Izmir Coffee Festival is our 2nd file on spreading coffee culture in Turkey. After the first “coffee festival” article, now here we are again with the second coffee festival article. Our first coffee festival text was about Istanbul Coffee Festival (ICF). You can find all the details in our text in which we analysed elaborately (Istanbul Coffee Festival: A Thrill That Has Been Going On For 5 years). But see you this time in İzmir instead of Istanbul! We hope that this article will cause a piece of curiosity in your mind about the Coffee Festival Izmir…

Izmir Coffee Festival’s Area
The Festival’s area is located in a very central part of Izmir. The festival is going to be organized in Izmir Arena. The Izmir Arena hosts many national and international events and meetings such as business dinners, private invitations, price-giving ceremonies. The Arena has a perfect location and it is very easy to reach. The address is; 1649 Sk. No: 107 Turan – Bayraklı / İZMİR.
How Can I Go to Izmir Arena?
There are so many shuttle buses from both the airport and bus terminal. From the airport, you can also take the metro to the centre of the city. It takes about 45 minutes to arrive in the festival area. Izmir is not as big as Istanbul, and the traffic is not as troubled either. Metro works well enough, also you can use other public transportations to reach Bayraklı.
For coffee lovers, this festival is the one! Coffee Festival Izmir is a wonderful opportunity that you should not miss. For those especially live in Izmir or in the region, the meaning of the festival is enjoying coffee at the edge of the gulf (“the gulf” refers to Gulf of Izmir).
