The team here at Social Espresso were asked to provide our speciality event coffee service across four coffee stations at this year’s Frieze London & Frieze Master’s Art Fair for Lavazza. The brief for the Art Fair event was to showcase Lavazza’s new Columbian coffee blend, and we had three mobile coffee bars in Frieze Masters and one other located in Frieze London. We had a custom bar built to house two La Marzocco Lineas and two Mazzer Major grinders; now that’s what you call event coffee service at scale.

The event ran for seven days, and involved serving in excess of 6000 coffees. We had 5 baristas on site, going through over 500 litres of milk, 17 cases of Oatly and 100 kg of coffee.

Frieze Art Fair is an international contemporary art fair held in London and New York. It takes place every October in London’s Regent’s Park and since 2014 the event  has also been running on New York’s Randall’s Island. The fair is staged by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, the publishers of Frieze magazine. Frieze Art Fair features more than 170 contemporary art galleries, and the fair also includes specially commissioned artists’ projects, a programme of talks and presentations, and an artist-led education schedule.

Lavazza were a really great team to work with. Their experience and professionalism, combined with the skill of our baristas, executed an exceptional speciality event coffee service for all the attendees at this year’s fair (if you’d like to know more, you can discover more details about the event on their website). We’re already looking forward to coming back next year!
