Tips to Choosing the Right Coffee Supplier for Your New Cafe

Posted by Chris Sharp on

Crave Coffee is an Australian coffee bean supplier across Australia. We sell our coffee direct to the public at our Espresso Bar in Alexandria, NSW, and we also sell our wholesale beans direct to cafes and restaurants. If you’re running a cafe, choosing the right coffee bean supplier can potentially have the biggest impact on the success of your business. Here’s some tips to get you started.

Get the facts

Now if you’re looking into a new coffee bean supplier you need to educate yourself on the coffee world. Get to know the different blends, where they’re sourced and how they’re being roasted. This knowledge will be invaluable for you whilst you look for a supplier.

Do your research

You want to check out the experience of a potential supplier and what their reputation is in the industry. This background research is the most essential part of selecting a supplier. Get to know their product line, look at where they’re sourcing their beans from and the quality grade. Also, you need to look at where and how they roast the beans to ensure you’re getting the best quality product.

Think about price

It’s very tempting to look at saving money wherever you can when it comes to running a business and, therefore, many people will go for the best deal. When it comes to quality coffee beans, more often than not you get what you pay for. If you’re sourcing coffee beans for your café then the reputation of the coffee you sell will greatly determine whether customers return as repeat customers. On that note, spending money on quality, great tasting coffee will result in a greater return through the life of your business.
