The importance of coffee and its history…

Friday 5th October 2018

The importance of coffee and its history - coffee events

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’.



Glee 2018 Birmingham

This was our first year exhibiting at Glee in Birmingham, attending the show with our Balmforth & Co coffee. Our team had a great time meeting various people and treating them to a delicious Blend 2 coffee or a demonstration on the V60 drippers with our Blend 1, in ground form.

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.

Our customers are at the heart of everything that we do. If they are not achieving their goals then neither are we. Their satisfaction is very important to us and we believe that delivering what our customers want and need, means that we can form a long lasting partnership.

We’ve been using RSL now for well over 10 years. In a highly competitive market they have always maintained top quality products and service. Professional, innovative and reliable but with a personal friendly touch, I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Keoghs Solicitors

I think the most important advantage Refreshment Systems had over the competition was the use of the mobile drinks van that enabled the shop floor to actually trial the drinks straight from the machine so there were no ‘surprises’ when the machines were installed.

Kongsberg Automotive

We approached RSL after finding out that they could supply the Vitro coffee machines (which we wanted in our new offices). They were able to offer us the best solution to meet our needs and delivered a pain free installation and setup. We are so happy with the service that we have received so far, that we are looking to use them in some of our other sites.
