Brad and Fleur believe that Leaf Bean Machine is about nurturing relationships.
Brad Cassidy, Director
Brad has been working for himself for about 25 years. His first business was via a family opportunity and was a partnership in a restaurant in Perth. Specialising in Mexican food, Brad spent the next 16 years in the hospitality industry with the last restaurant being Santa Fe in Subiaco. After a break in Asia, Commercial Kitchen Systems was purchased, a business specialising in top end food production equipment. This was successful and after 6 years it was time for a break with the family and a trip around Australia. In 2010, Caffe Landucci (now Leaf Bean Machine) was purchased for a new challenge, still in hospitality. Brad believes that ‘good old fashioned’ service is the secret to success and combined with a great team that anything is possible.
Fleur Cassidy, Owner
Fleur’s family were involved in hotels and she has grown up with a strong sense of hospitality and customer service. Leaf Bean Machine is an opportunity for Fleur to realise a long term interest in tea and coffee. Fleur believes in looking after people as she would like to be looked after and that everyone should be passionate about what they do.
Brad enjoyed cooking so much in the restaurants that roasting his own brand of coffee named Karvan to pay homage to their family caravan journey. He frequently attends overseas trade shows and training to keep his skills and knowledge at a high level.
