I have had Ristretto onsite for several major events over the past 12 months. On every occasion they have been outstanding. Great communication prior to set up. Friendly, professional staff that are a joy to work with and most importantly, great coffee! I look forward to booking them again in the future. Keep up the awesome work guys!’
