Coffee Roasters on The Northern Beaches

Coffee Roasters on The Northern Beaches

 

 

This page is designed to showcase local Coffee Roasters on The Northern Beaches and North Shore to help buyers and cafe owners become more aware of the options available to them.

 

I have added this page as I am often asked for suggestions and recommendations from people buying cafes as well as existing operators who may be shopping around for a new bean or better deal.

 

The roasters listed on this page are all companies that either I have worked with directly or my clients  work with currently.

 

As with anything it pays to shop around when looking for a coffee supplier and, your decision to work with a particular roaster should be based on many different criteria.

 

It is quite likely that whoever you chose are going to become one of your biggest suppliers so you need to make sure that you feel that you can work long term with the roaster and that they will support you on an ongoing basis.

 

Whilst I am a great advocate for driving margins and reducing food costs wherever possible the price per kilo should be lower down your list of questions when speaking to roasters. In my opinion it is far more important to see how you will be able to work together to grow your business, after all the better you do the better they will do.

 

Many roasters will help you out with equipment, training and branding in return for agreeing to buy from them for a certain period of time, currently this seems to range from 1-3 years.

 

One of the best things I can suggest for you to do is to go and visit all of the roasters that you are considering. Meet with the owners, sales reps and roasters and get to know the company, decide whether they are the type of company that you can see yourself working with long term.

 

Once you have visited a few roasters and of course tasted more espresso than you thought possible then you can start thinking about price.

 

In most cases the price per kilo will not vary greatly between like for like roasters, you should really be motivated by taste of the coffee and your feel for the company when making your final decision.

 

As coffee is likely to be one of the mainstays of your business and your customers will vote with their feet if it is not good enough then opting for an inferior bean to save a couple of dollars per kilo will hurt the top line more than it will help the bottom line.

 

I hope this page helps you become more aware of some of the great Coffee Roasters on The Northern Beaches that you have to choose from, if you have any questions, comments or feedback please feel free to get in touch anytime.

The Background Coffee  journey began back in 2009 when Lecio (owner) set up his first café serving speciality coffee in Manly.

 

After successfully operating the business for 12 months Lecio decided to install a 2Kg top bench roaster inside the shop. The locals loved the flavours of the high quality speciality coffee and the café became a huge success.

 

From there the demand for Lecio to supply other cafes began to grow and in 2012 Background Coffee was established. Since then the wholesale business has grown significantly and is recognised as one of the leading roasters on the Northern Beaches.

 

Background take a wholistic approach with their clients and in addition to providing barista training and equipment maintenance Lecio and his wife Patricia also use their experience of buying and selling cafes to help owners improve profitability and systems in their cafes.

How to Sell a Cafe - Changes to Lending Criteria

How to Sell a Cafe – Changes to Lending Criteria

I wanted to make you aware of some changes that we’ve noticed recently with the lending criteria and the way that banks are looking at small business finance in particular with business loans for cafes and food businesses.

These changes could affect the sale of your cafe in the later stages which is naturally something that we want to try and avoid.

With this in mind, we’re going to change the way that we’re working and the way that we are preparing our clients’ businesses for sale and I wanted to give you the heads up quickly so that you’ve got the opportunity to do the same.

We have become aware of this change through a client of ours who’s got a really good buyer lined up. This person has industry experience, they have got cash in the bank, they’ve got good equity in their property and they have made a solid offer.

On paper these guys are ticking all of the boxes, they are the kind of buyer that you wish there was more of.

The deal has gone really smoothly. up until the point that the bank have looked in more detail about the lease.

The lease is a five by five, there are four years gone, so there’s one plus five left which in terms of return on investment and for the level of the deal itself is quite reasonable.

The buyers had previously spoken with their finance broker about the lease term and he saw no problem with it at all.
When the broker submitted the paperwork to the bank however there now seems to be a shift in the way that they are now looking at the remaining term before the option.

Because there is only a relatively short period of time left on the lease before the time that option is due to be exercised the bank has now refused to lend on that business.

 

It now appears that the time frame that you need to focus on is not the just the overall term but also the period of time remaining before the option kicks in.
If you’ve got a business that you’re looking to sell and, that someone is going to need finance for, you should be aware of this and prepare accordingly.

 

By preparing thoroughly you can overcome the problem before it arises which is really what good exit planning is all about.
Hopefully that’s given you a little bit of an insight into an extra something that’s worth taking into account as you start preparing your cafe for sale and maybe that will be one thing that helps you to get your deal across the line a little quicker.

I wish you all the best with the sale of you business and please feel free to let us know if you have any questions at all.
