Why Us?: Beverage Branding and Stencils


Beverage Branding


       Beverage branding, a common request that many of our clients make when booking an event, is one of the things we, Espresso Bella, pride ourselves in. It allows our company to stand out from many other coffee catering companies, and we always get great feedback afterwards. 

      For those of you that are unfamiliar with the term 'beverage branding', it is an edible image, logo, picture, monogram, or even quote that can be placed on the top of your coffee, and because it is made of sugar and food colouring, the image blends perfectly with your drink. The best part, it does not alter the flavour of the drink whatsoever! 

         
      
       Beverage branding is a great tool that can be used to promote your business and get the whole room to notice your brand, because it is not being promoted on the cup, or the sleeve, but right on the top of the drink! It allows your guests to look down into their hand-crafted beverage and see a logo, image, or wording of your choice right there in the palm of their hands. 

       We take great pride in being the only company in Canada to beverage brand drinks with more than just a logo. We give our customers many options as to what they can place on their drink. Beverage branding allows us to add a special touch to all the drink we make, and wow our customers, and your guests every single time! 


       Stencils are another unique touch that we provide our customers with! We create the stencils ourselves, and they can be wording, or even logos! Once the stencils are made, we place it on top of the drink, sprinkle some chocolate or cinnamon powder, and there you have it, a customized design in your cup!  

       If you're looking for a new, unique way to advertise your brand, or if you're just looking to wow your guests at your next event, book with us today at www.espressobella.ca. We promise you won't be disappointed!

Requesting A Quote



Requesting A Quote

       Hey, it's Vanessa and I have some exciting news to share! Today on our YouTube Channel (@ Espresso Bella Coffee Bar Catering Toronto) a video was uploaded on how to request a quote online through our website. Visit our YouTube channel to see how to do this step-by-step and continue reading for some more important information when requesting a quote. 

       Requesting a quote online is one of the more common ways to request a quote; however, calling in and going through the process on the phone is always possible. Our catering directors are always available to walk you through it and answer any other questions you might have. 

       Before you decide to call or go through our website (www.espressobella.ca), here is some basic information you must be ready to answer: the number of approximate guests that will attend your event. This is important because it gives us an idea of how much product to bring, as well, the number of guests helps to form the price. The start and end time of your event is also a key component. This lets us know how long we will be serving for. Lastly, the city in which your event will be held at is also a need to know because it informs us on how far we will need to travel to get to the event.




       If you decide to fill out a request form online and you still have outstanding questions, please always feel free to give us a call! We are always happy to help! 

       With all that being said, if you are having a event and are looking for an added touch be sure to check out our social media accounts listed below to see some previous events we have done; as well. visit our website www.espressobella.ca to request a quote or call in at 416-252-7876.

Vanessa's First Catering Event


My First Catering Event

       It's Vanessa! Last Wednesday October 11th wasn't my regular go to the office and do work kind of day. Instead, that day I had my very first catering event! Cassandra picked me up straight from school and we were on our way with a thirty minute drive ahead of us. The event was for two hours in Brampton at a television show set, where Bravo's Imposters was being filmed!

       When we finally reached our destination, it was somewhere both Cassandra and I have never been before. At first glance, the location we were sent to did not look like a place where a television show would be filmed, but more like a carnival. About twenty minutes after we arrived, we were all set up and ready to serve! Some crew members even provided us with a tent to block out the wind because we were serving outside. If it wasn't for that tent, we would have been rained on and frozen, so we really appreciate and are so thankful for it! 

   
    As soon as the espresso machine was heated, and up and running, a huge line of people appeared in front of us with the line up going outside the tent and onto the sidewalk! People were not only ordering a drink for themselves, but had a whole list of drinks for other cast and crew members. It was so busy, I loved it! Every single person in line was so great! They were patient, kind and great conversationists, which made my experience one thousand times better. I loved this event because I got to experience first hand what catering events is all about and learn and practice making all the drinks we serve! Our menu consisted of espresso, americano, cappuccino, latte, mochaccino, macchiato, hot chocolate, and a variety of tea! Mochaccino was the most popular because it is a mix of a cappuccino and chocolate! It is also one of my favourites. 

       After two hours of catering, it was time for us to pack up. Packing all the items away was a lot easier and faster than unpacking them which was good; however, I was sad to leave because I had so much fun, and learned a lot! I cannot wait to serve at more events! Thank you to GEP Imposters Inc. for choosing Espresso Bella to cater your event! We had a fantastic time, and really hope to work with you again.

First Day On The Job


My First Day at Work


       It's Vanessa... again! Today I'm going to take you all on a little journey through my first day working at Espresso Bella on September 27, 2017. Before I get into my day, I want to talk a little bit about the vibe Espresso Bella and the employees and owners gave me. The place itself is a very cute, cozy, and home-like place, and as for the people, they were great! They were all very welcoming, kind, and they made you feel like family.

       Now, the start of my day! First I was taught all the machines we carry, the types of capsules, beans, and grounds we carry and finally, all the accessories that are needed to give you the perfect espresso experience. If you're looking to find the ideal espresso machine - like my last blog said, the MinEbella or honestly any of our other products are amazing; however, we have a variety of machines and brands to choose from. On my first day of work, I also tried my first espresso ever! Isn't it ironic how I have never tried an espresso until my first day of work, yet I applied to an espresso bar catering company? To say the least, the espresso was delicious and I will definitely be having lots more in the future. When I made my espresso I added two pumps of hazelnut syrup to spice it up a little. Although, it was so hard to choose which flavour to add considering we have so many, such as vanilla, peppermint, English toffee, chai tea, and so much more


       
       Lastly, at the end of the day, I familiarized myself with all of our social media accounts. Espresso Bella's platform and involvement on social media is huge and continuing to grow as you read this! If you want to be apart of this growth, follow us on:

Machine Tutorial



The MinEBella


       It's Vanessa! Today I got to test out Espresso Bella's very own capsule base espresso machine, and make an espresso using the MinEBella! I've never used a machine that has came straight from Italy until today, and honestly the experience I had was great. The water only took 60 seconds to heat up and not only was it quick, but it was so easy to use. No confusing buttons; one on/off button, and one button that allows the espresso to come out. The machine is perfect for people like me, because I am such a klutz. This machine is mistake proof, and very small, cute, and compact, hence the name MinEBella. Not only did the machine, with its cool features such as the empty capsules dropping into the holding container, and its ability to hold 8-15 empty capsules impress me, but the espresso itself was to die for!






       I am more of a lighter blend lover, so I tried the crema blend! However, for those of you who love a rich, dark blend, don't panic! Espresso Bella carries an aroma blend, and it is perfect for you! I would definitely recommend this machine to all espresso lovers; and those of you who are still trying to find the perfect espresso, look no further! Check out our YouTube video next week to see me use the MinEBella for the first time and visit our website for more information! www.espressobella.com
