    What Coffee to Use in my Cafe

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I am looking to buy a Cafe on the Central Coast and I have a love of quite a few brands of coffee but wanted to get some more opinions.... What coffee brands to you find are consistently great, I know the barista makes a huge difference too but the beans are just the beginning..... Thanks! :)

    Hi mikallev and welcome,

    <<<<<<<<Over yonder, you will find a list of sponsors, many of whom are award winning roasters with real integrity and passion.

    Some options include Coffeesnobs brown, Cuppacoffee, Di Bella, Veneziano, Genovese....

    Might be with having a chat to these guys....

    Good luck ;)

    Hi Mikkallev,
    if you are after an exceptional cup of coffee which is consistant in flavour, and tastes like traditional italian coffee, you should try DiLorenzo Caffe! i have used it in all of my cafes and the customers often comment on its consistancy and the rich flavour! Check it out!

    Hi mikallev,

    I have been roasting my own coffee since 1985 and was born and bred in the coffee industry......I hope this makes my comments worthwhile to read:

    When you are in business you need access to good service & support so that there is only ever minimal disruption in the event of a problem OR, for you to lean on and learn the ropes.

    Taking a list of theoretical potential coffee suppliers from this list will not help you with good support and service if you are buyinmg your beans by mail order.

    Suggest you look at local coffee suppliers only, the ones that canlook after you in your business and who will visit you regularly and help with coffee education and equipment service.

    If its an existing cafe there is undoubtedly an encumbent coffee supplier. He should get your first look as he is already servicing the business.

    There is therefore a lot of stuff to consider in addition to what you think is a good quality supply, partiucularly if
    1) the supposed good coffee supply just turns up in a box from outa town with no service and
    2) if you dont have good staff or access to a good barista education scheme so that no matter what quality of beans go into the grinder, it all comes out crap at the end.

    Therefore, suppport your local roaster if there is one and if after all that you must buy from out of area from someone that cant offer you any local service but the coffee is great....consider us at CosmoreX Coffee!

    PS there was mention above of the dreaded "c" word (consitency or consistant):
    If your thing is to support small traders who purvey a "hand made" fresh product then I am afraid there can be no consitency and you have to accept that. Fresh roasted coffee cant be consistent.....it is roasted, it develops, it plateaus, then it falls. There is nothing consistent about it but that is the nature of its charm...... Also you are in the hands of an artisan not an automatic machine that does everything exactly the same every time.

    If you really want "consistency" you will I am afraid have to go with one of the many imported products or one from a large local roaster where the coffee has been automatically roasted, gas flushed and packed, and possibly even aged over time for long enough to have become very consitent.

    So you have to decide, what type of supplier and supply do you want, and the meaning of the word "consistency" is not necessarily what you think....and that is why I call it the dreaded "c"word....because most people misunderstand its true meaning if you are taling about freshly roasted coffee beans.
