inter is finally here, and all I can say is that we’ve had an exceptionally warm start to the season. With global warming worries aside, it has been pretty damn nice. Still, the lure of an open fire and a good read in hand is tempting us, so here’s what’s in store for this issue. In this edition we’ve got it all covered. For coffee we have Andrew Hetzel’s Value at Origin article and Brendan Baxter in El Salvador, and a bit of hot chocolate for winter, which explores chocolate as a single origin offering, along with some delicious DaVinci recipes. Food is taken care of through the Masterpieces program, with some amazing recipes from Proud Mary and Stagger Lee’s, and Mel Sharpe updates us on the latest food trends. Along with travel stories from Andy Freeman and our adventurous Christine Cottrell, we also have something for you on design, recycling and some really helpful information on staffing from Michael Drummond, one of our newest contributors. New to the pages of Café Culture Magazine is the contributors acknowledgement. This page highlights just some of our amazing contributors – passionate industry people who so graciously share their knowledge with us and make my life so much easier by providing some great articles and images. Thanks to all these people for their commitment to Café Culture over and above in their busy lives.

Above NEWS FROM

EMOTIONAL CURRENCY: THE POWER OF GOODWILL

8-9.indd 9

JOHN STUART, Chairman of Quaker Oats Company, said circa 1900: “If this business were split up, I would give you the land and bricks and mortar, and I would take the brands and trademarks, and I would fare better than you”. Before the concept of marketing or branding as we know it today came about, Stuart made an important and forward-thinking realisation about its importance to a business. In the beginning, a brand differentiated one product from another, so a consumer could associate a set of attributes with a particular name, allowing them to distinguish between available products and form a preference for one company’s product over another. Fast-forward to 2014, and a brand is the only thing a company has left to compete on. Brands are inimitable; a competitor can copy all the elements of your marketing mix – your products and packaging, your pricing and distribution strategy and your promotional approach, but the brand remains sacred. In recent history, there has been a dramatic shift in the understanding of how business value is created. In Stuart’s time, a business would be valued based upon its manufacturing assets, property and financial assets such as investments and accounts receivable. Today, the value of the intangibles, the brand and the goodwill, comprise part of a company’s balance sheet. I, like Stuart, believe that the majority of a business'

value is derived from their brand, if they have a strong brand with a compelling story behind it. This is supported by the wider gaps we are seeing between a company’s book value and its stock value. Interbrand measures the top brands in the world, estimating the contribution that branding makes to shareholder value. The McDonald’s brand is estimated to deliver 70% of shareholder value, with the rest being accounted for by the bricks and mortar of the business. Without the heritage or coverage of the big brands of the world, small businesses need to look for ways to build goodwill on a small scale but at a fast pace, especially for start-ups. One way to do this is to leverage off the goodwill of your suppliers who have created strong brands for themselves. Consider the last supplier decision you made; you would have considered the costs of their products to your business, but did you also take into account the value that could be added to your business by having them as a supplier? For a café, one element of their goodwill is the coffee brand they choose. At Di Bella Coffee we invest our resources in building a reputable brand that stands for quality of product and coffee education. This has a flow on effect for our wholesale customers as they benefit not only from our focus on developing expertise, but also the goodwill that the Di Bella Coffee brand has created through this approach.

T

his month I had the pleasure of meeting a real life hero and to be inspired by a motivated lady who has seen the opportunity to turn commercial food wastage into food for the hungry. Ronni Kahn, CEO and founder of Oz Harvest has grown her concept of food recycling into a charity that gives out hundreds of thousands of meals annually to the needy. I was lucky to be invited to a local dinner for REAP, which is the chapter group of OZ Harvest here in Port Macquarie. After a very motivational chat by Ronni, I instantly thought about how cafés and the café supply industry should get involved. We are the largest sector of the hospitality industry, so please put your thinking caps on and see what we all can do to contribute to this amazing charity. The team at Café Culture has been busy again travelling the globe attending coffee events in Seattle, Shanghai, Melbourne and Vancouver. The world definitely is becoming smaller, as far away places become more accessible. The travel time is crucial for us as a media business, in helping us understand world café trends and what we need to stay ahead of the game. I believe the Australian and New Zealand café market still have some of the most impressive experiences worldwide. Being innovative in the world market in coffee and café food service has created the massive growth in our café space. I also believe we have sold the concept of café lifestyle well to the consumer, where they believe they need to visit a café daily. Our latest Café Pulse survey is showing a CBD office worker visits a café 5 - 6 days a week across the nation. Another interesting figure is the average kilo of coffee usage in café has risen from 10 kg a week to a national average of 15 - 20 kg, which means consumers are spending

more on out of home coffee. I also believe our coffee service levels have risen as consumers demand more from the café owner as general coffee knowledge improves. Now it’s time for my rant. Why are baristas becoming too cool to give good customer service? I appreciate a well made coffee from a well trained barista, but I can’t tolerate arrogance from this new breed of front of house show ponies. It is only a small minority who are spoiling the good image. I suppose in some ways I should also shoulder the blame, as it is companies like ours that have been putting baristas on the pedestal for quite some time. I think it’s time now to educate this bunch into being a little bit more tolerant and understanding of the overall marketplace. One of the few grounding things I have done in my coffee career is go to a coffee growing area in a developing country and really see the hardship in coffee farming and processing. All the coffee we drink in our cafés should be appreciated for its story, and it should not always be about who has paid a high price for a particular origin. I suggest to any upcoming baristas to get on a plane and go see the real coffee industry outside of your social media playground, as not everything you read is true. In my travels I am getting feedback around issues with paying GST by café owners and how badly this is affecting small operators who are trying hard to run their books cleanly. Many new operators don’t realise most products purchased are GST free but when processed into a meal, GST is incurred, so there is no balance or claim back like other businesses. It’s not the first BAS period that is difficult – it’s the second, as with the first BAS of a new business there is often a refund because of startup and fit out purchases that incur GST. Smart operators will make sure when

they price a menu that they put in the GST component. Most new accounting programs will track GST daily, so as not to shock at BAS time. Another tip is to run a GST account and bank it weekly, so you are forward planning for BAS time. Look at all receipts, especially when products have been bought from the supermarket, as they will often have GST charged. Many café owners pay these small amounts straight from the till and miss these little claimable items. The Australian Taxation Department have been targeting cafés for a few years now and they will know the benchmarks of a café structure and will do random audits on businesses where the figures don’t stack up. The Café Culture team has been very busy preparing to launch a new café association called COBAA (Café Owners and Barista Association of Australia) which will assist café owners and managers in their business. I would urge all café owners to join up so we can unite the Australian café industry and ensure a strong influence in our economic direction. It’s amazing how a multimillion dollar industry has had no real association ties apart from a specialty coffee association, which mainly concentrates on barista competition and development. What COBAA is all about is looking into the full picture of running a café successfully and stopping failure because we are a disregarded industry that is over taxed and under educated. More info at www.cobaa. com.au Just a quick plug for a program we are supporting in this issue, The Australian Café of the Year Awards. This program has been very successfully run in New Zealand, and there are some great prizes to be won plus the kudos. I will be personally judging cafés later in the year; get involved, so I can come and check out your café.

ENTREPRENEURIAL INTELLIGENCE

THE SECRET TO START-UP BUSINESS SUCCESS In Australia, 30 per cent all new businesses fail before their first year is finished, leaving many budding entrepreneurs to pose the question: why do some succeed, while others struggle to realise their dream? The secret to business success is not as complicated as originally thought, says Phillip Di Bella in a new book entitled Entrepreneurial Intelligence, written by marketing and brand strategist Allan Bonsall. “Entrepreneurial Intelligence is the result of two years of investigation into the formula that makes successful entrepreneurs tick,” Mr Di Bella said. “It is a formula based on my personal business philosophies that saw me succeed with both Di Bella and My Crop to Cup, and it is surprisingly simple. “By developing the formula, Allan and I hope to have articulated those philosophies in a

$70 MILLION INVESTMENT

TO KICK-START NSW HAZELNUT INDUSTRY

SOY MILK FORMULA

FOR THE PROFESSIONAL BARISTA

P

rocal Dairies launched the much anticipated SILK soy milk for baristas at the recent Melbourne International Coffee Expo. The response was overwhelming from the baristas, roasters and café patrons. Procal identified a gap in the market for a high performance soy milk which provided a creamy, flavour balanced coffee. Market trends confirm the continued increase for demand of plant based beverages in cafés. Procal has taken up the challenge to bring to the market a soy milk which will work for the high calibre café coffees, as expected from today’s coffee consumers who know what they want from their coffee. Procal’s Silk soy, which has been especially formulated for the professional barista, is made in Belgium under the Silk brand, which is the leading specialty soy milk brand in the USA. Silk soy does not override subtle coffee flavours and does not split when heated, unlike a number of products currently on the market. Procal has always been the leading specialty barista’s choice and has been an innovator in the space, by continually adding new products to their range to service the café industry in response to demands and feedback received from within the industry. In addition to the new Silk soy, Procal has also recently launched the new full cream and light lactose free milk range to their offering. More information can be obtained from procal. com.au or by calling 1300 776 225.

The planting of more than one million hazelnut trees has started on a new $70 million investment near Narrandera, NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Katrina Hodgkinson, announced earlier this month. The trees are being planted on a new 2,000-hectare farm owned by Agri Australis Pty Ltd, which is an Australian subsidiary of global confectionary giant, the Ferrero Group. “This investment will not only directly create up to 50 permanent jobs and more than 50 seasonal jobs; it will indirectly provide a welcome boost to the Narrandera economy and will boost the NSW hazelnut industry,” Ms Hodgkinson said. Currently Australia only produces about 80 tonnes of hazelnuts annually and imports more than 2,000 tonnes. Once this farm is fully operational, it is expected it will generate some 5,000 tonnes of hazelnuts and has the potential, with the contribution of local growers, to enable the NSW industry to meet a production target of 10,000 tonnes in the medium term. Agri Australis aims to set up the Narrandera farm as a large demonstration site to show other

farmers and investors the potential of hazelnut cultivation. “The important news for farmers in NSW is that they have the opportunity to follow the lead of the Ferrero Group to consider hazelnuts as an option to help increase diversification and provide a new income stream,” said Ms Hodgkinson. The trees are expected to take about four years to grow, and the farm should reach full production capability by 2022.

SWISS WATER PROCESS TOUR AMAZING COFFEE WITHOUT CAFFEINE!

I

n conjunction with the annual SCAA 2014 Event in April this year, Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Company (SWDCC)

invited its customers to their operation plant in Vancouver, Canada. As Bennetts is the exclusive distributor of SWISS WATER® Process products to the Australian market, we were eager to take the opportunity to attend an “access all areas” tour of the plant to see first-hand how the process works and find out where the industry is heading. The research and development team at SWDCC have recently improved their decaffeination process in an effort to maintain as much of the original qualities of the green coffee bean. If you are a purchaser of SWISS WATER® Process green beans, you may have noticed these changes of late, both in the colour of the raw green beans and in the way they roast. Technically speaking, these improvements have come about from a more controlled and consistent process where key variables are being permanently and continuously monitored.

A more gentle process has resulted in less physiological changes to the structure of the beans and better acids retention, which in turn maintains the colour, flavour and roast profile of the beans in line with their original predecaffeinated state. The tour finished up with a comparative cupping session, highlighting the origin characteristics that remain in the cup post decaffeination. Seeing the decaffeination process first hand was exciting and informative, and Bennetts looks forward to being able to share our newly gained knowledge with Australian roasters and consumers.

Value at Origin U G A N D A

T

he Coffee Quality Institute (CQI) is best known in coffee consuming countries for its popular Q Grader program, the universal certification course for

coffee cuppers, but that’s only a small portion of the institute’s work. Upwards of 75% of what is done by this nonprofit organisation is quietly focused on origin value development: donor-funded projects specifically designed to improve the lives of people in coffee production nations by increasing the value of coffee trade. At any moment, CQI has work underway in Colombia, Ethiopia, Uganda, Yemen and other coffee lands, all staffed with a combination of outside consultants and volunteers from around the industry. For the past two years, I’ve been one of those consultants working for CQI, primarily in Uganda.

SPOTLIGHT: UGANDA Uganda shares a similar past to many of its neighbours: boundaries drawn by colonial interests, later gaining independence only to face its own trials from within. It’s been a long and hard road but today, Uganda is among the more stable and advanced nations in Africa, which has led to economic growth and relative prosperity. It’s a fertile country, rich with natural resources and populated predominantly by small-scale farmers, many of whom farm coffee. It is a cash crop of critical importance, with a long history of cultural significance to the country and its people. Uganda is one of, if not the oldest coffee origin on Earth and thought to be the genetic home of all Robusta coffee, which itself is a parent of Arabica. Long

before it was cultivated as a commercial crop, coffee grew wild throughout the area and was recognised for its unique properties, which became prized not as a beverage, but as a roasted and chewed snack. So important was coffee’s meaning in pre-colonial times, that it was used as a central symbol in ceremonies. Most famously, the Ganda tribe’s blood brotherhood ritual saw two men exchange and consume a single coffee bean dipped in the other’s freshly drawn blood to signify a family-like union. In total, the country today produces 3.8 million bags annually on land roughly the same size as Victoria, which is on the rise and expected to reach 4.5 million bags annually within the next two years. Not surprisingly, that makes coffee

IN NOVEMBER LAST YEAR CAFÉ CULTURE LAUNCHED AN EXCITING NEW INITIATIVE TO BRING SUPPLIER AND SERVICE PROVIDERS TOGETHER WITH CAFÉ OWNERS AND THEIR CHEFS TO DISCUSS THE DAY TO DAY CHALLENGES OF RUNNING THEIR CAFÉ KITCHENS.

