The evolution of taste at the Olympia Centre

Wrapped in a sensory cloud laden with the notes of fruit and chocolate, the scents of exotic teas and above all the aroma of freshly ground coffee, the best companies from the coffee bar sector got together last week at the Olympia Exhibition Centre in London to catch up on the biggest innovations in the field.

Astoria (3)Lessons and specialized seminars were arranged around a vast series of quality tastings that included coffees and cappuccinos being served at the Astoria stand with the Plus4You machine, displayed in white/chrome, and by the Gemma model  – complete with the refrigeration module  – presented in the touch screen and push button versions with transparent blue/stainless steel finishing.

The more than 200 exhibitors attending the London event offered insight to the tendencies of a market – the anglo saxon one – that is in continual evolution, where espresso coffee’s growing popularity goes hand in hand with eco friendly technologies: a field which sees Astoria on the forefront with the Plus4you, the “A” class in coffee machines.

Caffè Culture Show will return to the Olympia Center in 2014; mark the dates on the calendar for May 14th and 15th.
