We don’t mind saying, we were absolutely overwhelmed with the incredible turnout on Wednesday night, as we flung open the doors of our brand-spanking new roastery - in London’s Maryland.
We can barely express our collective appreciation to you - our dear friends, family, colleagues, partners and customers - for helping us celebrate this momentous event, which we believe marks the beginning of a new era for everyone here at The Gentlemen Baristas. If you enjoyed the shindig anything as much as we did, then a stupendously good time was had by all.
Whether you were supping delectable cocktails; indulging in the delightfully palatable food, bakes and cakes; dancing the night away; partaking in the ever so competitive coffee sack race or just getting the lowdown on the roastery and our SCA standard training school, the shindig just wouldn’t have been the same without you. And we doff our hats to each and every one of you lovely people.
We would also like to express our deep gratitude to the wonderful folk at Leytonstone Tavern, and Mermaid Gin for keeping our bar stocked, and to Tom Byrne for being the best bartender ever, to Bryan & the team at Minor Figures for your support, to HACKNEY GELATO and Longboys for some lovely sweet treats, and to Ally & Pattn for some particularly excellent DJing on the night.
We couldn’t have done it without you all.
