Cafés Richard at HOFEX 2015: Bean2Cup
Our team has just got back from Hong Kong where we were helping out in Comptoirs Richard booth at HOFEX 2015.
HOFEX is Asia’s leading food & hospitality tradeshow. This year, HOFEX took place from 6th to 9th May in Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. For the first time this year, after the tremendous success of the last two Grand Barista Championship held in 2011 and 2013, HOFEX hosted Hong Kong Café of the Year competition.
Comptoir Richard booth, located in specialized coffee sector Bean@Cup, offered its visitors the atmosphere of a traditional Parisian café, single origin coffee beans, brew bar and a chance to meet Cafés Richard coffee expert Michael McCauley.
Bangkok News: : Brew bar is soon coming to Bangkok! Visit our booth at Food & Hotel Thailand 2015 in September, learn about different brewing methods, taste our single origin coffee beans and find out more about Third Wave of Coffee.