IN TOTAL, THE COUNTRY TODAY PRODUCES 3.8 MILLION BAGS ANNUALLY ON LAND ROUGHLY THE SAME SIZE AS VICTORIA

Uganda’s number one export, with revenues today accounting for approximately 20% of all export trade – those revenues supporting more than 1.5 million farming families. Working on such a large scale, even small incremental improvements make a large difference. An independent report from the International Trade Centre confirmed in 2012 that the average value of coffee exported from Uganda has increased from 2006-2010 by as much as 2½ times that of similarly positioned origins during the same period, which is directly attributed to quality improvement initiatives. Since 2003, CQI has organised technical training and quality initiatives in partnership with the Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA), in one way or another reaching all corners of the country and sectors of the coffee supply chain: from agriculture, post-harvest processing and roasting through quality assessment and the establishment

24-25.indd 25

of new quality standards. 80% of coffee production from the country is Robusta, so a substantial percentage of development effort has been dedicated to the advancement of that species, but the remaining balance of Arabica production is still second only to Ethiopia’s quantity of production in all of Africa and certainly not to be overlooked. Recently, UCDA announced the landmark creation of a new Robusta research and education center, called the Center of Robusta Excellence, or simply “C.O.R.E.” The initiative will be the first-ever such effort dedicated solely to improvement of Robusta, presently the lowest-valued of all commercial coffee. CORE promises to bring together members of the regional African and international coffee community with the support of CQI to carry out applied research and education that make Robusta better and improve the lives of those who need it most.

The population of Uganda is currently the 9th fastest growing in the world; with so many new mouths to feed, far more work will be needed to make coffee farming a viable career for future generations. Initiatives like those underway by CQI in Uganda are making coffee farming an increasingly sustainable option, while preserving the heritage of a culture.

CUP OF 2014

THE DIARY OF A Q CU PPER

l Salvador's national crop was decimated this year. Growers only produced 25% of the 20012/13 crop – the cause of this being the ongoing coffee rust or roya issue that is widespread in the northern parts of Central America. The severe lack of rain also played a vital role in the coffee shortfall; however, with coffee prices at a high and holding there, farmers will still do OK this year – especially well if their coffees pass and are sold during the annual Cup of Excellence (COE) awards. In March this year, Cup of Excellence El Salvador kicked off its eleventh edition. Led by Chief Judge Sherri M. Johns, who is a representative of the owner of the event, Alliance for Coffee Excellence (ACE), 11 national Q-graders and cup tasters evaluated

28-29.indd 28

139 participants from different coffee growing regions around the country. The average minimum score required to remain competitive is 85, with a maximum of 100. The coffees that scored above 85 points were then passed on to an international jury. The international judging took place between 27th April and 2nd May. Qualified cuppers were from a mix of countries, including Japan, Korea and the USA. Three Australians also attended, Dave Makin from Axil Coffee in Melbourne, ex pat Aussie and UK WBC champ, John Gordon from Square Mile in London and myself. The samples passing the qualifying stages will be auctioned online on June 9. The six coffee regions of the country were represented and with 139 participants, the prevailing regions were Apaneca-Llamatepec

with 64% of the total, followed by TecapaChinameca 12.2%, Balm-Quezaltepec with 11.5%, Alotepeque-Metapán Cacahuatique 9.4% and the rest of the country at 2.9% made up the total. With varietals, the traditional Bourbon absorbs 59.7% of the competition, then the mixtures Bourbon-bales to 12.9%, El Salvadoran exotic variety Pacamara 8.6%, Bourbon and Bourbon-Pacamara-Caturra with 2.9%; the other participants are diverse mixtures related to the main varieties. Overall, the vast majority of contestant farms are located at a height above 1,200 metres above sea level and account for 85.6% of the competition. The remaining coffees are of average height, between 900 and 1,200 metres.

WE CUPPED THREE TABLES, WHICH FEATURED A MIX OF COFFEES. BEAUTIFULLY JUICY PACAMARAS AND BIG BOLD BOURBONS WERE A HIGHLIGHT.

DAY 1 - CALIBRATION The calibration of the cuppers is a very critical component of the competition. With a worldly mix of judges and taste ranges, the cuppers needed to evaluate particular El Salvadorian varietals and process techniques. A few tables were scored and then discussed in detail. This is very important in order to create a level playing field. DAY 2 - ROUND 1 In the first round all coffee passed by the national jury are cupped. We cupped three tables, which featured a mix of coffees. Beautifully juicy Pacamaras and big bold Bourbons were a highlight. We had some spare time, so we visited the Great la Gloria farm and micro mill, which is only an hour away from the capital San Salvador. La Gloria finished 7th in the 2013 competition and was brought into Australia by the Melbourne Coffee Merchants crew. The farm is situated on the volcano that imposingly overlooks the Capital. DAY 3 - ROUND 1 We had two tables left to cup in the first round. Some natural and honey processed coffees emerged and were a definite talking point. We visited the local and very large mill, Cooperativa Cuzcachapa De RL. All the COE finalists are stored and milled there. A security guard actually sleeps with the coffee during the night!

28-29.indd 29

DAY 4 - ROUND 2 All of the coffees that we scored over 85 had to be re-cupped. Is was a big day, with five tables and 36 coffees qualifying. The different varietals and processing techniques were still a talking point, with some coffees really polarising the jury. DAY 5 - TOP 10 Following normal COE protocol, the coffees ranked in 1 to 10 are once again cupped to ensure final positioning. Some amazing coffees were on the table, and I would love to bring them all back to Australia. In the afternoon we had a chance to meet the farmers of the coffees entered and also local exporters. It was an ideal chance to speak openly about the new processing techniques being used by the growers. There has been a massive rise in Pacamara planting, as the farmer can receive about $1 more per kilogram than traditional varietals like Bourbon. Pacamara seems to provide better results when naturally processed or semi washed. Later that night was the award ceremony. And the winner was ‌ Raul Rivera from Finca Santa Rosa. This was a great coffee: a semi washed Pacamara and one of the polarisers! The previous year he finished 25th, so this year he varied his processing techniques. His hard work has paid off. The great Ernesto Menedez had two coffees qualify, as did Finca El Majahaul, a coffee that we imported last year.

DAY 6 The winner Raul Rivera opened up his farm to us. It was a bit of an adventure getting into the place, with 4 wheel drives and a couple of flat tyres along the way. A full night's rain didn't help the cause either! Raul and his family have 15,000 trees, mainly of the Pacamara varietal. The farm is situated right on the border with Honduras on the beautiful Mange Ranges called Chalatenango. La Palma is a beautiful well known town that is nearby. The Cup of Excellence events exist not only to showcase the best coffees of a particular country, but also to reward the farmer for the hard work and stringent husbandry practised. In a bad year for the growers, there is no better time to support this event and buy some lots. I would sincerely like to mention the efforts of Paola from Consejo, the coffee board of El Salvador, and also Anna and Sherri from the Cup of Excellence, who put in long hours to make this event happen. It was a pleasure to attend this event. At BeanGreen we are showcasing these coffees and cupping weekly. If you would like to attend a cupping at out Brisbane warehouse or are interested in joining a buying group, please contact info@ beangreen.com.au. After this event I travelled south through Central America to meet some growers and to secure some more new crop coffees. Check out our new blog soon about our travels in Costa Rica ...

he new Maxi Crew will double the practicality the Kangoo offers by being able to move staff around during the working week in combination with stock, or by simply folding the rear row of seats forward into the floor, allows the usual complement of 4.0 m³ of cargo to be carried in the back. All Kangoos come with the convenience of a sliding door on each side, so wherever you pullup, it will be easy to unload. Renault has structured the new Kangoo range to appeal to small business owners as much as possible. “A small van is indispensable in business, especially within the coffee industry,” says Lyndon Healey, Model Line Manager for Renault LCV. “We know these customers are very focused on costs, too, so we are doing our bit to help them reduce the total-cost-of-ownership, and thus improve their profitability. The Kangoo 1.6-litre petrol manual is one of the most affordable manual transmission vans on the market, when you consider all the specifications fitted as standard. The upgraded automatic transmission makes the 2-pedal city-friendly model the cheapest small auto van in Australia, as well. The Renault Kangoo is Europe’s biggest selling light commercial vehicle, and Renault has been the biggest selling LCV brand in Europe for 16 years in a row, so it is no surprise that Australian customers have taken to the comfortable, fun-todrive compact van in increasingly large numbers. The Kangoo shares its mechanical make-up with one of Renault’s people movers, so it is very car-like to drive, being quiet, smooth and easy to park, too. The compact dimensions make it easy to manoeuvre and load, and the low 1.8 m roof

32-33.indd 32

SHORT-WHEELBASE KANGOO height means easy access to underground car parks, even with a roof rack fitted. The Kangoo comes with all of the technology, practical equipment and safety features that are essential for a comfortable, safe and productive day behind the wheel. Standard safety equipment includes Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with ASR (Traction Control), which detects even momentary loss of control and instantly applies individual brakes to the required wheel. All models also feature hands-free Bluetooth® connectivity to keep business owners in touch with their clients and suppliers while they are mobile. Best of all, Renault has paid a lot of attention to reducing the total-cost-of-ownership, so the Kangoo benefits from Capped Price Servicing for the first 3 years or 45,000 km, giving complete peace-of-mind. All Renault Kangoos purchased before 30 June 2014 also benefit from a bonus 2 years of additional factory warranty, giving a total of 5 years or 200,000 km of cover, and there is 24/7 Roadside Assistance as well. If that is not enough, the Kangoo is a 100% deductible investment for your business – though check with your financial advisor to be sure this applies to you. The Kangoo continues to offer a great combination of practicality, comfort, and safety, and with its new look and even sharper starting price, the new Maxi Crew model will extend Kangoo’s reach into the compact van market. It provides a perfect solution for customers who combine work with an active outdoor lifestyle. They will find much appeal in the Kangoo’s practicality, and its low price.

The range kicks off with the feisty 79 kW 1.6-litre petrol-powered short-wheelbase Kangoo, priced from $19,990, complete with 5-speed manual transmission and space for 3.0 m³ of stock or gear in the rear.

SHORT-WHEELBASE KANGOO 4-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION There is also a self-shifting 4-speed automatic transmission version of this model for $22,990. The short-wheelbase models come with dual barn doors at the rear, or the option of a onepiece lift-up tailgate.

LONG-WHEELBASE KANGOO MAXI AND MAXI CREW If you need more space in the back, the long-wheelbase Kangoo Maxi comes with a responsive 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine, with 81 kW and 240 Nm of torque. This engine is incredibly frugal, using only 4.7-litres of diesel per 100 km, helping customers to reduce their weekly running costs. The Maxi is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, and is priced from $24,990.

THE MAXI CREW The Maxi Crew with its 5-seat versatility, and many additional convenience features, is priced from $27,990.

WORKING IN HOSPITALITY TO PAY THEIR WAY THROUGH UNIVERSITY THEY NEVER IMAGINED FINDING REAL PASSION IN A JOB THEY INITIALLY REGARDED AS A MEANS TO A TOTALLY DIFFERENT END.

