UK Coffee Week: Echo readers pick their favourite cafes to visit in Sunderland

It’s a week where the coffee industry and its customers come together to celebrate all things about the hot drink.

Wednesday, 20th October 2021, 4:55 am

And for this year’s UK Coffee Week, we asked the Echo readers to shout out their favourite cafes across Sunderland.

The charity initiative, in aid of Project Waterfall, aims to bring clean drinking water to coffee-growing communities and raise money to support them.

Businesses taking part in UK Coffee Week can donate from every cup or bag of coffee sold.
