In this post, I’ll be giving you an insight into how we started our coffee business and why.
We initially began by selling our own freshly roasted coffee beans. These beans are all our own blends which we are proud to put our name onto. The coffee we sell caters to a large range of coffee drinkers. Within our household there are different coffee drinkers based on the mood of that day. The majority of that is an espresso for John and a latte for Sarah.
By getting our name out there at many local markets, we always had in the back of our mind the idea of having a mobile coffee cart. Through some very good luck, we found a setup that only needed very minor modifications to be suitable for our needs, and before we knew it, we had our local council out to inspect the “premises.”
A lot of hard work was put in by myself and my wife Sarah. We wanted to be hands on in the build process so that we could control how things operated. Myself being very hands on also means I have a deeper understanding of how things work, helping me in bringing an awesome coffee experience to you.
So why do we do what we do? We get asked this quite a lot, and the simple answer is this, we absolutely LOVE coffee. Although I have brought my consumption down a bit in recent years, I really enjoy a lovely tasting cup of coffee. One problem I had however, was that I simply couldn’t find a blend that I really enjoyed. You know the one, the blend that makes you want to get to sleep so the morning comes around quicker so you can get out of bed and brew a nice shot of coffee. The blend that leaves your tastebuds just wanting more. That blend for me, is our Caramella blend. This is the blend we use in our cart as well.
Yes there are stronger blends out there, but I want to be able to taste the subtle flavours that are unlocked during roasting and not scare people away with my coffee breath!
Being able to get out to events to bring a cafe experience to customers is our passion, I mean lets be honest, there isn’t much else that’ll get me out of bed on a Sunday at 5am to prepare for the day.
Until next time