I

n a short time Sengmany Sanoubane has come a long way, and so far this year he has taken home the winner’s trophy at both the ACT Latte Art Championships and the Pura/Dairy Farmers Latte Art Competition at Café Biz 2014. The Pura/Dairy Farmers Latte Art Competition has been running for more than 10 years now, with its aim being to encourage newcomers to the competition arena, to develop skills and to build a strong barista community. Café Culture caught up with Sengmany Sanoubane for a quick chat about his life in coffee so far. HI SENGMANY. HOW DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN COFFEE AND BECOMING A BARISTA? I took an indirect path to becoming a barista. I worked as a dishwasher in an Asian restaurant in Canberra for my first job in hospitality while studying in Year 12. Several months later, staff became sick quite regularly, and I was asked to become a kitchen hand and sometimes a waiter. The restaurant had a small coffee machine and no one, including me, had any idea how to use it properly. I inevitably had to make coffees in busy hours, and it was a terrible experience. Then I became interested in how to use the machine and began doing some research on milk texturing and coffee extraction. Latte art was probably the first impression that motivated me to learn more about other aspects of coffee. I then started working at several cafés to practice and refine my barista skills. WHERE DO YOU WORK NOW AND WHAT ARE THE GREAT THINGS ABOUT YOUR

34-35.indd 34

EMPLOYMENT? I am currently working part-time at Espresso Room in Canberra as well as studying full-time at the ANU. Espresso Room was founded by Michael Rose in 2012 with the vision of making good quality coffee easily accessible to everyone. What captivates me about Espresso Room is that it is owned and operated by the baristas, which assures a high level of passion and quality that goes into the making of every cup of coffee. ONA Coffee provides our coffee beans and training for all of our baristas. Their signature trademark is “Project Origin”, a green bean sourcing program that has emphasis on quality, sustainability and fairness. HAVE YOU ENTERED COFFEE COMPETITIONS PREVIOUSLY? HOW MUCH PREPARATION FOR COMPS HAVE YOU DONE? DO YOU INTEND TO CONTINUE COMPETING? Prior to competing in the Café Biz competition, I competed in the ACT Latte Art Championship 2014, which was my first competition, and I won it! As I am still very inexperienced, I needed to get as much preparation as possible before representing the ACT in the National Latte Art Championship, so I decided to enter the Café Biz competition. With a busy uni workload, I didn’t have much time to practice. It took me a few days to make a decision on the coffee blend, signature drink and patterns for the competition. I then had limited time to practice my performance and presentation, so it was good experience under pressure for me. DO YOU HAVE A MENTOR OR ANY IDOLS

IN COFFEE? ONA Coffee in Canberra changed my perception of coffee. The Master Class program that is run weekly by ONA Coffee helps in nurturing my barista skills and my knowledge about coffee. Their invaluable advice and support has contributed greatly to my success in competitions. WHAT IS LIFE ABOUT FOR YOU OUTSIDE OF COFFEE ... ANY OTHER PASSIONS, HOBBIES OR PASTIMES? My family and I immigrated to Australia nine years ago with the hope of a better life. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science majoring in Psychology and Statistics at the ANU. I enjoy playing soccer and table tennis. I’m passionate about people. Making people happy makes me happy, and it gives me the motivation to learn how to make great tasting and beautifully presented coffee. SO WHAT’S NEXT FOR SENGMANY SANOUBANE? I intend to focus on finishing my degree for the next 12 months while keeping in touch with coffee and attending the weekly Master Class program and cupping sessions. After my graduation, I intend to take the head barista position and a management role in a new Espresso Room café. So there you go. It seems Sengmany has been bitten by the coffee bug? Will he stay in the industry? History tells us that he will, so we hope to see more of him on the competition stage and behind his machine. Either way Sengmany will be successful, so we wish him the best of luck in the near and distant future. Congratulations.

CALLING FOR ENTRIES THE BATTLE LINES HAVE BEEN DRAWN FOR THE FIRST EVER AUSTRALIAN CAFÉ OF THE YEAR COMPETITION, CALLING FOR THE COUNTRY’S BEST BEAN GRINDERS AND EGG POACHERS TO THROW IN A SPOONFUL OF CREATIVITY, A GRANDE CUP OF PASSION AND A GOOD SPLASH OF COMPETITIVE SPIRIT.

C

urrently in its third year in New Zealand, the Café of the Year concept is crossing the ditch to offer Aussie cafés the chance to prove we’re home to the best café culture in the world. It’s set to be a fiercely fought foodie fight, with state vs state, city vs city and hipster vs chic. Andrew Nalder, Café of the Year spokesperson, said, “The plan for Australian Café of the Year is not for it to be a one-hit wonder. In our maiden year, we want to see what our Aussie neighbours have to offer in this competition of true culinary heart and passion.” The team behind Australian Café of the Year are calling for big, medium and artisanal players to throw their hat in the ring and compete for the glory of being crowned number one in the country.

36-37.indd 36

ENTRY IS FREE AND EASY Cafés simply need to create a dish using an ingredient each from the Heinz and Don ranges – options include pulled pork, bacon, chipolatas, chorizo, baked beans and a new condiments range. The national winner will take home a Renault Clio RS200 Sport – and more importantly, some serious bragging rights. Seven regional winners will also be chosen to receive $1,000 cash and $1,000 worth of Heinz product. Voters also have the chance to win a share of an $11,000 prize pool, with one main prize of $5,000 and six prizes of $1,000 to be won simply for having their say (one winner will be selected from each of the seven competition regions). The Café of the Year competition launched in New Zealand in 2012,

attracting hundreds of votes and establishing itself as a title to be fought for. Last year, close to 700 cafés entered in hopes of winning the much-sought-after award, and over 46,000 consumer votes were cast. After an intense campaign, the title of New Zealand Café of the Year was awarded to Mairangi Bay café Paper Moon. The café shot to fame for its Paper Moon Mairangi Bay Bean and Bacon Stack, with café goers queuing throughout the competition to get their taste of the acclaimed competition dish. Two years later, it’s still on the menu and still a hot favourite. Following the hype created around their win, the owners of Paper Moon opened a second establishment, Black Cottage – which placed a close second in the 2013 competition.

... AT THE END OF 2013 THERE WERE TWO MILLION AUSTRALIANS USING INSTAGRAM, WITH 24 MILLION SEARCHABLE POSTS FOR THE #FOODPORN HASHTAG, MAKING FOOD IMAGES ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR POSTS SHARED ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNEL.

2013 winners Jester House won the top spot with their Spiced Hot Pot creation, delivering a unique dining experience for their customers. Co-owner of Jester House, Steve Richards said, “When we travel, we go to the top rated places to benchmark ourselves against, so I think the award gives customers something to pin their decision on.” In Australia, our continued obsession with sharing food photos on Instagram – #foodporn #instagood #instafood #foodie #foodgasm – means the number of cafés entered and consumers engaging will be much larger than what we’ve seen so far across the Tasman. Tech analyst Telsyte found that at the end of 2013 there were two million Australians using Instagram, with 24 million searchable

posts for the #foodporn hashtag, making food images one of the most popular posts shared on the social media channel. Café of the Year is not just for owners and customers; it also allows chefs and cooks to get creative with their menus and dishes. There is no limit to the amount of dishes that can be created and how the mandatory ingredients can be used. One past entry included the beans from Heinz Baked Beanz being broken down and transformed into gnocchi pasta. The dishes created make up a percentage of the voting criteria, with a panel of expert judges also critiquing the customer service and overall atmosphere of the finalists. Past entrants have found that their businesses improved simply through their decision to participate in the competition

Proudly supported by 36-37.indd 37

– with staff becoming more attentive and focused, and developing positive habits, which long outlived the conclusion of the competition. As of June 2nd, Australian cafés will have the chance to be in the running and ramp up their promotional campaigns, with each entrant receiving a full Australian Café of the Year arsenal (posters, wall stickers, table cards, etc.) ready for battle. The competition will be the ultimate test of loyalty and pride for their regulars, as well as the perfect way to attract new clientele and reignite the competitive spirit between their peers. If you think your café has the ingredients to be named Australian Café of the Year, visit www.cafeoftheyear.com.au to register. Seven regions. Millions of café lovers. One chance to be number one.

OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS WE HAVE EXPERIENCED A PUSH IN THE INDUSTRY TOWARDS ARTISAN AND CRAFT PRODUCTS IN FOOD AND BEVERAGE PRODUCTION AND SOURCING. WE ARE ALSO SEEING A PUSH TOWARDS TRACEABILITY FROM FARM GATE TO CAFÉ.

O

ne of the key factors of this process is to first determine the country of origin of that product. The coffee industry has been all over this with a good understanding about the country of the sourced coffee bean, right down to the farm or estate where it has been grown. The reasoning behind this was originally about understanding the different flavour characteristics of those countries; for example, a Papua New Guinea bean has more fruit flavours then, say, a Brazilian bean, and a Kenyan bean has dark chocolate characteristics. This practice of sourcing has also led to further understanding and engagement with the farmer and his beans. If a coffee roaster knows where the bean comes from, they can also look further at the buying arrangements with the farmer and set up exclusive sales agreements, cutting out middle men and also assisting in sustaining the growth of the farmer by setting purchase agreements around good fair trading practices. The upshot from this today is if a punter goes into a café, they expect to see a single

40-41.indd 40

origin coffee on the beverage menu. The same is going to happen to the typical café hot chocolate; people want to know more about the flavour, not just the branding. We asked our good friend Peter Mengler from Cravve Artisan Chocolates to help us in explaining a little about the chocolate process and what exciting new things are happening in his industry. What we need to know about single origin chocolate! The story of origin chocolate starts with the bean; cocoa or cacao (Spanish term) originates from two varietals: Criollo from the upper Amazon near Peru and Ecuador; and Forastero from the lower Amazon (Brazil). A third variety evolved from the crossbreeding of Criollo and Forastero on the island of Trinidad, hence the name Trinitron. Both Criollo and Trinitron are flavour beans and Forastero is a bulk bean – in coffee terms, Arabica and Robusta. Though two sub variates of Forastero, Amelonado and Amazon can be regarded as flavour beans. From this base, the beans spread though Mesoamerica over the centuries, before being

discovered by Columbus in Veracruz, Mexico ... and well, the rest is history. The flavour profiles differ greatly. Criollo has a lower base chocolate flavour but a greater spectrum of floral, fruit and nut flavours; whereas Forastero has a big, rich chocolate base flavour, hence the reason it accounts for over 90% of world production. As with coffee origins, chocolate is all about the influence of regional terrior on bean flavour profile. Let’s take a snapshot from the main cocoa growing regions of the world. FLAVOUR PROFILES CRIOLLO: dominated by lower cocoa base flavour per se, but fruit and flowers galore (often soft dried bouquets – wild essences of banana, papaya, mango + more tropical, jungle fruits and orchids) undercut by earthen qualities (tobacco, mushroom, and wood) Bolivia (varietal Amazonia): nuts ‘n honey, sparkling dark "brown fruit" (raisins, prunes, dates); good acidity and mildly condensed tannins create a somewhat austere package. VENEZUELA: too variable to list, but you can expect fruits and nuts galore against a supreme chocolate backdrop.

14/6/14 10:28:47 AM

MEXICO: earthen (nuts, especially almonds), spices and herbs (licorice, clove, pepper), fruit and flowers (sometimes even Colombia-like marshmallow), light body, requires careful fermentation, processing and sugaring to mollify inherent acidity and bitterness. TRINIDAD (THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF TRINITARO): highly variable across the spectrum marked by three general types: a) wood (cedar, spruce, immortelle aka "Madre de cacáo") and spices (cinnamon, clove), b) grass and butter (including tobacco leaf / leather tannins, sometimes coconut); c) tropical citrus fruits (often reds like sour cherry). JAVA: low cocoa essence gives way to natural, faint caramel-cream underneath smoked-leather tones and nut-skins, complemented by subtle citrus and spice – a combination that cuts incredibly well with milk chocolate (though in some regions highly acidic). IVORY COAST, AFRICA: dominant earthen flavours, classic cocoa, coconut, tobacco-spice. Mostly bulk-grade Forastero, reliable, simple, and bold – used mainly as a foundation for blends favoured by the big lolly makers. PROCESSING To realise these flavours, all of the above beans first need to go through a 3-7 day ferment, where 30% of the final flavour develops. The beans can then be washed or left un-washed and sun dried, with a final stage of grading and bagging. The next stage is where the chocolate maker comes in, starting with roasting at temperatures between 100°C - 160°C and roast time between 15-70 minutes. These temperatures are usually lower and longer than coffee, as a reflection of

the larger mass size of the bean. With cocoa beans there is only first crack, and no second crack. Again as a general guide, another 30% of flavour is developed – with lower roasts more acidic and fruity and higher roasts more nutty and sweeter. Once cooled and winnowed to remove the husk, it's on to the final stages of grinding, refining and conche. The grind reduces the nibs to a thick, aromatic paste, whereby the aromatic bitterness can be removed with time and temperature. For some beans, a process of dry conching is used for the bulk of the bitterness or other un-desirable flavour components – where the paste undergoes vigorous agitation under heat at varied lengths of time, determined by the organoleptic profile the chocolate maker desires. The smooth, buttery texture of chocolate is produced in the refining stage, whereby the crystal size of cocoa is reduced in the case of fine chocolate to 15 - 20 micron. The human palate detects grittiness to about 50 micron. Old style granite stone melangers are the favourite machines for small bean to bar chocolate makers, with large lolly makers opting for continuous machine processes like ball mills. Both machines plus numerous others have their pros and cons. The best chocolate makers maintain an open mind to all machines with the bean dictating which process works best in the flavour and textural development, be it at considerable capital cost. Now, on to the final stage for the chocolate maker, I should quickly explain the difference between chocolate maker and chocolatier. The

THE BEST CHOCOLATE MAKERS MAINTAIN AN OPEN MIND TO ALL MACHINES WITH THE BEAN DICTATING WHICH PROCESS WORKS BEST IN THE FLAVOUR AND TEXTURAL DEVELOPMENT, BE IT AT CONSIDERABLE CAPITAL COST.

chocolate maker takes beans and processes them into chocolate. The chocolatier takes the chocolate, melts it down, tempers and creates all sorts of wondrous confectionery ... not unlike the relationship between roaster and barista. Now conching: the small crystals developed in refining are now coated in cocoa butter under agitation. The application of agitation, heat and time in this stage also determines the final flavours. The conching process continues for anywhere between a few hours and 3 - 4 days. It’s here that the final bitterness of the cocoa bean is removed to reveal the glorious flavours discussed earlier in this article, for us to savour. Single origin chocolate is not new; it’s been around since chocolate discovery, but what is new is people’s interest in discovering the real joys of the chocolate flavour journey. So if you are a café that wants to stay ahead of the pack, it’s time to do some research on your hot chocolate menu and get some original flavour going this winter.

