The Curated Plate

We’ve had to sit on our hands these past weeks to keep the launch of Australia’s most exciting food festival a secret! Thankfully, this amazing four day food festival is now launched and we can start to share some of what’s happening.

The Curated Plate is a four day food extravaganza right here in our backyard of The Sunny Coast! Eep! We’re feeling pretty stoked to be the chosen home for this food fiesta, and fiesta it will be. As well as a host of collaboration dinners and famous chefs flying in from around the globe, there will be jet ski adventures , beach BBQs, and dinners under the stars.

But wait, there’s more. Groundskeeper Willie will be hosting a series of coffee and tea workshops to show ya’ll how to make some cool recipes and take coffee well beyond a morning ritual.

While we all thought he was just bumming around, all that time in Aspen and Edinburgh mixing cocktails at swanky bars has paid off for Will, and now he’s ready to share his mixology magic.

So save the date - August 8-11, 2019 and here’s a sneak peek…

We’ll release more info soon on what’s going on with The Curated Plate. In the meantime follow along our pages on Facebook/Insta!

Sunshine and Pineapples

A Sunshine Coast event at the Big Pineapple… it’s a match made in heaven. The Food and Agribusiness Network (FAN) is hosting a Meet the Makers event showcasing the best of our local food and agribusiness industry, and you can come along!

Stretching right across the Greater Sunshine Coast - Gympie, Noosa, Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay, the network has over 260 members from across the food value chain. From chocolate to fingerlimes, honey to beer… it’s all here in our Sunny Coast bowl of goodness!
 
Yours truly will be rolling in and serving up samples for you all to try. There may even be a surprise in store.

Most of all we’re just excited to get to try all the other exhibitor’s samples, while mid-renovation we don’t get out as much as we’d like these days.

Pups and Chinos

Wow, what an amazing turnout for our first Pups and Chinos event raising money for the Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge!

If you haven’t noticed by now, we’re CRAZY about dogs and our mission is to improve the lives of dogs both locally and beyond, in the coffee regions we source from. We donate an ongoing $1 a kilo to dog organisations and this was the first of many events to raise some further funds for our current cause, Sunshine Coast Animal Rescue.

Together with Noosa Dog Cakes biscuits, and delicious banana ‘n bacon pupcakes we served over 90 puppaccinos to the most amazing (and furry) customers!

We loved meeting your best friends. Some of your coffee roasters’ highlights:

  • Dachshunds in pirate costumes… YARRRRR

  • Celebrating Ruby’s 4th birthday with a puppaccino (complete with tutu! so cute!)

  • Commenting on how quiet the dogs were being, only to hear a sudden bark-fiesta!

  • Dogs of all shapes and sizes sniffing out new friends and enjoying a fun day out!
