The benefits of hiring a barista over a coffee machine

An event, conference or exhibition is a great way to show off your brand and products to potential customers. But, with so much competition it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. While you might have an incredible offering, if you don’t grab the attention of passing attendees it’s all too easy to get lost in a sea of exhibitors.

To truly make an impact at an event, your brand needs to be memorable. Creating a lasting impression with attendees gives you the best chance to convert new customers, and we think there’s no better way to do that than through excellent coffee.

Coffee machine rental at events – is your brand missing out on making a great impact?

Many people choose to hire a coffee machine for their event, but you shouldn’t have to settle for mediocre when hiring a professional barista service offers so many more benefits. Here’s why hiring our barista service for your next event is the best way to get your brand noticed. 

The benefits of hiring a barista vs hiring a coffee machine


A barista service like ours means you get high-quality coffee that’s freshly roasted, brewed, and made to order. Coffee from a machine lacks the great quality that you’ll find with a barista-made drink, and average coffee isn’t going to make you stand out. Our signature blend, Northern Espresso, is freshly roasted in our micro-roaster for your event, guaranteeing unforgettable flavour with each and every batch.


We offer a completely professional service from highly-trained, experienced event baristas. Our team is all about service with a smile, and we love nothing more than looking after your guests. In fact, we’re known by our customers for always adding a touch of class, character and flair to the events we attend. While hiring a coffee machine may seem like an easy option, attendees will have to queue up and serve themselves, which is far less engaging and memorable than a chat with a friendly barista.


A professional barista service offers a human element that you just can’t replicate when hiring a coffee machine. Our baristas are trained in all elements of coffee making, and we’re happy to tailor-make drinks to guests’ exact preferences. Fancy an extra shot or switching to oat milk? No problem. And, we’ve yet to see a coffee machine with the latte art skills of our team of baristas!


We know you’ve got a lot to think about when exhibiting, so we take the worrying about refreshments off your plate. Everything is included in our service for total convenience, from all equipment and stock to our professional event baristas. It means you don’t have to do a thing except for focusing on showcasing your offering.


While stand-out coffee underpins everything we do, we also offer a range of additional products and services that add value and help you effortlessly raise brand awareness. From branded cups that quite literally put your name on everyone’s lips to personalised cupcakes, artisan brownies and individually wrapped biscuits, our optional extras help you leave a long-lasting impression. We can even serve up freshness with zingy smoothies and juices – perfect for summer events.

Standing out from the crowd

Hiring a barista service creates a unique experience for your guests and is far more likely to make you stand out than a simple coffee machine. While a coffee machine can be a good, cost-effective way to serve hot drinks at your event, we think the benefits of hiring a barista service far outweigh the extra cost. If you want to create a premium and memorable experience for your attendees, hiring a barista is the way to go.
