2018 is almost over and what a year we've had...fancy a scroll with us down memory lane?

London Coffee Festival

LCFLondon Coffee Festival is the biggest event on our coffee calendar, bringing the most passionate brands and enthusiasts under one roof for a week of pure caffeine fuelled madness! A real highlight for us included the 'roaster rotation' which took place on the Sanremo stand whereby we invited our industry partners to showcase their coffee and skills on our equipment. Also, how could we forget the midweek collaborative LCF after-party? It was hosted alongside one of our long-term partners, Assembly Coffee, at Shoreditch bar and venue Old Street Records. Watch the event video here. We're back on stand 21 at LCF 2019...see you there!

WCE Official Machine!

The Cafe Racer is the official machine of both UK & World stages for the Latte Art / Coffee in Good Spirits Championships 2018 - 2020. This means we had the privilege of supporting some of the best baristas in the world throughout their unique journeys. Congrats to Will Pitts (UKLAC '19 Champion) and Dan Fellows (UKCIGS '19 Champion).



We hosted a Warm-Up event in our Hackney showroom which brought together an array of #FreePourAllStars, coffee influencers and enthusiasts. It was a memorable industry event for all involved and a great opportunity for budding baristas to try their hand on the Cafe Racer machine. We collaborated with some top brands to put this event together including Assembly Coffee, Grind, Monkey shoulder, Jameson's Whiskey, Discarded and Estate Dairy. The latte art class and throwdown led by a 6 times UK Latte Art Champion Dhan Tamang was a fantastic opportunity for baristas and the feedback we had was amazing. Thanks again to everyone that made the night a success. Watch the event video by clicking the picture below.
