Seasonal Drinks

Two different barista made speciality drinks are available in our cafes each month.

University brand

Barisca is the University of Exeter's own coffee brand, designed with care by the Catering and Retail Team.

Barisca Coffee Co.

A coffee to call your own

The Barisca Coffee Co. brand has been exclusively created by the University Catering and Retail Team. The brand introduces a series of quality Fairtrade blends and products to Exeter, inviting customers to enjoy meaningful conversations in creative, modern environments.

The Fairtrade Barisca Coffee Co. hot drinks range can be found in all University outlets, with the Premium UoE2019 blend available in La Touche Café, Innovation Centre Café, Barisca at the Peter Chalk Centre and Cross Keys. We are currently supporting the #Contactless Coffee initiative to keep reusable cups on the menu.‌

The creation of Barisca Coffee Co. is intended to provide a consistent and identifiable brand standard which resonates with the University community.

Barisca aims to build brand loyalty with the consumer through a selection of superb recognisable product ranges, starting with our own blends of coffee. Customers can experience the quality Barisca brand through creative, relaxed environments on campus, encouraging meaningful conversations to take place around our aromatic coffee.

Our Vision

An ambitious goal to raise the coffee scene on campus by creating a unique brand for the University community to call its own.

From bespoke blends, to exciting seasonal products and events, we want you to share the #bariscalife passion. @bariscacoffeeco

Barisca - The Name

A bit like our coffee, the name Barisca is a clever fusion of classic meets modern. Isca makes reference to the Roman name ‘Exeter’, whilst we play homage to our team of baristas, brewing your daily coffee.

The Barisca Coffee Co. brand can be found in all University outlets as the Fairtrade hot drinks range, including the house blend of coffee.

House Blend

The Barisca Coffee Co. house blend is a deep, intense coffee from Costa Rica, with a full body and lasting taste. Available by the cup from all our University outlets.

Premium Blend

Working closely with a local artisan coffee roaster, we tasted, we tested and we created a premium blend that we know the University community will love. This bespoke coffee has been sourced from Brazil, Columbia and India, with notes of red berry, caramel and chocolate - a great choice for your morning or afternoon coffee break at just 20p more than the House Blend.

Indulge in our premium blend on campus or at home. Bags of whole or ground beans are now available to buy in outlets across our campuses or by the cup from the Innovation Centre, La Touche Café, Barisca at the Peter Chalk Centre and Cross Keys.

If you're running an event on campus, why not hire our Barisca Coffee Co. cart and provide your guests with barista-made Fairtrade hot drinks.

From our bespoke University blend of coffee, to a wide range of teas, cold drinks, tray bakes and snacks, we can provide a full catering service to complement your event anywhere on campus.

We will staff the cart with our baristas and provide a cash bar, giving you an added dimension to your event.
