Education customers proud to serve Vista Coffee

“We were one of the first universities in the country to benefit from the new Vista branding and we refreshed the look of all of our cafes. Our customers have welcomed the changes and this had been reflected in our sales which have increased substantially.”

Paul Barton, Catering Operations Manager

“Working with Sharon and the marketing team in designing and installing the ‘Tchibo’ hot drinks facilities across three outlets has been an unqualified success.

In week 3 of the academic term the coffee and hot chocolate sales increased by around 45%, so as Catering Manager I am rather pleased!

2016 TUCO Barista Skills Challenge

TUCO is a leading professional membership body for ‘in house’ caterers for universities and colleges. As a member, and for the second year running, we were proud to sponsor the 2016 TUCO Barista Skills Challenge, held in March.

Using our Piacetto Espresso Supremo beans, baristas were able to pitch their skills, knowledge and talents against one another (in 2015 they used our Fairtrade Vista Café Crème beans).

Congratulations to this year’s Challenge Winner, Gemma Wright, from the University of Birmingham along with all the other contestants who took part.
