The University’s relationship with Mulmar was developed by Professor Jonathan Morris from the University of Hertfordshire’s School of Humanities who interviewed the business’ founders for his ESRC-funded research project The Cappuccino Conquests, which traced the global history of Italian-style coffee. The history of Mulmar, a Hatfield-based company specialising in the provision and servicing of coffee equipment, is in many ways emblematic of the UK coffee revolution. Over the years they have worked with Costa, Starbucks, Café Nero, ASK and Pret – as well as a host of independents.

Mulmar also put up a £250 cash prize for a competition to design a new company logo celebrating their anniversary. This was won by Olawale Osunla, a 2nd year student on the Graphic Design Pathway. His animated logo appears at the end of the video.
The coffee festival was attended by over 22,000 visitors where the Mulmar crew all wore shirts displaying the new logo.
