Barista & Co will open a ‘new concept’ in Ringwood, Hampshire when it opens its doors to the public next week. The coffee expert will showcase its coffee hardware in a new showroom and boutique store – open to consumers as well as retail trade customers that want to see Barista & Co’s full range in action.
With a ‘grand opening’ next week (Friday May 27), James Gray, founder of Barista & Co states: “We are looking forward to bringing a whole new experience to the world of coffee, and the opening event in Ringwood is just the beginning.”
James acknowledges: “We have been fortunate enough to work with some of the best coffee shops and retailers across the globe and we want to bring all the best elements to our first store.” He stresses that Barista & Co’s focus is “helping people to enjoy the best possible coffee at home,” by providing “the right kit.”
The new showroom will be “an inclusive hub” where people can try Barista & Co’s speciality coffees and get friendly advice on brewing methods most suitable for their taste and lifestyles. James emphasises: “We are strong believers that coffee is personal to every individual, from the roast to the grind and the brew.”
To celebrate the showroom opening, Barista & Co is giving away 250 free coffees when consumers pick up reusable yellow cups from various local retailers. The opening event will also see discounts for consumers across coffee products (such as the Twist Press and Brew It Stick), discounts on Barista & Co’s regular subscription service and the chance to decide on the next flavour of its guest roast coffee.