GREEN BEAN BUYING SHOW

Saturday 11 October This initiative is designed to create a link between the green bean buyers and roasters. In many cases it is quite difficult to meet face to face due to the geographical challenges in Australia and roasters are only getting to choose from the coffees that are sent to them as samples. Saturday 11th October will include a cupping session / buying show whereby roasters can cup a broad spectrum of origins and make purchasing decisions.

press

Based on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Brent Deller is the founder of www.Baristatools.Net, a barista equipment supplier. He has a rich history in the specialty coffee industry and franchising, with a focus on training and development and product testing and implementation.

THE PRESS

I

f you are a fan of the traditional French Press or looking to add a great point of difference to your brew bar, the Espro Press is for you. The team at Espro have re-engineered the French Press to bring it into this century, with a number of great features that ultimately improve the finished product and some wow factor. The first thing to change was the filtration system. Rather than one traditional flat, disc shaped filter, the Espro Press uses a cone shaped double wall filter that is 9 - 12 times finer than its predecessor ... meaning less, if any, grind in the cup, but with all the flavour of the blend you’re using – not to mention, a clean, crisp mouth feel.

Now, we all know glass loses heat quicker than steel, so why not make the body of the Espro Press with stainless steel? That was the next thing they did, but not just one stainless steel wall, but two vacuum insulated stainless steel walls. This keeps the coffee hotter for longer – perfect for restaurant service or hotel banquet departments. A great financial and safety benefit of the dual stainless steel wall is that there is no glass to break and knowing our industry, anything glass will eventually break. One Espro Press just keeps on pressing. The Espro Press comes in 3 sizes: 8 oz, 16 oz and 32 oz. The 16 oz and 32 oz units have etched fill lines on the inside walls, helping you to measure your brew and assist with recipe changes if you’re feeling adventurous. Functionally, the Espro Press ticks all the boxes over the traditional French Press, but its aesthetics help get it over the line. Its mirror polished stainless steel finish and sleek, stylish design pushes the boundaries. With so much style, don’t put it away! Leave it out for everyone to see, and in no time at all everyone will want one.

THE PROCESS W H AT Y O U W I L L N E E D

EQUIPMENT • Espro Press – size of your choice • Digital micro scales with .1 g accuracy • Desert spoon • Kettle

INGREDIENTS • Coarsely ground coffee suited to plunger • Purified water

press Step 1. Pre heat the Espro Press with boiling water and let it sit for 2 minutes. This will improve the brew performance but if you are in a hurry, this step can be skipped.

Step 5. Once filled, use a dessert spoon to gently stir the coffee. This will help ensure all the ground coffee is in contact with the water and will promote the full flavour of the coffee you are using.

Step 2. Using fresh coffee, grind your coffee to a coarser grind size than espresso grind. Now weigh your coffee using the brew table below, depending upon the size of the Espro Press you are using. I find when preparing one cup in a small Espro Press, 18 g of coffee brewed with 300 ml of hot water is just right. Once you’re comfortable, play around with grams used for different blends to find what works best for you.

Step 6. Cover the brewing coffee by placing the lid of the Espro Press over the coffee, but without pressing. Ensure the lid sits down below the top of the press as pictured and the filter assembly is sitting just in the top of the coffee. This will help retain the heat whilst your coffee brews and help make sure all of the coffee grind remains wet. Wait 4 minutes; this is your brewing time or time for your coffee to extract. Step 7. Press slowly until the button reaches the lid of the Espro Press. If you find it hard to press, slowly pull the button back up and then down again to clear the filter. Avoid using your body weight and pressing too quickly. This process should take no less than 15 seconds.

Step 3. Discard the water used to pre heat the press and add your ground coffee. Be sure to wipe any excess grind from the top lip of the press, as only this area is missed by the filters, and this grind could end up in your cup.

Step 4. Boil fresh purified water to 93 - 96 degrees Celsius if you are using a temperature controlled kettle, as this is the ultimate brew temperature range. If you are using a kettle without a temperature control, let the water sit for 1 to 2 minutes after boiling to drop in temperature. Fill your Espro Press to the desired fill line. Ensure to pour the hot water over the ground coffee slowly and in a circular motion – similar to if you were preparing a V60.

46-47.indd 47

Step 8. Enjoy your coffee! With the stainless steel vacuum double wall, your coffee will stay hot for between one to two hours but if served immediately, be careful not to burn yourself or others; it will still be very hot. Brew Table Espro Press Size

his Dynamic 33 year old started working full time at the age of 16, as a receptionist in a recruitment agency. From their she fell into the field of accounting, starting out in Accounts Receivable and throughout her career she has worked in nearly every position that makes up an accounts department. In 2001 Karen moved to a new job with an up and coming café franchise group called Gloria Jean’s Coffees; when she started with them they had only 50 stores in Australia. She took on a role in the procurement section handling the local and international ordering requirements to sustain the 50 stores. After 18 months she moved up into the accounts section, handling the accounts for the corporate stores and also accounts receivable. At this time she also started working part-time in one of the stores as a barista/shift manager on the weekends. Karen left Gloria Jean’s to have her first child. After Gloria Jean’s, she worked for XYZ Networks (division of Foxtel) staying there for six years in various finance roles; by this time her second child was just under a year old. Because of her changing home life and parenting commitments, she took on a part-time senior bookkeeper’s job at Eximo SpeedLOCK and some short months after she was hired, she was taking on more and more responsibility due to other employees leaving. Her title changed to Accounts Manager and she was put in charge of Eximo’s largest customer account, as well as running the finance side of the business. Several more

months passed, when Roger and Lucille, the owners of Eximo, decided the time had come for them to return to their home on the Sunshine Coast. At this time she became the acting supervisor of all other employees within the company, as well as ensuring the day to day running of the company. In July 2013, she received the promotion/title of General Manager – it has been a whirlwind ride. Through networking at an industrial trade show in Sydney, Karen was introduced to the Café Culture team, where she quickly recognised a need in the coffee roasting industry. She knew that Eximo would be a welcoming safety solution for the industry, helping to prevent major fires with the patented Speedlock system in exhaust flueing. She became passionate about providing product to the coffee roasting industry, recognising this as one of the only growth industries left in Australia and that the Eximo product was a perfect fit for their requirements. Karen and colleague Kristy McCormack signed up to the Golden Bean Awards for 2013, which proved to be a wonderful experience, giving her new industry contacts for longevity in this exciting new business arena. We chose Karen to be this edition’s Café Person because of her amazing networking abilities and being able to complete the full sale cycle with new customers. Karen is making significant safety changes for coffee roasters, saving the industry millions of dollars to lost time and injury.

good way to measure the success of a trade show is by the number of visitors through the door and also with feedback from the vendors and the quality of these visitors at the show. I’m sure these two criteria were fulfilled, with good numbers and positive feedback. Having attended this event over the past four years in Sydney and Melbourne and also being associated with the Café Biz team for many years, I have been waiting for this great event to hit our state. Our market has been ready and waiting. Over the past eight years that I have been working in specialty coffee, I have witnessed the café, and in particular the specialty coffee scene, in Queensland and Australia go ahead in leaps and bounds. This passion within the industry has educated our consumers, and their expectations for quality are now higher than ever. Queensland can boast world-class baristas, roasters, importers and manufacturers who continue to drive our industry, and Café Biz 2014 allowed our market to grab this opportunity to shine.

T

he event also allowed the Qld Coffee Community to hold the 2014 AASCA Queensland Coffee Championships. Being a barista champion takes time, money, knowledge, dedication and a full understanding of all aspects of specialty coffee from seed to cup. Having successfully won an Australian Barista Championship and three times Queensland Barista Championships, I know what’s required and the benchmarks needed. The competition is a barista’s opportunity to spread their craft to the wider community and the public. Having this year’s event at Café Biz allowed the industry to showcase their baristas and allowed them to be heard. Café Biz was a fantastic vehicle for exposing our state’s talent. For all the visitors over the two days, both local and interstate, they were welcomed to the tight community of Queensland. Café Biz Brisbane allowed suppliers to really connect with its market and also built on the already existing community. Having the event in Queensland also allowed those who haven’t been able to travel to past Café Biz events to catch up and connect with suppliers and friends within the industry. It has always been an added expense for Queensland businesses to travel interstate every year so with Café Biz 2014 on our doorstep, I’m sure there was plenty of business conducted. ven for me from a personal and business level, Café Biz provided me the opportunity to deliver my thoughts on our industry. It allowed me to speak about how the industry has changed in Queensland and also where we are headed in the future. Since I started my brand back in 2010, there have been many who have not even tasted my coffee, and Café Biz 2014 gave my friends and colleagues that chance to sample my products, which was fantastic. The exhibitor list was world class, and we are looking forward to Café Biz 2015, which is already shaping up to being another cracking event. Let’s hope to see you all there.

Café INDUSTRY REPORT

In October 2010, Café Pulse Research launched the industry first initiative to better understand independent café owners and managers and to evaluate the service you receive from key café suppliers. The response over the last four years has been overwhelming, with combined feedback from cafés across the country highlighting their needs and expectations from their key suppliers. The survey response analysis has brought to the forefront some very valuable industry insights, and its supporting numbers give all of us a better understanding of the Australian café industry. These charts have grown nicely over time and now allow all café owners and managers to benchmark their café business vs. the national and state averages.

Thank you to the café owners and roasters for having their say over the past four years of this important café search.

We Listened, and now collectively your voice will be heard throughout the café industry.

Suppliers, foodservice wholesalers and roasters can now best understand their café market opportunities to satisfy their direct customers and their managers.

The “What Shapes our Australian Coffee Industry” comprehensive report is the benchmark that all companies need to review and adopt for change.

The annual Café Pulse survey initiative is aimed at gaining more focused service standards from the major café suppliers and the various foodservice distributors.

56-57.indd 56

I have now presented this report to industry leaders in Australia and internationally; the resounding feedback has always been positive. Finally we have an industry report that is credible, relevant, well researched and that meets our industry needs. Well done to the team at Café Pulse; I look forward to the next edition in March 2015. Lance Brown National Account Manager - Commercial Coffee Lion Dairy & Drinks

The “What Shapes Our Australian Café Industry Report” has a breadth and depth of information that I have not seen before in a coffee or café industry report. More importantly, it is presented in a way that is so easy to understand and re-communicate, making it a powerful selling tool. We have used the information to make recommendations for change with our customers and to justify investment proposals within our business. We are grateful to the Café Culture team for providing such a quality source of industry specific coffee and café information that we can use to our benefit. Eugene Visione National Sales & Marketing Manager Mocopan Coffee

I have been involved with the foodservice industry for over 16 years. This report from the team at Café Pulse has provided me with the most comprehensive market information in that time. It not only helps us at Clorox have a better understanding of the café market and its importance in the foodservice sector, but we can also pass this valuable information on to our distributors to help them grow, which is to the mutual benefit to both organisations. Information in this report will be invaluable in building our Away From Home strategy piece and will help the business make strategic decisions in our sales and marketing direction moving forward. Thank you to David and the team at Café Pulse; this report has confirmed we are investing our advertising funds wisely into the café industry, which will help us drive our market leading brands (GLAD and Chux) into the future.

everages are the fastest growing category of specialty foods; however, today simplicity rules. Consumers not only want foods and beverages prepared with fewer ingredients, but they also want comfort and familiarity. Most often our instincts regarding comfort foods turn out to be the best ones: hot soup on cold winter days, icy cold paddle pops during the summer time and of course, a creamy hot chocolate on the couch during the colder nights. Hot chocolate has always been a favourite comfort food for young and old alike. It simply tastes delicious and as an additional benefit, chocolate is packed with antioxidants, and its combination of carbs and protein can help your body recover from a tough day. When you combine all of these properties, a warm, rich cup of hot chocolate can really brighten your day. But not all hot chocolates are created equal. We all love the classic Milo and milk

things up, but won’t leave a strong aftertaste.

Because at DaVinci Gourmet we want you to be warm and happy during these colder months, we have developed a range of chocolate sauces that have a smooth texture that will mix throughout the drink and stay suspended, with no “clumping” at the bottom of the cup. The flavour you are after will stay strong and consistent throughout your whole beverage. Now because we want you to be prepared for these inevitable cold days that are coming, we have added a few variations to the standard hot chocolate to make it even more enjoyable. For a rich and creamy hot chocolate, add a pinch of salt to develop the chocolate flavour even more; a pump of DaVinci Gourmet Vanilla

Science has proven that food can have a very real effect on how you feel, so a warm cup of DaVinci Gourmet hot chocolate in your hand can turn a gloomy day into a moment truly worth savouring. Sharing a warm cup of liquid chocolate can erase worry and fill your mind with happy thoughts and warm memories. Whether you choose traditional hot chocolate, a decadent white chocolate, or the old-fashioned cocoa with marshmallows, a cup of hot chocolate can work wonders on a cold winter day. So the next time the moment calls, try one

RECYCLABLE BIODEGRADABLE C O M P O S TA B L E WITH THE RISE IN ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET, IT CAN BECOME CONFUSING TO UNDERSTAND AND SOURCE PACKAGING WITH THE RIGHT “GREEN” CREDENTIALS FOR YOUR SUSTAINABLE PROPOSITION. RECYCLABLE, BIODEGRADABLE, AND COMPOSTABLE ARE ALL TERMS WE FREQUENTLY HEAR, BUT WHAT DO THEY ACTUALLY MEAN FOR YOUR BUSINESS AND THE ENVIRONMENT?

