owners, coffee roasters and other personalities from the industry. Take the unique opportunity to meet those who make it possible for you to enjoy the finest coffee. Admission to the lectures is included in the price of admission.

    Try out different coffee brewing methods or roast your own coffee. Capacity of the workshops is limited, so come early. Participation in the workshops is included in the price of admission.

    We have back-up coffee and beer cups for each participant. A deposit is paid on site. Of course there is a cup rinse available free of charge so you can enjoy your coffee from a clean cup every time.

Accompanying program

  • Chill-out zone
    If you want to relax during the festival, we have a relaxation area with deck chairs and seating.
  • Snack bar
    Ochutnávat kávu dva dny v kuse není jednoduché, proto pro Vás máme v nabídce i další občerstvení všeho druhu. Pivo, limonádu, kávové i jiné kokteily, slané i sladké jídlo, vodní dýmky... Na co si vzpomenete.
  • Specialty coffee to buy
    Tasting coffee for two days in a row is not easy, that's why we also offer other snacks of all kinds. Beer, lemonade, coffee-based and other cocktails, salty and sweet food, hookahs... Whatever you can think of.
  • Festival merchandise
    As well as coffee, we also have various other coffee products available for purchase. Plus, special Roast! Festival merch.

Year 1

Previous year

Roast! will be held for the second time this year. In 2023, our festival had a pilot test year. We wanted to start a small festival and see if there was any interest in such an event in Brno. It turned out that an event of this format has its place and that's why we are aiming higher this year.

Roast! would be nothing without the participation of roasters, exhibitors, speakers and sponsors. If you fall into this category, be sure to click to find out more. Maybe you'll be interested in what we have to offer. And if not, drop us an email and maybe we can work something out.
We are still roasting the festival program for you.
