On the podcast this week we speak to three leading lights in the Sydney coffee community to explore how Covid-19 has impacted the influential Australian coffee market and how it has begun to recover.
With cafés already open and thriving across Sydney and other parts of Australia, we get a glimpse into what the coffee landscape might look like once global vaccination efforts begin to take effect, and how café owners should start preparing for a return to a new normality.
Jenny Willits, CEO, Seven Miles Coffee Roasters, discusses the booming coffee-at-home trend and how cafés must adapt to the needs of a more knowledgeable consumer.
Nich Rae, Head of Coffee for Toby’s Estate, explores how the pandemic affected café volumes and gets us up to speed with the latest trends emerging from Sydney’s influential coffee scene.
We’ll also hear from Melinda Evans, Operations Manager for Mecca Coffee Roasters on the trends that are impacting Mecca’s business and how it is putting sustainability promises into practice.