“Green” marketing has become so prevalent that there has been a name coined to the practice: “Greenwashing”. This is to promote the perception that an organisation’s products, aims or policies are environmentally friendly. You will notice this when companies claim that their products are “Eco-friendly”, “Bio”, or “Green”, but what does this all mean, and are these claims justified? When you look at any packaging product, it is important to examine how and where it is made but more importantly, what it is made of and where customers are going to dispose it. In Australia we have the infrastructure setup to discard rubbish in two primary places: a recycle bin, and a standard rubbish bin. As there are no composting collection infrastructure or facilities to collect compostable waste, it makes the lifecycle of a product fairly certain. So let’s analyse the three options for common products used in the Australian café market. RECYCLING FOOD PACKAGING When customers purchase a product in single use packaging, they are likely to consume and dispose of the product at or near the point of purchase, or at their home or workplace. If the product is recyclable, customers have the opportunity to place used packaging in the MRF (Material Recovery Facility) recovery bins for the

64-65.indd 64

material to be recovered and recycled.

SO WHAT CAN BE THROWN IN THE RECYCLABLE BINS? • Paper and cardboard • PET and milk bottles • Tetrapak • Paper coffee cups • Plastic cups

WHAT CANNOT BE RECYCLED? • Waxed cartons – commonly used to package fruit and vegetables • Bioplastics – recyclers cannot mix PLA with other plastics; commonly used in paper coffee cups • Foam cups An important issue with PLA is that, because it is of different origin from normal plastic, it must be kept separate when recycled, otherwise it will contaminate the recycling stream. Being plant-based, PLA needs to be sent to a composting facility, and not a recycling facility, when it has out served its usefulness. Foam cups cannot be recycled and must be put into the standard waste bins. SO WHAT PACKAGING IS BIODEGRADABLE? It is obvious that cardboard and paper are biodegradable, but what about plastic products that claim to be “biodegradable”? On the market today there are three main products

that claim to make plastic biodegradable: Oxo-biodegradable, Micro biodegradable and Bio-plastics, but what do they mean?

OXO-BIODEGRADABLE PLASTICS (ADDITIVES SUCH AS D2W) Oxo-biodegradable technology, as the name implies, allows the product to degrade. This technology incorporates the use of an additive that begins to break the plastic chains only when exposed to oxygen, heat and moisture. The type of degradation taking place is that once the pieces of plastic have broken down into small enough fragments, there is a second stage that gives microbes the opportunity to finish the process through biodegradation. This aspect may be true, but it is extremely difficult to validate, as the plastic fragments must have degraded to the microbe level. There are varying reports as to what remains in the soil and air once an Oxo-biodegradable product has degraded and because many of these products will degrade in a landfill, the CO2 gas will normally be captured and released into the atmosphere.

MICRO BIODEGRADABLE PLASTICS (ADDITIVES SUCH AS ECO-PURE) The latest technology available is micro biodegradation. This is the technology behind products like Eco-Pure. This technology is also

14/6/14 11:48:11 AM


65. in the form of an additive that is added to existing polymers in small amounts. Eco-Pure products use a wide range of ingredients to open the polymer chain and attractants stimulate microbial colonisation on the plastic. Because the polymer chain is open, the microorganisms can use the carbon chain as a source of food and energy. This is happening at the atomic level and the remnants are CO2, CH4 and inert humus. Because many of these products will degrade in a landfill, the gases of CO2 and CH4 will be released. The most important aspect of this technology is that this process activates with or without the presence of air, light or heat and will take place no matter how deep the plastic is buried in landfill. This type of plastic can also be recycled as normal if put into a standard recycling stream.

BIOPLASTICS Products made from a bioplastic like PLA will biodegrade in the correct conditions, but they will not decompose thoroughly in a landfill. This material, like the Oxo-biodegradable additive, requires oxygen for such material to decompose properly. Because landfill generally has very poor oxygen flow, it is difficult for bioplastic

64-65.indd 65

packaging to decompose.

IS COMPOSTING THE ANSWER? This is the most confusing segment of the packaging market for businesses and consumers due to the large number of “compostable” claims on products. Firstly, the absence of collection bins and industrialgrade composting facilities in Australia makes composting difficult. Bioplastics will break down into their constituent parts (carbon dioxide and water) within three months in an industrial composting facility, where they are heated to 60°C and fed a steady diet of digestive microbes; however, it will not break down in your standard compost heap at home. CONCLUSIONS “Greenwashing” is the latest marketing trend worldwide, but understanding the difference between the three main “end-of-life scenarios” for packaging in Australia should help businesses make an informed decision. It is evident that over the last 20 years Australia has setup our waste collection systems to support recycling. In cities such as San Francisco, the answer is municipal green waste collection,

PRODUCTS MADE FROM A BIOPLASTIC LIKE PLA WILL BIODEGRADE IN THE CORRECT CONDITIONS BUT THEY WILL NOT DECOMPOSE THOROUGHLY IN A LANDFILL. where you can dispose of bioplastics in such a system and it will be properly composted. Unfortunately, we are not at this stage in Australia. There are no simple solutions for environmentally friendly packaging, but educating businesses and consumers about the realities of where their packaging items come from, and where they will be disposed of, will help make the Australian café industry “greener”.

VANCOUVER: WHERE SPECIALTY COFFEE IS BLOOMING CHRISTINE COTTRELL’S CAFÉ TRAILS CONTINUE …

ur first trip to Canada took us to beautiful Vancouver. On the first morning we were directed to Greenhorn Espresso Bar in a leafy neighbourhood with gardens just starting to burst into spring. There were tulips and daffodils everywhere, along with other pretty things a person from the subtropics doesn’t recognise. By 9am Greenhorn was buzzing, and the barista took time to recognise our accent. He then told us that they have an Australian working with them and went on to explain how they make their macchiatos: lots of milk and a “rosetta” on top. With our policy of “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”, I was not about to argue. We found a niche to enjoy our milky macchiatos (“piccolos” by our standards), while watching Canadian-style rush hour unfold, pretty much how it happens anywhere else in a specialty café, with a few lingerers with laptops, the odd addict rushing in for

68-69.indd 68

a caffeine fix, small groups slowly savouring warm beverages on the crisp spring morning. I’d be happy to have Greenhorn in my neighbourhood if I lived in Vancouver. In need of a walk after our long flight over the Pacific, we headed for Stanley Park, a large area of park and tracks where, during weekends or late evenings, you’ll be dodging walkers, joggers and cyclists. At our estimation (photography stops included) a walk of the perimeter would have taken us over 3 hours. Opting for a shorter route, we wandered through the centre, where we stumbled upon an area of enormous hardwood trees with squirrels darting up and down. They are worth looking for! Our destination was The Teahouse, now an iconic restaurant with a fabulous view and seriously good food. For our afternoon coffee we visited Milano Espresso Bar at 849 Denman Street. There are also other Milanos in town, one at 36 Powell Street and their roastery at 156 West 8th Avenue. With a traditional Italian focus (their

motto is “West coast heart, Italian soul”) they succeeded in satisfying two fussy Australians with their espressos. Complete the walk down Denman Street, and you will end up at English Bay. On a sunny day, the ambience is spectacular, particularly on sunset. On day two we headed for Gastown, where Water Street is the loveliest in this historic precinct. In the centre is the intriguing steamoperated clock that tourists flock to see. As well as the beautifully restored buildings, a little further along are some interesting modern ones by the waterfront, including a Convention Centre/Luxury Hotel/Cruise Terminal that juts into the bay looking like a multi-storeyed cruise liner – with sails on top. Timbertrain Coffee Roasters, at 311 West Cordova Street, is very up to the minute and run by three lads who are focused on giving every customer the best possible coffee experience. Despite being open only a few months at the time, it was clear they were well on the way to achieving success,

with exceptional brewed coffees prepared in a number of different ways and meticulous attention to detail and customer care. Revolver, at 325 Cambie Street, is a very popular, upbeat place that has a small retail store attached in the premises next door. Again we found lots of interesting brewed options on offer and baristas who know what they’re doing. If you’re interested in old wares or just on for a completely different experience, you’ll find Luke’s General Store at 126 East Pender Street a treat. It’s an antiques/bric a brac store with a pop-up café (serving Stumptown coffee) in the middle and a barbershop. Seems you just find an old bench or chair to sit on and clear yourself some space at a table if you want to put your cup down. The staff will chat to you about coffee, furniture or antiques. All in all, an interesting espresso experience. Day three started in Yaletown – at Coo Coo Coffee. Sitting on the front porch with a view of the flowering fruit trees, we enjoyed two Canadian-style macchiatos. Yaletown is one of those reinvented neighbourhoods full of trendy stores and eateries – and a good area to go back to in the evenings for dinner. While most cafés in central Vancouver can

be reached on foot, you can get around the rest by tram, bus or ferry. The city map is easy to navigate, once you know the dividing street where east ends and west begins. As in the USA, Canadian streets are conveniently named according to numbers and divided according to whether they are east or west of a certain cross street. On the south side, it’s important to know that cross street is Ontario. Then you won’t get lost like we did! We went to the south via Granville Island, where you’ll find a good produce market. Go on a wet weekend day, as we found out, and you’ll be sharing with lots of locals and tourists. Best choose a weekday instead and a sunny one, if you can. The best coffee is a little further over, however, in Kitsilano in the west or quite a distance away on Main Street and Commercial Drive in the east. 49th Parallel Roasters, instantly recongisable by their distinctive aqua-coloured cups, has two cafés – at 2198 West 4th Avenue in Kitsilano in the west and 2902 Main Street in the east. Both are largish, fast-paced places with lots of customers and plenty of beverage and food options. We settled for pourovers, but resisted the doughnuts. 49th Parallel has an arrangement with Lucky’s Donuts and serves

them in all their cafés. Elysian at 1778 West 5th Avenue is quite a different experience. It’s a small sophisticated space where hardly a sound is heard – except for the hum of your perfectly foamed milk in progress. There we enjoyed one of our best Vancouver espresso experiences. Two others stood out in the area: Innocent Coffee at 1340 West 4th Avenue is a small café with art gallery space upstairs; and Arbutus Cafe is a popular café in a residential neighbourhood on the corner of 2200 Arbutus Street (cnr. of West 6th Avenue). Matchstick Coffee Roasters specialises in single origins, is quite a bus ride away in the east at 639 East 15th Street, but well worth the effort. With the roaster out the back, the aroma of freshly roasting coffee greeted us at the door. The friendly staff suggested we also visit their city location at 213 East Georgia Street. Again, it was a large ambient space, but this time we were greeted by the smell of freshly-baked croissants, as there’s a bakery on the premises. If you haven’t heard of twice-cooked almond croissants in all of France, you’ll hear about them in Canada. I’m not sure why or how they are twice cooked (I should have asked) but they are advertised like that everywhere.

VANCOUVER

IN NOVEMBER LAST YEAR CAFÉ CULTURE LAUNCHED AN EXCITING NEW INITIATIVE TO BRING SUPPLIER AND SERVICE PROVIDERS TOGETHER WITH CAFÉ OWNERS AND THEIR CHEFS TO DISCUSS THE DAY TO DAY CHALLENGES OF RUNNING THEIR CAFÉ KITCHENS.

A lady on the bus had told us to go to Commercial Drive, which made day four a bit like a wander down Melbourne’s Lygon Street decades ago – when the cafés of old had passed their prime, some had closed down and some new specialty ones were starting to spring up among them. We found three of the latter kind along Commercial Drive: Bump N Grind Café at 916, Prado Café at 1938 and Turks Coffee Bar at 1276. The most interesting experience for the day was at 1321 Commercial Drive – at Abruzzo Cappuccino Bar, an older café packed full

70-71.indd 70

of Italian men watching soccer. Tables were configured in rows facing the TV and the only female I could see was serving lunch. Clearly cappuccino was not the focus at midday; it was all about the pizza and the game. I poked my head in the door to be greeted with welcoming hand gestures, “Ciao, Bella …” followed by what I think was “they make pizza; the best in Vancouver here”. We never got to taste the cappuccino nor watch much of the soccer, but the pizza was good. Although small in number, the specialty coffee places we visited in this beautiful city were all

exceptional and had something unique to offer. We left armed with valuable advice: if you want a piccolo latte in Canada, order a macchiato! If you want a macchiato, you will have to tell the barista how you’d like it! ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Christine Cottrell is a widely travelled coffee enthusiast with a passion for writing and photography.

