The local environmental administration has launched a "no waste" campaign at the festival, collecting coffee residue and used cups for recycling.

An integrated part of the festival, a coffee-themed exhibition is underway at Tianmu Road Library in Jing'an district, from April 23 to May 12, featuring vintage coffee ware from all over the world, posters and books about cafes in Shanghai.

The organizers expect the festival to receive 200,000 visitors at the main venue, with the sales totaling more than 2 million yuan.
