Macmillan Coffee Morning
Friday 28th September 2018
We had such a great turn out for this year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning, The Barnsley Business Village tenants were queuing out of the door! Coffees and cakes selling thick and fast in support of this amazing cause.
Because of all the generous donations, we added £100 on to last year’s efforts to reach a fantastic £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support!
A huge thank you to all that came along on the day!
The importance of coffee and its history…
Friday 5th October 2018
With more than 15 years of experience in the food and beverage industry, Steve May has seen how the coffee market has developed and evolved, into the powerhouse that it is today!
In this session, Steve covered a wide range of topics including; where coffee originally came from, how tastes
change from country-to-country, and where he sees the industry going over the next year and beyond.
There were also demonstrations and tastings for our guests to truly understand the difference between espresso and
filter-based drinks, and the taste difference between Arabica and Robusta beans.
The event was jam-packed with coffee enthusiasts, whether that be a total novice or an experienced
espresso drinker. We received great feedback from all of the attendees, with everyone rating the event ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very Good’.

We plan on exhibiting at next year’s show, so please do keep an eye out for us there and get a beautiful coffee made for you by our dedicated team.