THE SINGLE BIGGEST EXPENSE (BOTH FINANCIALLY AND ADMINISTRATIVELY) TO ANY SMALL BUSINESS IS ITS STAFF. THE

TO HIRING

STAFF

owever, recruitment and management of employees is often the area that most businesses put the least amount of effort into and do not manage effectively. Often recruitment is a reactive process, rather than a planned one. Staff are often hired in response to a real or perceived urgent need. This approach to staff can set the tone for the relationship (one of unplanned and chaotic reaction, rather than strategic and organised). Common mistakes that many small businesses make in relation to hiring and retaining staff are: 1. HIRING TOO QUICKLY – most key (successful) decisions are made with a clear goal in mind after some careful research and analysis. Picking a location for your café is usually based around objective analysis such as foot traffic, available parking and population density. However, many recruitment decisions are based on reactions to subjective experiences, such as being “too busy”. Not being able to keep up with customer volume can be (and usually is) a result of a number of contributing factors (of which too few staff is but one possible cause). Other potential causes include inefficient allocation of resources, shop layout and overly complicated processes. Before hiring any staff, you should be very clear as to

72-73.indd 72

why you need the added position in the business in the first place. Some positions are easy to assess – a restaurant needs a chef. However, other positions can be more complicated to value. How many waiters does a café actually need? An essential criteria for successful and effective recruitment is to have a clearly mapped out organisational structure with up to date and detailed job descriptions for each position in the structure. This might sound like overkill for a small business; however, finding efficiencies in every aspect of operations is critical to the success of every small business. Even a simple organisation chart will help identify whether there are gaps (which should be filled and therefore justify hiring new staff) and where there is duplication (which can suggest that you have too many staff). 2. FIRING TOO SLOWLY – no one wants to be the bad guy. But persisting with a non-performer/ lost cause hoping that they will spontaneously improve is a low percentage play. More often than not, the poor performance will continue (if not get worse) until such time as a conflict event occurs. Often there is a lot of emotion associated with such events and, as such, it can be difficult to make smart commercial decisions. There are often two consequences for small business owners who fire an employee in the heat of the moment:

FIRSTLY, they end up filling the gap in staff resources, working longer hours and taking on more day to day responsibility; This, in turn, can often lead to the first mistake mentioned above, in hiring a replacement too quickly, thereby running the risk of perpetuating the cycle. Generally speaking, once you get that feeling that someone is not working out, it is the right one and it is time to implement a plan. This plan should always be based around honest communication. STEP ONE: explain clearly what your expectations are and why you feel they are not meeting these expectations (an organisation chart and job description will be invaluable in this situation). Give them the opportunity to respond … they might have valid reasons that you were not aware of as to why they are not delivering, which if fixed actually solves the problem; STEP TWO: map out a clear path to improvement. Some call this performance management, others call it mentoring. Regardless, if you show an employee how you want something done, you will either solve the problem or make it that much easier to remove them from the business. It is not only about fairness, it is strategic and planned management. STEP THREE: reward positive improvement

13/6/14 10:51:42 AM


73.

(communication is the key). If the employee responds positively to the improvement pathway, maybe they are a keeper and you can give them more responsibility (this rewards you as the owner also, by the way). If they don’t, don’t muck around … make the call and remove them from the business. Sounds harsh, but you can’t be fairer than (a) telling them honestly how you feel (b) giving them the opportunity to tell you how they feel (c) agreeing with them on a pathway to improvement that responds to both yours and their frustrations. If, after all that, they still do not improve, there is not really anything else that can be done. 3. HIRING ON ASSUMED TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE/SKILL AND EXPERIENCE (Resume and reference check) – I’m yet to see a resume that wasn’t gilded a bit, and I would be gobsmacked if a prospective employee offered up a referee who wasn’t going to paint them in glowing terms. Every prospective employee is a bit of a gamble, but hiring on attitude (you can always teach knowledge) is a safer strategy than relying on

resumes and reference checks. The guy who comes to the interview well-presented and prepared and is enthusiastic is usually giving off the right signals of someone who will be engaged and committed to learning how you want them to work. Attitude is generally the key differential in performance. If someone wants to do a good job, they usually will! THE FINAL PIECE OF THE PUZZLE? Documentation! After everything is said and done, the employer/employee relationship is still a contractual one with legal rights and responsibilities (on both sides). A clearly worded, complete contract of employment can avoid many problems (as both parties know upfront exactly where they stand and what is expected of them (job descriptions should always form part of the employment contract). There is no need, however, for this to be a complicated and wordy document – quite the contrary; the simpler the document is, the easier it is to understand and enforce. Given that most, if not all, positions in a café will be covered by an Award of one type or another, an employment contract

(whether for a full-time, part-time or casual employee) should not be any longer than three pages. There are some basic essentials that should be included in every employment contract, such as job title, pay rate, status, hours of work and termination provisions. Including these essential criteria in the contract often avoids the necessity to cross reference the contract with the Award (which can be confusing and fraught with misinterpretation). In my next article I will go through the key components to a hospitality focused employment contract and show you how to create your own document.

CREATING A

Sensory PHOTO CREDITS MICHAEL KAI

WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES SOME SPACES WONDERFUL TO WALK INTO? IT IS THAT INDEFINABLE “SOMETHING” THAT JUST MAKES IT WORK. YOU CANNOT IDENTIFY EXACTLY WHAT IT IS, BUT THE SPACE IS BOTH COMFORTABLE TO BE IN, YET EXCITING, WITH A SENSE OF DISCOVERY.

rchitectural theorist Juhani Pallasmaa (stay with us here) has stated that “buildings have turned into image products detached from existential depth and sincerity,” and expounded a return for architecture “to address all the senses simultaneously and fuse our image of self with our experience of the world”. Nowhere is this more important than within the interior spaces – the spaces in which we occupy and live our everyday lives. Creating a sensory space, one that fulfils one’s body with sensory stimulation, the smell of the coffee, the chitter chatter of people in the café, watching people pass by on the street from within, is a connected space. Henri Lefebvre, a 20th Century French philosopher, wrote of sitting in his apartment with the windows open, experiencing the sounds and smells of the market street below and feeling connected to the street, the community and the city as a whole. A space that is sensory does not have to be

76-77.indd 76

“designed”: some of the most delightful food spaces are ones that happen on the street, or back street, the tumbling down spaces, not the coolest place in town, but they do have an authentic connection to ourselves, to our past, and to our community. But what is a space that is sensory? It is simply one that works to fulfil all the five senses – touch, hearing, sight, smell, taste, not just our eyes. Sometimes the most engaging spaces are the ones that are overwhelming in their noise, light and smell. That is why street markets can be such an unforgettable and memorable experience. It is these spaces that evoke memory, stir something deep within ourselves, and make us feel a connection. It might be the tactile timber used on the wall in your local café, or the crumbling brickwork outside, or just the hustle and bustle of a market café, but it is these elements that build to create a space that works; you want to come back to it time and time again. It is also the sense of discovery created within

an interior that creates engagement with the people who occupy it. Perhaps it is the space slowly revealing itself and unfolding as you pass through it, experiencing it bit by bit rather than revealing itself completely as you enter. It is spaces that talk to you, adding their own personality, that become memorable. It is the quirks, the oddities, the small things that you notice when you spend time in the space that add to the flavour. It is like forming a friendship and slowly getting to know each other until you feel like comfortable old friends, understanding and celebrating oddities with each other. Spaces that create a narrative, and share that personality and bring a sensory experience together as a clear storyline are the ones that stay with us. It is the dimly lit wine bar in New York selling wine carafes labelled “cheap”, “decent” and “good”; it is the noisy sushi bar in a Tokyo train station with the sushi chefs lined up at the bar all working their craft with the customer queue outside, or the middle eastern desserts

Sensory

piled high in the window of a London High St restaurant waiting to be eaten. We have all shared experiences like these. In the design of the coffee roastery, Code Black Coffee, we aimed to create all of this, a space that fully engaged people with all of their senses. They could smell the coffee, see the bean production, taste the food from the open kitchen and feel the tactile materials within the customer zone. It is a space that has had a surprising

76-77.indd 77

reaction from everyone who visits; although perceptions of the space can be different, they all have a deep level of engagement with the design. It is this understanding of the deeper need for the return to these sensory spaces that will create a meaningful connection for customers to new hospitality designs and successful future food concepts.

THE BIG FAT KNUCKLE SANDWICH

SLOW BRAISED BEEF KNUCKLE, MILK BUN, BRUSSELS SPROUT KIMCHI, SPICY KETCHUP MAYO & JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE CRISPS

CREATED BY:

JOEL HALES AND BARNEY HANNAGAN PROUD MARY – 172 OXFORD ST, COLLINGWOOD MELBOURNE VIC

THE SPICE RUB • 4 tbsp cumin seed, toasted and ground • 4 tbsp smoked paprika • 1 tsp cayenne pepper • 2 tsp black peppercorns, toasted and ground • 6 tbsp brown sugar Combine all.

THE BRAISE • 1- 2 kg beef knuckle • 2 brown onions, peeled and large diced • 2 carrots, peeled and large diced • 1 celery stick, diced • 4 garlic cloves • 3 litres beef stock • 1 litre tomato juice, no seeds • 2 bay leaves, fresh • 3 thyme sprigs Rub the beef with oil and apply the spices to evenly coat all sides of the knuckle. Leave for three hours, or overnight is best. In a large pot, heat oil and start to cook the vegetables. Once browned and caramelised, add the garlic. Add the tomato juice, thyme and bay leaves. Cook for 10 minutes, then add the beef stock. Bring to the boil and simmer. Sear the beef knuckle on all sides in a pan, season with salt. Place in a roasting tray and cover with the braising liquid. Cover and cook at

82-83.indd 83

120 - 130°C for 6 - 8 hours. Check the meat; it should pull away from the bone easily. Remove the meat and cool. Strain the sauce and cool. Shred the meat ready for use.

THE KIMCHI • 1 kg Brussels sprouts, finely chopped • 500 g green tomatoes, sliced • Salt • ½ cup water • ¼ cup rice flour • 2 tbsp sugar • 210 g radish, grated • 2 garlic cloves, grated, using a microplane • 2 small red onions, chopped • 50 g ginger, grated, using a microplane • ½ large red chilli, sliced • ¼ cup fish sauce (optional) • ¼ cup rice vinegar • 1 cup chopped coriander • ½ cup spring onion, finely chopped • Horseradish Toss Brussels sprouts and tomatoes with a good pinch of salt in a colander and leave for around 20 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water, and place in a bowl. Make a paste combining the water, rice flour, and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a simmer until the

paste thickens. Allow to cool. Combine radish, garlic, red onion, ginger, chilli, fish sauce, rice vinegar in a food processor and blitz to a rough puree. Fold the puree into the cooled paste, add the chopped coriander and spring onion, and mix with the Brussels sprouts and tomatoes thoroughly. Add the horseradish to taste. Transfer to a container and let stand at room temperature for 24 hours before placing in the fridge. For best flavour, leave for 1 week.

SPICY KETCHUP • 1 brown onion • 1 tsp chopped garlic • 1 tbsp paprika • 1 tbsp ground cumin • 1 tbsp chilli flakes • 1 tin tomatoes • 1 cup sherry vinegar • 1 cup sugar Sweat off onion and garlic. Add spices. Add rest of ingredients and cook down 'til thickened. Blitz 'til smooth. Season.

MAYO • 100 ml olive oil • 100 ml vegetable oil • 3 large egg yolks • 1 whole egg • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard • Splash white wine vinegar or white vinegar

• Juice ½ lemon Mix both oils together. Place the yolks and whole egg, mustard and a splash of water in a food processor and start blitzing. Slowly add the oil to the blitz until it has all been incorporated, or until the mayo looks thick. Add the vinegar and lemon juice and check for seasoning. Add the ketchup to the mayo to taste.

THE CRISPS • 1 kg Jerusalem artichokes • Oil for frying Slice Jerusalem artichokes thinly and leave in cold water for 1 hour. Rinse. Heat oil to 160 - 170°C, add the crisps and cook until crispy. Drain on paper towel and season with salt.

TO SERVE Gently warm the sauce, add the pulled beef and warm through. Remove the beef from the sauce. Slice the milk bun; add the Brussels sprout kimchi, the pulled beef knuckle, and a whack of the mayo. Serve with the side of crisps. Bangin'! Great with coffee, even better with BEER …

THESE LIVE COOKING EVENTS DEMONSTRATE SOLUTIONS TAILORED FOR CAFÉS TO EXPAND FOOD MENUS THAT WILL EXTEND CUSTOMER SPEND BEYOND JUST COFFEE AND CAKE AND INCREASE PROFITABILITY. esearch by Café Pulse indicates up to 50% of coffee purchases include a snack or food item. Express Café Solutions demonstrates that through expanding the range and quality of food, this percentage can be increased, as well as the transaction value. “Would you like a fresh smoothie or omelette with your coffee?”... imagine the difference this could make to the bottom line. But what if there’s only limited space? Café owners and former restaurant chefs who start up their own smaller cafés often have big ideas for food, but are challenged by limited footprints including only a small or no back of house kitchen. Using flexible cooking options, Express Café Solutions will show how to produce various café dishes front of house, without the need for a canopy or extraction hood. Utilising products from Vitamix, Menumaster and Lincoln, the selected equipment can increase productivity through quick drink blending and food preparation, as well as express heating and cooking.

DIMATTINA COFFEE WA

IN RECENT YEARS, THE COFFEE SCENE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA HAS GONE THROUGH A VERITABLE RENAISSANCE.

