Ljubljana, 1. 2. 2017 – Because Ljubljana coffee in recents year is not limited anymore to just espresso, it was bound to happen: welcome to 1st STOW coffee festival in the city. It takes place between the first and fourth of February at the Gospodarsko razstavišče (Ljubljana Convention centre) within GAST Expo Fairs of Tastes, and finishes Sunday February 5th in STOW specialty coffee shop in City museum with a barista brunch and Latte Art throwdown. See you there, no?
