The Coffee Art Project is a high profile art competition linked to 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 is entering it's second year in NYC.

We will be also launching The Coffee Art Project in other major cities, including: Berlin, Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Singapore 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 £520,000 and delivered clean water to over 20,000 people in Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Nicaragua in partnership with WaterAid, Charity: Water and Water for People.

Our Model

The Coffee art Project is a non-profit initiative aimed at encouraging artists by providing them with an open platform to showcase their works.

We are funded by donations, sponsorship and art sales. All works must be for sale in the exhibition(s) and on the Coffee art Project on-line gallery. For each artwork sold, 25% is given to the artist, 25% is used to fund administration costs, 50% will be donated to Project Waterfall.
