This event celebrates Saudi Arabia's long-standing coffee culture and its importance in their heritage. The venue will be on the eastern side of King Abdullah Financial District.

The festival is sectioned into three key areas: Finjal Al-Dhaif, Finjal Al-Keef, and Finjal Al-Seef. “Finjal” refers to the small ornate cup into which Saudi coffee is poured, originating from the traditional coffee pot named “Dallah.”

Finjal Al-Dhaif’s section will be for tasting coffee from parts of the Kingdom, with crafty stalls and a coffee roasting zone.

Finjal Al-Keef will include the exhibitor spaces, places to grab a bite, a fun zone for the kids, and a little competitive edge in the contest corner.

For a dose of coffee culture, Finjal Al-Seef is the spot, offering enlightening chats, coffee crafting lessons, and live music and poetry to set the mood.

For both coffee enthusiasts and those keen to learn more about Saudi's coffee traditions, the upcoming festival offers a diverse range of enriching experiences.
