Brad and I bought Leaf Bean Machine 5 and a half years ago with a passion for developing our own tea and coffee brands. We have always been in business together and love building relationships with people via our products.
Brad is a jack of all trades and very willing to have a go at most things but he is in charge of production and roasts all of our award winning Karvan Coffee. I joke and say that I am in charge of everything else, but really my focus is on sales, marketing and promotions. Leaf Bean Machine is our parent company for our ‘babies’, Karvan Coffee, Pure Tea and Wega Coffee Machines.
We started with an empty warehouse and have created a purpose built cupping lab and training room for wholesale, school and home barista classes as well as our quality control and tasting. Over the last 5 and a half years our service department has been instrumental to the growth of Leaf Bean Machine and has developed into the service department it is today – an organised, reliable, customer focused support for our clients.
Our roasting area has seen the most change as we have gone from one 30kg roaster to the restoration of a vintage Sasa Samiac and the recent purchase of a 6kg Giesen. With 3 roasters, our in house designed silo bean storage and our bean delivery system we have quite the production area. Of course there are always other coffee gadgets that Brad has his eye on or is designing.
Leaf Bean Machine’s showroom/shop welcomes many local customers and those who drive for their favourite coffee and customer service of course!
Brad and I always have ideas and goals in the pipeline so stay tuned for the next update…….
