What do you call artists who can also brew a mean cup of coffee at the same time?

Our top team of bartistas - James Gray, ROL and Frances Whitehouse.

Bartistas, of course! (Barista + artist).

The Christie's Staff Summer Exhibition is back in town, and we were really humbled to be called back to run a pop-up cafe at their King Street Head Office. Unlike the previous event, we were given free reign of their new in-house Cafe, complete with tables, chairs etc this time round :)

Armed with endless supplies of Orzo Coffee (healthy and delicious Italian alternative to coffee which is 100 percent naturally caffeine free), kindly donated by Roberta, the bartistas served up cup-after-cup to the many Christie's staff, as well as their clients, who stopped by to support us. At only £1 a cup, the organic ground roasted barley with its smooth taste and intense aroma proved to be a hit.

Many congratulations to Ms Natalia Voinova who was our winner in the raffle draw. She took home packs of Orzo coffee pods, a beautiful & original painting by James Gray, plus the Cafe Art MyLondon 2017 calendar once it's launch in October. Well done again, Natalia!

Lastly, many thanks to Lynda Mcleod, Martina Hopocka, Toby Monk and everyone at Christie's for making this happen for the bartistas and Cafe Art - much appreciated!
