The Bangkok Coffee Cult festival returns this month, with a twist. To prevent the spread of Covid-19, instead of having baristas and coffee shops setting up booths at just one venue, this year the festival will be giving out “Free Signature Drink” and “Free Coffee Tasting” vouchers to be used at participating coffee shops, with the purchase of a special Kinto coffee mug (B499) designed by Thai illustrator Oh Futon. 

From now through Jul 31, more than 20 of Bangkok’s top coffee shops will be taking part. Names include Akirart, Bottomless, Brave Roasters, City Boy Coffee Stand, Duck You Caferista, Factory Coffee, Flow Coffee Speed Bar, Ink & Lion Café, Liquid Objects, One Ounce for Onion, OOObkk and Phil Coffee. The new format has also allowed the festival to expand its scope, with seven top names in Chiang Mai now participating, including Around 18 Grams, Asama Cafe, Cottontree Coffee Roasters, Mix Kaffee, Omnia Cafe & Roastery, Sati Handcraft Coffee and Toongs Coffee.

A purchase of one coffee mug equals one "Free Signature Drink" voucher and one "Free Coffee Tasting" voucher, the latter of which can only be used at coffee roasters.
