Ristretto employs only the most highly skilled professional baristas, trained to produce exceptional quality coffee at high volume with exemplary customer service. Our baristas usually come professionally attired in black collared shirts, black trousers and shoes, but can wear any uniform required. Ristretto baristas have provided a range of services to clients, including multi-national coffee companies.

Delegate Hours

The coffee bar can be very popular, and increasingly we find people are prepared to wait for our coffee – a captive audience your communications team can utilise.

If one barista makes 500 coffees a day and each client queues for 10 minutes – that’s more than 80 hours on stand per day of quality contact time to be utilised.

Branded Cups & Napkins

  • 13


Branded cups are often requested for coffee events. Ristretto can provide printed 8oz and 4oz cups for hot drinks – and branded clear plastic cups for cold.

Other Branding

We can source branded merchandise for your event – we can brand all our equipment as required. Napkins and any other merchandise can be branded by arrangement. All branding requires at least 2 weeks after client approval.


Our Custom Bars

Clients can provide their own bars or choose from Ristretto’s range of stylish, self-contained mobile coffee bars, purpose built for high-end espresso service.

All bars contain their own on-board water storage; water is pumped through a filter system to the espresso machine,
eliminating the need for a mains water connection and guaranteeing the highest quality of water.

Illuminated Bars

Each of the bars in the illuminated bar range light up in a choice of sixteen different colours to match your company’s branding. They can be programmed to cycle through all sixteen colours for maximum effect, to display your company’s brand colours or to simply suit the surroundings. Colour change is by remote control and is instantaneous.

These bars can be branded with your company’s logo – or with a full wrap-around custom adhesive. Please contact us for more information.