M

icro-roasters and specialty coffee shops are popping up seemingly on every street corner, WA baristas are earning serious notoriety at national competitions, and the number of discerning coffee drinkers is growing every day. One of the companies spearheading this movement is Dimattina Coffee. With headquarters based out of Perth’s industrial suburb of Osborne Park, Dimattina has been a presence in the WA coffee community since 2000 and has steadily grown ever since. This year Dimattina unveiled its newly renovated café in Osborne Park, which has been received with praise from the local community. The space is crisp and clean, yet inviting and warm in the overcast autumn weather: “We wanted to get away from the industrial/reclaimed wood look that a lot of places are doing at the moment,” says company director Simon Dimattina. “I wanted it to have a timeless feel.” “Timeless” is a good word for it. The carefully selected décor is clean and modern – unobtrusive, yet fashionable. Beautifully finished American Oak benches sweep the entire length of the room, white “subway” tiles reach all the way to

86-87.indd 87

the ceiling, and tasteful local artwork adorns the walls. The café is divided into two distinct sections, (a dining area and a takeaway/communal coffee area) by stylish hanging shelving that showcases Dimattina’s current single origin selection and specialty brewing equipment. At the rear of the café is a set of clear French doors which lead through to the roasting room, where customers are encouraged to interact with the roasting staff. By way of equipment, Dimattina has spared no expense. A shiny new La Marzocco Strada EP functions as the primary espresso machine, while a matte black GB/5 serves as a backup on the back bench. The obligatory EK-43 grinder takes pride of place amongst several manual brewing devices. Being a wholesale roaster as well as a café has other advantages too; with a constantly rotating array of single origin coffees on offer (both in the grinder and as whole beans), customers are spoiled for choice with their morning brew. Another feature new to the renovation is the inclusion of fresh, local food made on site. The menu is simple but tasty, with various salads and baguettes that change every day. There is also a wide selection of delectable sweets available for

those with a sweet tooth. Dimattina’s café has always functioned as more than simply a place to get your morning fix and a bite to eat; it is also a mecca for home coffee enthusiasts and professionals alike to gather, chat about coffee and maybe pick up some new beans and brewing apparatus. This has been exemplified by the inclusion of a weekly cup tasting session held on Friday afternoons on the café’s communal table. “The cupping serves a dual purpose. It builds our relationship with the coffee community here in WA, and it also gives us valuable feedback on our coffee. We quite often include the public in our greens selection,” says Simon. This idea of building a coffee community seems to be a strong theme emerging all over WA and is a very exciting prospect; Dimattina have invested in that idea since their inception. Western Australia has taken great strides towards becoming a great specialty coffee destination, and it’s easy to see why. There is a huge amount of passion driving Dimattina’s team, and the new café is a true expression of that passion and dedication. DIMATTINA COFFEE 3/19 COLLINGWOOD ST, OSBORNE PARK

BEER AND THE PERFECT MATCH

THE CRAFT BEER INDUSTRY IS BOOMING AND WITH BEER AND FOOD MATCHING EVENTS TAKING PLACE ALL OVER THE NATION, PEOPLE ARE BECOMING ACCUSTOMED TO AND ARE LOOKING FOR BEER JUST AS MUCH AS WINE TO ACCOMPANY THEIR MEAL. CAFÉS CAN IMPLEMENT SOME CREATIVE IDEAS WITH LESS THAN SIX BEERS IN THEIR REPERTOIRE. HERE IS ONE EXAMPLE FROM THE JAMES SQUIRES BREWERY OF HOW YOU CAN MAKE THIS WORK IN YOUR CAFÉ.

SEARED OCEAN TROUT WITH GINGER, CHILLI AND SHALLOT SAUCE SERVES 4. The sauce can be made up to a week ahead and refrigerated in a covered container. INGREDIENTS • 4 x 135 g - 165 g Petuna Ocean Trout fillets, skinless, pin bones removed • Salt and cracked black pepper • Vegetable oil • ¼ punnet coriander cress (micro herb) or coriander leaves • Cooked basmati rice, to serve • Carrot sambal, to serve SAUCE (Makes about 1 2/3 cups) • 1 long red chilli, coarsely chopped with seeds • 1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped • 2 tsp grated ginger • ¼ bunch (½ cup lightly packed) coriander leaves • 1 green shallot, chopped • ½ cup (125 ml) Japanese salt-reduced soy sauce

BEER MATCH ONE FIFTY LASHES PALE ALE 4.2% ABV A refreshing Australian-style cloudy pale ale with a restrained bitterness and a clean, smooth finish. The use of malted wheat also adds to its refreshing character, delivering a beer with a lightly fruity nose, with hints of passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus.

• ½ cup (125 ml) mirin • ¼ cup (60 ml) sweet chilli sauce • ¼ cup (60 ml) white wine • 2 tsp sesame oil CARROT SAMBAL • 1 medium carrot, grated • 1 small onion, finely diced • ½ cup freshly grated coconut • 2 medium green chilli, finely chopped with seeds • Juice of 1 lime • 2 tsp crushed Maldive fish* • 1 clove garlic, crushed • 1 sprig curry leaves, finely chopped • Salt and cracked black pepper

METHOD Puree all sauce ingredients until well combined and ingredients are broken down. Transfer to a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. Season the trout with salt and pepper. Lightly oil a hot frypan and cook the trout for 2 minutes each side. The trout should remain medium rare in the centre, so be careful not to overcook. Place the trout on plates and spoon over some of the warm sauce. Garnish with coriander. Serve with warm rice, carrot sambal and remaining sauce. To make the carrot sambal, combine the ingredients in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. COOK’S NOTES Sambal also goes well with curries. It can be prepared up to 2 hours ahead and refrigerated in a covered container until required. *Maldive fish is a Sri Lankan ingredient available from Sri Lankan food stores. If unavailable, substitute with fish sauce. OTHER FOOD MATCHING IDEAS Sole grilled in butter with a twist of lemon and steamed greens served on a potato and celeriac mash.

NEWS FLASH

I

THE AUSTRALIAN CONVENIENCE SANDWICH AND FOOD-TO-GO INDUSTRY IS EMERGING FROM ITS SLUMBER, ON ALL FRONTS AND MEETING THE CHALLENGE HEAD-ON OF DELIVERING QUALITY WITH CONVENIENCE, AT A COMPETITIVE PRICE, NATIONALLY.

n recent times, some of Australia’s leading national retailers such as Woolworths, Coles, 7-Eleven, Tasty Trucks, have noticeably increased their levels of investment and commitment to consumer awareness and product development in the convenience sandwich and food-to-go sector. By showing the way, these retailers are now creating a new benchmark for others in the industry to meet and exceed. This is the very shift in mindset the industry has been waiting for! Our time has arrived. So how does the Australian industry now maintain this momentum of change it has created, and where does it look for continued knowledge, inspiration and benchmarking? In terms of momentum, the key

is identifying highly passionate and knowledgable career professionals from the world’s most developed sandwich and foodto-go markets such as the UK and US, and injecting them into our market. Like a shot of adrenalin! This solution has already been in play for a number of years with the major retailers already mentioned, which is the fundamental reason why we as an industry have managed to gain this momentum of change so far. The key now is to keep hammering. In terms of where we as an industry look to for continued knowledge, inspiration and benchmarking, the answer is the UK and Asia. The highly developed nature of the UK foodto-go scene, through mega-retailers such as

Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Pret-a-Manger and Eat, coupled with the dynamic and fast-paced street food scene of Asia, provides Australia with an infinite pipeline of high-grade innovation and proven product concepts. The Sandwich Association, in partnership with Passageway, are about to host their second Food-To-Go Innovation Tour of New York City and London; we look forward to reporting-back on all our key insights and doing whatever we can to help the industry maintain momentum! Exciting times. CONTACT

T

his year has been a busy travel year, which means lots of hotel rooms and some strange changes to my standard diet of home cooked meals. I am in no way a health nut, but as I get older and my body starts to crack and splutter and groan at me, especially on cold mornings, I figure that it is telling me it is yearning some clean fuel in the system. By pure need I have started looking at healthy alternatives that are still tasty from my café selections. Gone are the days I can drink beer into the late hours of the night and get up and slap down a big breakfast. I have been going out of my way to discover cafés that serve good selections of fresh and whole foods. My first enlightenment was when I stumbled upon Manna Foods café in Fremantle. My initial reaction was how come this large space of a café had such a long line up out the door on a weekday. I decided to check it out and was surprised at how this business operated so successfully. It was all about service and whole raw foods, not using processed food containing preservatives and other chemicals that were not there naturally. I am always very skeptical when I see the words, organic, vegan, raw and natural. In the past it has meant no flavour and a rumbling belly from too many beans leading to embarrassing gas. I was totally wrong; when my meal came out, it was beautifully crafted with amazing flavours to surprise the gourmet chef in me.

100-101.indd 101

It is interesting how such a primitive approach to food service is making huge in roads into café food. People in third world countries have been surviving on a staple diet of mostly raw and unprocessed food. What is raw food? This is the web definition: Raw foodism is a diet consisting of uncooked, unprocessed, and often organic foods or wild foods. Depending on the type of lifestyle and results desired, raw food diets may include a selection of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, eggs, fish, meat, and non-pasteurised/nonhomogenised dairy products. This all sounds pretty boring, but when I asked a good mate and chef, Kenton Shaw, who owns the Dorrigo Wholefood Store and Café about how he approaches the flavour thing, he said, “Sean, come and taste it.” So I did. Kenton is a great chef, and he showed me first hand how he could bring the best out of fresh unprocessed food. Before he and his wife, Monique, purchased the businesses, he had cooked his way around traditional food service in restaurants, pubs and cafés, cooking the standard fare. Now he is excited each day when he comes to work and sees fresh produce on his doorstep, delivered by local organic farmers. He then combines flavours from the large collection of dry herbs and spices and oils from the shop. Kenton has enjoyed the challenge of being creative again and gets a kick out of seeing the non believers like me enjoy healthy, balanced good food with, I say, amazing flavours.

My research into this subject took me also to the port city of Newcastle, to a café I heard about on the grape vine that was also specialising in great wholefood. I met chef and owner of Soul Foods Café, Meg Garnham, whose passion has been creating great healthy foods from paddock to plate. Meg started her café in the old KFC building at the entrance of the Hunter Street Mall. Most definitely a healthier food offering now! At Soul Foods, the majority of the ingredients that go into each dish are sourced from Meg and her husband, Mark’s, very own kitchen garden in Largs, near Maitland, NSW. Mark spends hours each week tending to the “Soul Garden”, which helps to supply the majority of the restaurant’s fruit and vegetable needs. What he can’t grow, Meg sources from local certified organic growers and suppliers, guaranteeing that even the breads are organic and eggs are free range. Meg’s focus is ensuring that everything you see on the Soul Foods menu is made on site – even the biscuits, slices and cakes. Soul Foods has become hugely popular with allergy sufferers and coeliacs, as well as people who just love the idea of fresh food. Meg has also combined a great café juice range topped off by well made coffee. Well, I am converted and feeling much better with my healthy food choices. It may take a little more effort to get into the vibe of this culture, but the positive outcomes far outweigh the time saving of the rushed modern menu with some longevity in life.

GLOBE-TROTTING C O F F E E

P I O N E E R

FINDS HIS PLACE IN THE CLOUD TWO DECADES BEFORE ESTABLISHING ST. ALI, ONE OF MELBOURNE’S MOST LOVED AND RESPECTED COFFEE SHOPS, CAFÉ ICONOCLAST AND GAME-CHANGER SALVATORE MALATESTA WAS HEADED DOWN A VERY DIFFERENT CAREER PATH.

“I WAS A SUITED-UP TAX LAWYER WORKING CRAZY HOURS FOR AN INNER CITY FIRM ... AND HATING IT. I knew within a few months that tax law wasn’t for me, but I stuck it out for two years before leaving to pursue my real passions in life: brilliant food, coffee and café culture,” Salvatore said. Spurred on by his Italian heritage and memories of a childhood filled with the aroma of coffee, Salvatore established his first café in 1993 at the tender age of 21 while studying Law at Melbourne University. Salvatore’s coffee journey started when he was young. He grew up in a household where the smell of freshly-brewed coffee was the norm and celebrated in his house. And yet, he struggled to find a decent cup at uni. So that heritage, together with the need for a good caffeine fix, was the inspiration for setting up a café on-campus. But good coffee wasn’t the only thing lacking on campus. A lack of culinary options also drove Salvatore to set up Plush Fish, one of Melbourne’s first sushi bars. “A lot of students, myself included, were desperate for a decent bite to eat, but the only thing on the menu was heart-attack material. So I found a small shopfront, set up Plush Fish, and it took off.” When it came to graduation time, Salvatore had 15 cafés to his name, a newfound love for specialty coffees and a head brimming with new ideas. This entrepreneurial spirit not only laid a solid foundation for Salvatore’s future business ventures such as St. ALi, it also gave rise to his game-changing view of the café scene, and the way he’s disrupted the status quo. Specialty coffees were the real eye-opener for

