Our baristas are highly skilled and professional, passionate about coffee and with exemplary customer service.

We can work with you to ensure you maximize the marketing potential of using a mobile coffee barista service on your exhibition stand.

Delegate Hours

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

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 with your target clients.
