    Catering Supply places perhaps? Failing that, I believe one or two of the sponsors to the left supply them

    Re: Take Away Coffee Mugs

    :-? Hmm...Id question whether anybody would want a mug of milky coffee after a wedding meal?

    If the wedding is being catered, why not just speak with the caterers? Presumably they will have access to appropriate crockery.

    Might just be me, but I dont see a wedding as a "take away" style of function....

    I used to cater and organise weddings - people get an idea in their head, and wont let it go no matter what the practicality of it is.

    If its an evening meal, the coffee take up is likely to only be 20% or so.

    Re: Take Away Coffee Mugs

    Interesting topic, a while ago I was asked to Barista a wedding. Besides it being awesome fun. The idea was like they had hired a cafe for their guests doing their coffee. Guests were told to order anything they would like to order as a normal caffe. 8oz, 12oz, caramel lattes, decafs etc. We had three grinders set up(blend,so and decaf) all sizes of t/a cups, tea you name it we had it. This was a very big wedding for a lawyers daughter in which we supply their law firm coffee. I didnt know what to expect at the time, 4 coffees maybe? No! I got slaughtered and we got so much more repeat business and leads to new cafes it wasnt funny. So I suppose you just dont know what to expect nowadays. :)

    If you are doing single shots per 8oz then I would think you need around 1kg (700g - 900g) beans and around 20litres milk.

    Min 7g per shot x 100 shots = 700g
    7oz milk x 100 = 700oz = 20.7 litres (less microfoam)

    Depends on what size you dose your basket with really, but given that youre talking about 100, just multiply the amount of coffee you use for each shot by that. (somewhere around 1-2kg would be ballpark figure)

    Milks a trickier one, given that its not something everyone has in their coffee... but given the concept that everyone has a flat white, Id suggest about 15 to 20 litres of the white stuff
