Collaging unique visions, pioneering coffee possibilities.
A coffee bean embodies myriad flavours; one coffee community ignites a diverse and vibrant city.
This year, PMQ Coffee Agenda brings together local and global baristas once again to unleash creativity, break boundaries and spark new synergy. Whether you are a coffee novice or a die-hard enthusiast, join Hong Kong’s annual coffee extravaganza to be part of a passionate community!
In late September, we kickstart with a series of preheat programmes to welcome coffee newcomers and lovers alike. Begin by exploring the fundamentals of coffee-ware, latte art and coffee brewing, then immerse in the lively atmosphere of the 2023 AeroPress Coffee Championship. From amateur to professional, open your gateway to a deeper relationship with coffee!
PMQ Coffee Agenda takes center stage in mid-October, featuring world-class champions, award-winning baristas and local experts to explore coffee’s endless possibilities. Engage in exclusive experiences like coffee pairings, tastings and industry networking. Discover the latest industry trends and savour the unique artisanal coffee culture of Hong Kong.
Simultaneously, the Hong Kong Barista Championship 2023 will be held for emerging coffee talents and seasoned veterans to compete and strive for excellence, to realise their dreams and continue exceeding limits on stage.
Join the celebration and witness the city’s coffee evolution!
