Orzo♥Coffee is very happy to announce its participation to the London VegFest 2013 at Kensington Olympia on the 5th and 6th of October 2013 (Stand G10).
“We are very excited to be part of this event and more importantly to be part of the Movement behind it” says Cristina Comunian, Communication manager at Orzo♥Coffee, “VegFest is the ideal venue for us, we want to engage with customers ready to truly experience food and discover new worlds, people who care about what they eat and how this impact the world we live in.”
Orzo♥Coffee believes that the happiest customer is the best informed customer. In our case we like people to understand how much caffeine they drink and how this can impact their health in the shorter and longer term. From our experience during other events, we have seen that few people know how their decaffeinated drink is processed, and how much caffeine it actually still contains.We want to change this, and let people know that there is a healthier option for when they want to have a hot drink with NO caffeine. Unlike decaffeinated coffee and tea which are heavily processed to extract caffeine, Orzo♥Coffee barley is naturally caffeine-free, and organically grown and roasted in Italy.
Orzo♥Coffee is planning some exciting activities for the VegFest, simply follow @orzocoffee and use the #orzofest ashtag to keep up to date and be part of the fest. Post a photo of our stand or yourself enjoying Orzo♥Coffee on our facebook wall or using the ashtag #orzofest and you will be entered in a prize draw to win a lovely Orzo♥Coffee hamper.
Orzo♥Coffee will be serving free tasting of organic Italian ground roasted barley (caffèd’orzo) to all visitors. Furthermore, everyone buying two or more Orzo♥Coffee products at the event will receive a free eco-friendly jute bag. Cristina concludes “We look forward to breaking our personal record of orzo brewing (current record is 796 cups in 2 days) and meeting more people in front of a cup of freshly brewed Orzo♥Coffee”.

About the book ...
A Taste for All Seasons by Carolyn Humphries
This book addresses all of these issues and takes us month by month through the maze of what to eat and from where. It re-introduces us to a healthy lifestyle and provides good recipes that make the most of all of the seasonal produce that is available to us throughout the year. We just can’t go on repeating the same old mistakes, for example flying fruit and vegetables to our supermarkets out of season. By the time we get it, the food itself has little value in terms of nutrition and we just can’t afford the cost in greenhouse gases any more. The problem is that nobody taught us about the intricacies of our local seasons and how they produce much more flavoursome and very much healthier eating. Carolyn explains everything here.
If you were wondering how the adventurous team of OrzoCoffee spends their summer holidays, then here is the answer.
Chasing Rhinos around Southampton on a sunny safari of course!
This is our little photographic tribute to a lovely walk around our town meeting the friendly Rhinos (they stand still and love to be in photos ;-).
If you want to find out more about this initiative, supporting Marwell Zoo and other local charities - visit Go Rhinos !
