Coffee culture on show in Dubai
With coffee firmly entrenched in their culture, the people of the United Arab Emirates are now embracing the third wave.
As one of the first regions in the world to develop a sophisticated coffee culture, it is small wonder that the Middle East is still a hot spot for coffee appreciation.
However, while the coffee culture of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is steeped in many centuries of tradition, the new wave of coffee culture is sweeping over the region and the local industry is abuzz with the latest trends in specialty coffee consumption.
All of this interest and innovation is brought together under one roof for the annual International Coffee and Tea Festival, which is being held in Dubai from 2 – 4 November.
