Hi there CGer's
I've just inherited the job for my local surf club (on the North Coast of NSW) to source the best coffee supplier who also provides training and servicing etc.
The most important thing is GREAT COFFEE, however as we are a not for profit club, we don't have big bucks to outlay to purchase a new machine outright. I realize that some of the smaller suppliers and wholesalers have better coffee than the big commercial brands, but it's proving difficult to find one that also helps with machine maintenance, leasing and barista training etc.
Does anyone have any suggestions out there that might help me with my conundrum?

Good Coffee suppliers look for good coffee knowledge then kilos of coffee you would go through to establish providing equipment and service, and they will help you reach your potential . All you need is to prove that you love coffee and talk about how many kilos you think you will do, word of warning to not tie yourself with contracts.

Hello guys, if you want my advice for a good coffee, try Carraresi Coffee. I am Italian and a friend told me that now they sell it in Australia. A good coffee with a low price for wholesalers. The site is www.carraresi.com.au I hope to be helpful.
