Espresso Bar Catering


Some of Our Most Memorable Events

Here at Espresso Bella Inc. we not only have a never ending passion for Coffee, but we also
enjoy delivering Quality Service. Espresso Bella Inc. Espresso Bar Catering is a specialty service that brings forth both Quality and Class. Espresso Bella Inc. has the pleasure of servicing all types of events. From grand venues, to small private functions, we have the ability to customize our Espresso Bar and set up at virtually any location. Over the past 12 years, we have had the pleasure of servicing quite the number of events. We have traveled both in and out of the province to do our part in creating a successful event for our clients. It is truly rewarding to not only see and hear our client’s reactions to their freshly made-to-order beverages, but to be a part of some amazing events in some incredible venues. Although no two Espresso Bar Catering events are the same, and all are worth recognition, here are some of our most memorable catering events.

One of our largest guest count events we serviced was at The Santa Claus Parade in Downtown Toronto for Nintendo WiU.  With a guest count of about 10 thousand, our Barista's were very busy!  Our client decided to customize their Espresso Bar to strictly Hot Chocolate as the parade catered mostly to children - and we were beyond ecstatic to do so! Espresso Bella Inc. gives our clients the option to customize the bar to any desire. We have presented Hot Chocolate Bars, Canadian Coffee Bars, and even Iced Coffee Bars...anything specialty. We understand that everyone has a preference and that regardless of what beverage is in your cup, it should be a beautiful one!

Our largest multi location/man-powered events was when we worked closely with a high end client who had an event set up at eight different locations on the same day at different malls across Ontario.  We were so grateful to be a part of this event. We had eight of our Baristas set up with a customized Espresso Bar that incorporated themed desserts to compliment the beverages.   Our Catering Directors worked in-synch with our in-house Baker to get all the deserts and Espresso Bars packed up and ready for pick up the day before the event, ensuring that every Barista had everything they needed. 

            We had the pleasure of taking our Espresso Bar where some said it couldn't go...on the Toronto Ferry Boat and on to Toronto's Ward Island.  Our Baristas walked the mobile espresso bar through the streets of Ward's Island all the way to the wedding chapel in time to serve all the guests some delicious specialty beverages. Read more about the event as featured in the Toronto Life Magazine!

Another memorable event was when we had the opportunity to cater a private function for the Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Team. We worked closely with an event agency and catered an Alumni & Team dinner at a Golf Course in Ontario. The entire team enjoyed and indulged in quality espresso beverages, as our Baristas indulged in the once of a life time experience, up close and personal with all the team players! We truly love what we do, and when we cater events like these, and all events for that matter, we cater them with such gratitude and pride! 

               Espresso Bella Inc. aims for prestige! Whether it is an event big or small, we love creating a beautiful experience for our clients! Our team of Catering Directors can be reached by phone or email and invite you to fill out a Quote Request Form located on our homepage. You are also always welcome to stop by our Stouffville Showroom where you can taste our Espresso, chat with our team and see our machines in action!

This is one of our favourite times of the year! As you may (or may not) know, one of our many talents and specialties is Espresso Bar Catering! Although we
have and can cater all types of events- Tradeshows, Corporate, Private functions, etc- Weddings have become very popular for us!
Our Espresso Bar Catering caters to weddings all over the GTA.

Our team of catering directors will work with you every step of the way!

Cleaning up your Espresso/Coffee Bar

Revamping Your Espresso Bar!

With Spring finally here, we can’t help but gain the urge to purge! Spring Cleaning sure has its benefits, but can be time consuming! Here are some quick, easy and affordable tips to Cleaning out your Espresso Set Up and adding some fresh spunk to your Home Coffee Bar!

The key to a Clean, Fresh looking Espresso Bar is to keep things nice and tidy!

 Everything on your bar (or kitchen counter) should have a place!

Keep your espresso beans, grounds or capsules in an air tight container, or on a shelf, or rack!
You can find affordable glass air tight containers at various dollar stores/ grocery stores. Many come with labels that you can customize. This allows you to have more variety on your bar without having it look cluttered or messy.

Mesh-Top Shakers come in handy when wanting to top your drink off with something sweet, but don't want to deal with the mess!
Fill them with cinnamon, cocoa powder or anything your sweet tooth desires!
Great news, they're also available on our Online Store and In showroom!

Dose your machine have a heating rack on top? Remember to place your cups & mugs right side up! Placing them upside-down will heat the rim of the cup only- this is a recipe for a burnt lip!
allowing the bottom of the glass or mug to heat will keep your coffee beverage warmer for a longer period of time- since this is the first place the coffee hits when pouring into your cup.
You can also fill your glass/mug with warm water and let that help heat the cup while you set up your coffee. Dump the water out right before you are ready to pour your coffee.

Knock boxes are key to keeping a mess-free counter- especially with espresso machines that use grounds!
Breville has come out with a Stainless Steel Knock box that will go with any kitchen! The Knock box comes in two sizes and is made with a durable bar to “knock” your used grinds from your handle for a mess-free espresso, every time. The Knock box is lined with a removable rubber bucket that is easy to dump and rinse, eliminating the process of having to knock your grinds into a bag or garbage container, avoiding possible contamination.

To Purchase your Knock Box, visit our Online Store

Cleaning Up?
*Always remember to keep a damp cloth nearby*
this will come in handy for wiping your frothing wand after frothing milk & steaming it.

All removable parts of your Espresso machine can be cleaned in your sink with soap and warm water or in your dishwasher.  Confirm with machine manual*

Glass vs. Stainless Steel


The Breville IQ Kettle Pure
German Schott Glass – high quality, thermal shock resistant

As #Resolution month is coming to an end, we thought we would focus in on some health benefits found in our products at our very own showroom.
We all (hopefully) know and understand the harm in using plastic bottles and containers to carry our coffee or tea on the go. There are a ton of harmful chemicals in these products that are then released into our yummy beverages, and then into us!

Some of the 'better' quality bottles and containers are considered to be Stainless Steel and Glass.
Stainless Steel is very popular in the Coffee industry- Travel mugs, Coffee pots and even kettles.
But is it as safe as society believes?

Stainless Steel bottles, pots and Kettles:
  • Contain a Metal which may leach BPA
  • Many “stainless steel” products are actually made from aluminum, which is linked to Alzheimer’s. Products made from this material generally also have a plastic liner that can contain BPA or other chemicals
  • Stainless steel products can leach iron, chromium and nickel into alkaline and acidic beverages

When we recently received our shipment of the Breville IQ Kettle Pure, we decided to find out for ourselves.

The German Schott Glass IQ Kettle Pure and other glass products:

  • Made from naturally abundant materials, like sand, limestone and soda ash
  • Durable – will not degrade over time
  • Won’t leach chemicals
  • Can be used for liquids other than water without affecting the material or absorbing tastes and odors
  • Dishwasher-safe
  • Glass is 100 percent recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity. An estimated 80 percent of recovered glass containers are made into new glass bottles.
  • A glass container can go from a recycling bin to a store shelf in as little as 30 days.
  • Suitable for hot or cold beverages

Let's start 2017 off on the right note and continue this #healthphenomena for the entire year!
Switch over to Glass products where applicable. Read your labels and care for products as required!
We guarantee your #Espressobellas will taste that much better knowing the cup, glass, pot, or kettle you choose to make it in isn't affecting your health!
