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.
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.
This year’s event runs from Monday, October 18 until Sunday, October 24.
If you’re looking to celebrate all things coffee this week, you can visit some of these Sunderland cafes – as chosen by Echo readers as their favourites.
