DolcHeVita summer transformation: 3rd-14th August 2015

As you may have seen from the current staff poll in Aspects, DolcHeVita will close for the last time at 5pm on Friday 31st July for two weeks. We'll be working on a fantastic makeover for the café to create a space for the Aston community to enjoy great food in a welcoming environment.

When the café reopens, you'll notice a few changes:

  • a greater choice of food, including new pastry and savoury food ranges
  • a new, improved quality (but still fair-trade) coffee
  • more of a deli fresh focus on the cafe's food offer, including speciality breads of the week
  • a refreshed cafe environment
  • a new name, as chosen by Aston staff in the current Aspects poll
During this time, we'll still have hot food, sandwiches, snacks and coffee available; from Monday 3rd August until Friday 14th August, Tierra Food Court will be open as below... 
  • Tierra Food Court Traditional Foods will be open 8am to 3.30pm, daily.
  • Tierra Food Court Costa Coffee Bar will be open 8am to 5pm, daily.  

CaféLibro gets ready to welcome the first Starbucks to campus!

CaféLibro will be closed on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th August and will reopen on Friday 7th August as CaféLibro, proudly serving Starbucks. Why are we moving to Starbucks? Aston welcomes students from many nations across the world and Starbucks is one of the largest international coffee brands, especially in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, carrying a stronger brand association than many others. To ensure we're continuing to offer choice and value, we're adding the "We proudly serve Starbucks" concept to ensure our retail outlets continue to meet the diverse needs of our students and staff. If you're passionate about your Costa, don't worry, Tierra Food Court will still offer Costa Coffee. 

Great deals on campus, all year! 

We try to make sure you have great value, throughout your time on campus. You'll find our premium coffees give you better value than the high street and our food offers are also bench marked against other local food outlets to ensure you can enjoy great food without breaking the bank. 

Our TouchPay scheme lets you use your student ID card to pay for food on campus, with an exclusive 10% discount for students, whenever you use it - there's no sign up fee, simply use TouchPay and you'll receive the discount!
