The BaristaSista Process



The Set-Up

We find our designated posse, slick on the war paint and bunker down to serve you for a few hours… or a few days, depending on the event! No event is too large or too rough: we’ve worked with groups of 80 to 16,000 – people at formal government venues to mud-slicked partying paddocks! We follow in the immortal words of the Girl Scouts: “always be prepared”.

The Caffeine-Starved Hordes Arrive

Millions descend, coming from all corners of a music festival or conference to get their caffeine hit. Luckily, we’re ready for you! The coffee machine is hot, the milk is fresh from the cow and we’re itching to get grinding! We supply a variety of munchies to keep you going, too.

March 27th

We Take your Order

Here are at BaristaSista we love a challenge! “Double shot short macchiato?” Coming right up!  “Half-shot decaf soy mocha at latte temperature and 2 and a quarter sugars?” Not a problem!  “Black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel, sweet as love.” Yep, we can do that too if you really insist!

March 27th


Now the fun begins! We grind the beans to just the right consistency, fill up the shot and tamper it down. Next, into the machine. We have it set to ‘Coffee Syrupy Goodness’: nothing bitter or tart; it pours from the machine looking like rich buttermilk for about 25 seconds.

March 27th

We get steamy

For those in the latte-loving department, this is where we come in to make it super special. We steam the milk into a dairy whirlpool and create thick foam with barely discernible bubbles (aka. micro-foam nirvana) by spinning and stretching the milk. We froth it until the temperature is just right!

March 27th

We Free Pour

Then, just like Tom Petty we do some “Freeeeeeee Pooooouuuurrrring”. (Okay so the lyrics are “Free Fallin’” but we think it sums it up rather nicely.) Yep, we pour the milk in, getting just the right milk-to-froth-to-coffee ratio. It has been a bit coffee-focused up until this point ‑ we would like to point out that we make a cracking gourmet hot chocolate too, along with so much more!

March 27th

We put a lid on it!

We wouldn’t want you slopping it all over your glad rags (or your animal onesie – depending on where you are) now would we? Rest easy that you can head back into the conference room (or mosh pit!) with both dignity and steaming hot cup of joe (but not too much air punching with your coffee hand please!) That’s a win/win all around, we reckon.

March 27th

Your Satisfaction

We love it when we hear that discernable ‘aaaaaahhh’ that involuntarily comes from our customers when taking their first sip. There is no bigger complement. We love you guys.

The BaristaSista catering philosophy is simple – it has to be fresh, local and tasty.

What we don’t make ourselves we procure from the makers of Tasmania’s finest produce. And we never, ever compromise on quality. Whether it’s feeding thousands hungry mouths – like The Falls Festival – or providing delicious cakes and pastries for a select few (or anything in between) BaristaSista has it covered.

How about:

  • Free-range egg and bacon rolls
  • Fresh fruit platters
  • Sweet muffins & pastries
  • Traditional home-made cakes and biscuits

So, whether it’s our delicious breakfasts or morning and afternoon teas, BaristaSista is the perfect on-site addition to a corporate announcement, a special ‘thank you’ or simply that ‘something special’ at your next conference. With BaristaSista on site, you’ll always make a good impression.
