Not all of the event is about coffee, though. There's charity involved. The festival is donating 50% of ticket proceeds to charity: water for the Allegra Group's Project Waterfallinitiative.
Tickets for the festival are now on sale at: www.newyorkcoffeefestival.com/tickets. The event is hosted by Allegra Events Ltd., and was created to celebrate the booming specialty coffee scene.
