Our Q&A with Old World Coffee:
What do you like about weddings?
We do several different kinds of event, from parties to corporate employee appreciation events. Weddings are definitely one of favorite events to do. Everyone attending a wedding is already in such a good mood, and excited to share in the joy of the Bride and Groom. We love to be able to bring the party up a notch, and provide all the guests with their favorite drink. We also like to be able to add to the Bride and Groom’s very Special Day.
What steps to you take to ensure that the couple and their guests enjoy your services?
We work incredibly hard to ensure that our clients enjoy every drink we make, and the services we provide. All of our staff goes through rigorous barista training, as well customer service training. During an event we make a drink based on your specification, and if for any reason it doesn’t meet your standards we will be more then happy to remake the drink for you. We also encourage the guests to try several different drinks over the course of the event.
We know couples love a coffee bar if they are having a winter wedding, but why is a coffee bar useful for a wedding no matter what the season?
Just about everyone loves coffee, especially high quality coffee served by personal baristas. No matter the season an espresso bar for your wedding is the perfect finishing touch. In winter our hot drinks are always a hit, but during the summer we also provide iced drinks. There isn’t much better then a iced latte on a warm august day at an outdoor wedding.
Do you just provide coffee? If not, what other types of drinks to you do?
We do much more then just coffee. With every wedding package we also provide hot chocolates, seasonally available teas, Chai lattes, and spiced cider. On top of that we can provide Italian sodas, which include 6 flavors. We also have specialty lemonade, which you can get with a flavor as well, for instance a blueberry lemonade.
What is the most fun/unique drink that a wedding couple has requested for their wedding?
We haven’t been asked to provide a unique drink as of yet. Although, we do provide very special drinks that we work with the bride and groom to create. These can be just about anything such as a raspberry mocha with a chocolate raspberry garnishing on the glass. At times we do have some people make drinks up on the spot. One of the most unique drinks that has been created by a guest is the Conquistador. This is a white mocha with our Mexican mocha spices (which include cinnamon, all spice, and a little bit of Cayenne pepper).
