#Treatup This April With Celeste Wong’s Baileys Coffee Cocktails For London Coffee Festival

Like your coffee with an indulgent twist? Then pop along to this year’s London Coffee Festival or Shoreditch’s Old Street Records to try a delicious Baileys coffee cocktail created by top barista and The Treat Collective’s creative Celeste Wong.

Having worked in some of the world’s best artisan cafes and been named one of London’s top baristas, Celeste knows a thing or two about how to make good coffee taste even finer, “‘Baileys is the perfect addition to a cup of coffee, the sweet and indulgent side of the Irish drink perfectly balances out the bitter taste from the coffee – a real treat for your tastebuds.” She will be demonstrating how to make her Baileys coffee creation, the Mocha Nut – at this year’s London Coffee Festival, Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th April, at The Grind Lab.
