The Coffee Art Project is a high profile art competition inviting artists to interpret the theme of coffee.

Artists at all levels can enter one piece of artwork that connects to 'coffee' and/or 'coffee shop' experience. There is no restriction on media used; sculpture, painting, installation, photography and mixed media art works are all eligible and welcome, providing that they have a justifiable link to coffee.

We aim tO

  • Support and encourage artists by providing them with a platform to showcase their work.
  • Promote coffee culture.
  • Raise money to bring clean water and sanitation to coffee-growing communities.


Following on from the success of The Coffee Art Project in London, Milan, Amsterdam and Paris, where more than 400 inspirational submissions have been received - the competition now enters it's sixth year in London and it's fourth year in NYC.  2018 sees the programme launched in Los Angeles and 2019 will see the Cape Town edition roll out.  In future we plan to extend the programme to other major cities including: Berlin, Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Seoul and Tokyo.


The Coffee art Project supports Project Waterfall, which is committed to bringing clean water to communities which grow our coffee through the Allegra Foundation and other registered charities.

So far, Project Waterfall has raised more than £800,000 and delivered clean water to over 27,000 people in Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Nicaragua in partnership with WaterAid, Charity: Water and Water for People.
