Our Coffee Service is Exceptional

There is exceptional coffee, of all tastes and blends. There is a huge amount of time securing the only fresh organic NON-UHT milk at shows in Portugal and Spain (one from a milk farmer who just happens to be personal friends with the owner). There is the organising of delicious and naughty pastries from London’s finest Jewish bakery. There is no upselling, only professionalism. There is no fear of anything other than the very best from the moment you pick up the phone, to the moment the beans that are specifically roasted for your event to ensure perfection are packed and shipped and then used at show.”

Chris Cutbush – European Marketing Events Manager, CR Bard

We like to go above and beyond to make your event perfect

From branded cups and napkins to stencils of your logo for chocolate powder - we can make your coffee service extra special. A popular request for events, Ristretto provide printed 4oz and 8oz quality cups for hot and cold beverages. We also offer customisable coffee bars branded with your company's logo and signature colour to keep you in the spotlight.

Clients can choose from Ristretto’s range of stylish, mobile coffee bars built for high-end espresso service. Without the inconvenience of a mains water connection, all bars contain their own on-board water storage, so you can situate your bar wherever you desire. Water is pumped through a filter system, producing purified quality water.

Wooden bars

With a sophisticated design, our wooden bars are brilliant for giving off a spacious air in small spaces. Its beautiful panels of solid cherry, walnut and oak will attract customers with its homely and intimate presence. They are fully demountable and can be taken apart and put together easily at events.

Illuminated Bars

If you are seeking a vibrant atmosphere, our illuminated bars light up in sixteen eye-catching colours, providing a snazzy touch to your event. Whether it is branded with your company’s logo or with a full wrap-around custom adhesive, these exclusive bars give you the freedom to make it your very own.

Art Deco

Our curved art deco bars turn heads with their elegant style. It is made from stainless steel and glass with sleek classic lines redolent of the twenties and thirties. Its contemporary look will grace your event with a bit of prestige, and the front panel of this bar can be branded to give it a personal touch.

Looking like a pint of Guiness, cold brew coffee is produced from a device much like a beer tap to produce a delicious unique cold brewed coffee with a light foamy head. A sleek tabletop device means these drinks can be produced professionally on stand.

Our brew bars provide a selection of stunning single origin filter coffee from our roaster, Alchemy Coffee. Pour-over brewing provides a no-steam and noiseless service, and is perfect for accentuating Ristretto coffees' intricate aromas and flavours. Catering to all types of events, our brew bars are a peaceful alternative to espresso machines for quiet-natured venues, such as art galleries.

Why not lure customers from far with the aroma of delicious cookies freshly baked at your event. Available in three irresistible flavours, attendees can indulge in a sweet treat to keep them motivated if they are feeling peckish. Our cookies are the perfect addition to a lovely cup of Ristretto coffee!

Whether your attendees need a boost of energy or a shot of nutrition, our tasty smoothie recipes will keep them revived at your event. On the spot, we prepare fruit-packed smoothies with fresh ingredients to provide a healthy and refreshing alternative or addition to coffee.
