Emirati-grown purveyor of specialty coffees, Baristas’ Corner in partnership with Dalla Corte, Italian brand of espresso coffee machines, hosted The Coffee & Talks in Dubai event on February 14, 2020. Attended by VIPs, media partners & bloggers, baristas & coffee roasters, highlights of the evening include informal chats and conversations over steaming cups of coffee, an exciting latte art throwdown, coffee tastings and keynote presentations. The event brought all coffee lovers under one roof at C Central Resort The Palm, in the stunning and breathtaking Palm Jumeirah.

It was a special gathering dedicated to espresso workshops, coffee education and coffee experiences, and a captivating latte-art competition, the grand finale where young and ambitious baristas took the opportunity to demonstrate their skills. The first prize winner took home a Dalla Corte Studio.

Spearheaded by Emirati entrepreneurs Mr. Abdulla Al Abdulla, Partner and Co-Founder and Mr. Mohamed Hassan Alshamsi, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of the company, Baristas’ Corner offers a tranquil space for coffee connoisseurs and caffeine addicts to enjoy the art of coffee. Baristas’ Corner has three cafes all over the UAE.
