Barista Guild of Europe have aligned with WCE to support the Re:co coffee service during the event in Budapest, June 12-15, and we need your help!

Re:co (Regarding: coffee) is a unique event designed for high-level discussion, leading innovation and strategy development for those passionate and influential in the world of specialty coffee. Through a mixture of speakers, interactive experiences, and opportunities for conversation, Re:co looks at the specialty coffee market, the challenges we face and some of the solutions we have, and also, shines a light on opportunities for growth and development and will delve into how these can be approached.

The Re:co Budapest coffee service has been designed to reflect the topics presented during the talks and will be available for delegates during scheduled coffee breaks throughout the main day. 

The service runs from 7.30am on Monday 12 June until Thursday 15th at 5pm with the following shifts available:

Monday 12 June at Re:co at Pesti Vigado Concert Hall

  • 7:30 – 12:30, AM shift
  • 12:00 – 5:00, PM shift

Tuesday 13 – Thursday 15 June Re:co Interactive at World of Coffee

  • 9:30 – 1:30 AM shift
  • 1:00 – 5:00 PM shift

Baristas would be required to work a minimum of 10 hours with a combination of shifts at Pesti Vigado or WoC . 


Participating in the coffee service is a fantastic chance to meet and network with a broad range of industry professionals. A Re:co Barista Volunteer will benefit from having the opportunity to attend one full Re:co session as well as access to the Re:co Interactive sessions at World of Coffee.

Desired Qualities

Successful applicants to the volunteer position will have a high level of barista skills from a range of different experiences within the industry. Volunteer baristas should be confident that they can perform during a busy coffee service and maintain quality drinks throughout. You should be excited by the prospect of sharing your skills with peers from across Europe and having the opportunity to engage with future business leaders. Volunteers will be required to work in a number of positions during the two days so you should be willing to ‘get stuck in’ and cooperate with all tasks so that we can make the whole coffee service a success.