102-103.indd 102

Salvatore and paved the way for the point of difference in his business. At the time, people viewed coffee a certain way. Salvatore disrupted the coffee industry by positioning coffee as a celebration of the work farmers have done, rather than just another commodity. It’s this unique take on an industry, and a challenging of conventions, that leads one to draw parallels between Salvatore’s gamechanging work ethic and the disruption Xero has created in the accounting space. “I’m not just an early adopter. I like to align myself with brands that share my passion for shaking things up. Xero has done that in the accounting space, taking something I used to dislike – accounting – and making it fun, accessible and easy to do, from wherever I am: airports, music festivals, propped up in bed – and overseas.” With St.ALi coffee houses firmly entrenched in café scenes in Melbourne, Sydney and London – together with a range of popular specialty coffee roasting brands – Salvatore’s expansion plans show no bounds. With Paris, Berlin, New York and Tokyo in his sights, it’s no wonder he uses Xero to keep track of his business. “We want to grow and expand and go global, but we want to do it in the right way, retaining our brand essence across every touch point. Keeping a close eye on the numbers plays a big part in all that – as does Xero, of course.” While Salvatore had heard the Xero name bandied about, it took a meeting with his business advisor (over coffee, of course) for him to ditch his desktop package once and for all and convert to Xero. Said Jane Meinert, Salvatore’s business advisor

from Base Ten Advisory: “Salvatore’s a busy guy with a lot going on: retail venues and wholesale operations, as well as other business interests. He has several accountants on-the-ground, and we work with him on an advisory level, so Xero’s been a great way to make sure we’re all on the same page and facilitate accurate collaboration between all parties.” Having handled the conversion to Xero for Salvatore, Jane and the team have been focused on getting the most out of Xero. With faster ways of capturing data and better reconciliation methods, the St. Ali team are on the path for more efficiency and control. Jane added: “Xero has allowed Salvatore to use those small pockets of free time, when he’s in a taxi or stuck at an airport, to check in on the numbers across his businesses, and we’ll often log in at the same time to chat about how the various businesses are travelling financially.” Despite his high profile in the food and beverage scene, Salvatore still has a wellconsidered answer to the question: what do you do with yourself? “While I’m in charge of 500 staff and have to inspire and lead them, I also see myself as a futurist who is always thinking about what hot new idea is around the next corner. Xero has, through its convenience and ease of use, freed up my time, giving me the headspace to focus on new ideas and the future of my business. Because that’s what it’s all about: looking after the now and the future – and doing both of those things really, really well.” CONTACT

O

ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER COMPETITION … WELL, NOT JUST ANOTHER COMPETITION - IT WAS THE NATIONALS AND THE WORLDS AT THE SAME TIME!

ver the last year ASCA put on a great series of state and national events, which included over thirty individual competitions nationwide, culminating with the 2014 Australia Barista Championship, the Australia Brewers Cup, and the DaVinci Coffee Chain Championship. In conjunction with these events, Melbourne, Australia also hosted the World Latte Art, World Coffee in Good Spirits and World Cup Tasters competitions. Having all of these events over 4 massive days really stretched the ASCA resources, pushing an extremely dedicated panel of judges and floor crew to their limits. There are many people to thank for their selfless work and commitment in delivering a very transparent and fair competition. A big thank you to Ben Bicknell, chair of the

judges committee and Jeremy Regan, ASCA Board (Victoria delegate). Both worked magic in putting together all the important information for the judges, competitors and practice draws – often working late into the evening. Leigh Carmichael and Stacey-Lea Benjamin dedicated themselves enthusiastically to the demanding job of floor managers of the ASCA stage, and Geoff Michelmore took care of the mammoth task in setting up the competition machines and other equipment requirements. “Not a problem,” was his response. Not forgetting to mention the many judges and stage hands who travelled from near and far volunteering their time and expertise to ensure the events’ success. Congratulations to Matt Perger, winner of the World Coffee in Good Spirits. Matt is one of Australia’s most successful competition baristas,

having placed third in 2011 and second in 2013 at the World Barista Championships and also winning the World Brewers Cup in 2012. Craig Simon, another extremely accomplished barista, took out this year’s Australian barista championships and will now head to the World of Coffee in Rimini, Italy, to compete in the world competition. Devin Loong from Auction Room in Melbourne also secured his trip to compete in Rimini in June by taking out first place in the Brewers Cup Championship. Well done, and good luck to our Australian ambassadors. ASCA is looking forward to 2015 and all the events to be held over the following year, with South Australia kicking off the first competition. Entries are now open online at www.aasca.com/events-sa

axil coffee roasters 76 FLINDERS LANE, MELBOURNE CBD, VIC

(03) 9819 0091 Yes, it’s another arrow in the quiver for the fast moving Axil Coffee machine. This inner city espresso bar is typical of Dave Makin’s mindset, built on style and practical ergonomics. The pimped up Kees Van der Westen Spirit coffee machine is the hero in the space and is overlooked by a beautiful mural of a gorgeous girl staring down at you. The morning trade was frantic for a business that was just two weeks old. The espresso bar is true to its name, with great quality coffee, a small well selected batch of cakes and muffins – not too complicated, with quick service. The bar has a great vibe and early in the morning the light was quite low and the atmosphere was warm and cozy, which did not shock the sleepy body too much whilst I waited for my first brew of the day. And of course, this was beautifully presented by head barista Kristy, who has worked at all the other Axil sites learning from the Melbourne coffee masters. The New look Axil espresso bar had some new installations, including a new prototype brew

bar to handle the filter selection and a milk Juggler system from Six Simple Systems, which delivers fresh milk to the barista by its own refrigerated milk font system. It is typical Axil design utilising the latest technology. Already the inner city coffee lovers have sniffed out this location, and the morning coffee trade is building. The early morning all girl team made for a more pleasurable cup, with lots of smiles and great girly precision in the coffee delivery. I was lucky to be present at the café when the fresh cakes arrived, and I was soon tucking into a lush raspberry muffin as a pre breakfast first course. All the cakes are fresh baked daily and are well displayed on some cool designed cabinets. The espresso bar has been set up with a good range of retail coffee for sale, so customers can get their weekly fresh coffee fix up with some helpful tips from the professional staff. Café Culture tick of approval; good work, team Axil. OPEN: Mon – Fri: 7am – 4pm. Closed Sat and Sunday.

CARLOS & CO 3/73 CLARENCE STREET, PORT MACQUARIE, NSW

(02) 6583 9009

t’s nice to see a twist on the café service model, with a street food concept being such a huge success. Carlos and Co. offers those special dishes you experience when wandering the streets around the world. On the same menu you can be in America, Canada, Vietnam and Mexico. The creator of the concept is 17 year old Charlie Edwards, who took on the project on the back of his school hospitality course and his business study class. He already had a good grasp on coffee, being well seasoned in his family coffee roasting and café business. Chuck, as he is known to his mates, has an eclectic group of young hipsters working the business whilst he still attends school; he then gets to spend his weekends in the kitchen creating new menus. The menu is changing all the time, sticking strongly to street theme concepts from around the globe, which the punters are all loving. Chuck acknowledged some of his favourite dishes are hard to move off the main menu, such as the Breaky Burrito of maple smoked baked bacon with mini egg tortillas and fresh tomatillo salsa. The other favourite dish amongst locals is the Bahn Mi, which is based around the classic Vietnamese roll with a few cool twists like using a crisp baguette filled with duck rillete, crispy pork belly and Asian slaw. The food is

108-109.indd 109

simple and quick to serve but like most good foodie creations, there are some tricky elements happening behind the scenes in the kitchen. The drink menu is different, with a series of shakes in a jar like salted caramel and chocolate banana and peanut butter. Carlos also serves the full range of Jarritos Mexican sodas, which fit the street scene perfectly with their unusual flavours and groovy bottles. The coffee is supplied by local roasters Peak Coffee and delivered from a classic silver Linea La Marzocco by the well-trained baristas. The café is located only metres from the Hastings River, which is a busy waterway for recreational vessels and a nice place to chill and hang out. The customer base is the hip crowd that comes to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and the fun banter from the interactive staff. Carlos and Co. is situated right beside a local barber called Jimbo’s. The two businesses work in perfect harmony, offering a great model, which is now definitely on the drawing board for future barbershop/ cafés in busier city locations. So if you’re keen to get involved in the early success of a new project, contact Charlie via chuck@carlosandco.com.au This café business is a good example of the new age of café thinking ... being able to step aside from the norm and have a go at your passionate ideas.

crate louise 144-148 GLENAYR ROAD, BONDI NSW

(02) 9130 4668 It was a sunny winter morning on Bondi Beach, and all the cafés on Hall Street were pumping away. I wanted something a little more special than a breaky fry up, so I set off to explore a few café sites I had spied the previous day. I found a good sunny location on Glenayr Road at a new café called Crate Louise. The café/restaurant had an inviting feel, so I checked the menu and it appealed to me instantly. I chose the smashed avocado on sourdough, soft poached eggs with feta and haloumi and was pleased with my choice when the meal was presented. It was what the body needed after two weeks on the road. The coffee from Double Roasters was also very well made and well on track to greatness for such a new café project. After some investigations, I met co-owner Benjamin Grant, who has had this concept in the winds for a few years. Ben is an event manager who has been living abroad for years. He met his wife, Judy Hu, in China through work connections. Judy was a career hospitality manager, and she had the kitchen and hospitality skills to bring this project to a reality. The duo created Crate Louise, a combination of café, restaurant and wine bar, and the fit out in this

small space is very elegant, oozing warmth and coziness. Ben has an amazing passion for wine and runs the front of house, honing his sommelier skills. The wine list not only highlights some of Australia’s unique wine makers, but also takes you on an interesting overseas wine journey. They have secured young bearded chef Thomas Fletcher from Canberra, who has cooked his way around the top end of the Canberra food scene, including time at the famous restaurant Courgette. Thomas and Judy have combined their culinary skills and different cultures to pull off some great combinations. Thomas spent a lot of his cooking experience in Italian restaurants, and Judy is a well seasoned Asian chef. The result is pure pleasure for the customer, with this cross match of east meets west. What I really liked about Crate Louise is the smart use of use of three service times, breakfast lunch and dinner, matching three different businesses in one. A clever structure if you can keep up the energy levels. Good luck with the project, guys; I am sure you will be rewarded for your efforts. Don’t forget to try the Daikon Rosti ... my favourite.

BBQ WA R S

CAFE CULTURE MAGAZINE WAS THE PROUD SPONSOR OF AUSTRALIA’S LARGEST BBQ COMPETITION TO DATE

I

It was the great migration. From all over our fair sunburned country they did trek. They came in camper vans, enormous blackened iron pits in tow. They came with their WSMs, ProQs, ceramic grills and even homemade pits crafted from “borrowed” beer kegs. They brought their mates, wives, kids. They brought their excitement and their enthusiasm. And they all descended upon Port Macquarie, Australia in late March to form the teams that competed in the first Australian BBQ Championships. Smoking and traditional barbecuing continues it’s incredible surge in popularity in the land down under, as evidenced by the 20 teams that competed at the Blues & BBQ Festival – by far the largest gathering of professional barbecue competitors this country has ever seen. Held at the picturesque waterfront Town Green, the competition ran over two days

110-111*.indd 110

and was complimented on the final day by a fantastic blues music concert, market stalls and food trucks serving delicious smoky treats to the public . The teams revelled in the spirit of camaraderie that formed at their campsites. Stories were shared, secret ingredients were guarded and you could sense the electric atmosphere of the teams finally being able to participate in the type of competition that they had previously only seen via TV screens or overseas travels. To bring competition BBQ to Australia was not without challenges. Mesquite, Hickory and Post Oak are not native woods, and if you can find them, they are prohibitively expensive (as are many fruit woods). Most Aussie butchers wouldn’t know their baby backs from their rib tips, and since Australian bacon is taken off the ribs/loin, most available rib racks are usually “shiners” with a meagre amount of meat left of. Our brisket cuts are different, we

do not use the Boston Butt cut and, on top of all of this, we slaughter our animals at a far younger age than they do in the US, so all the cuts are generally smaller. So depending how good you are at finding a butcher who will cater to your needs, you may already be at a disadvantage before you even step up to the starting line. In an attempt to define Australian competition barbecue for the future, the organisers chose to broaden the individual categories where unless specified, any form of that particular protein could be presented. Competitors were ultimately asked to submit in the categories of Beef, Chicken, Pork Rib, Pork and of course, Lamb - the quintessential Aussie meat. Any form of smoking device/ pit was permitted, as was any form of presentation or garnish, as long as the entry fit within the traditional competition-style boxes as provided to the teams. The competition commenced at 3pm on the

Friday afternoon, with the first category turn in due at 9am the following morning, and the other submissions every hour thereafter. We saw everything from traditional briskets and pulled pork to chicken satay, porchetta and smoked eye fillet, all of which were tasted by an army of over thirty judges. When the smoke cleared, it would be The Meat Sweats, an amateur hobby team from Brisbane, who would walk away with the grand overall title, having dominated in the Pork and Lamb categories. Second place went to Jesse and the team from Big Poppa Smokers who achieved an incredible score with his pork ribs, and third place was claimed by team Yoder Smokers. Feedback from the Championships was nothing but positive, and organisers were able to glean an incredible amount of information, future direction and suggestions from the event. As such, they have moved forward with setting up the first Australian society for competition barbecue – Australasian BBQ Alliance (ABA). I myself have been invited to participate in the creation

of this historic association, and have recently completed several different Head Judge accreditations in the United States, including KCBS and CTBA, to assist with creation of ABA judging criteria. The Alliance is the process of writing a more refined and defined set of rules that will inevitably become the Australian standard, allowing them to sanction many more competitions nationwide. It’s the beginning of a beautiful thing. To find out more or register as a member of the Alliance visit www. ausbbq.com.au ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jess is best known by her “hardcore carnivore” alter ego, BurgerMary.

It is a common question

Well, here is your answer FIRSTLY, LET’S GET ONE THING STRAIGHT:

It is a lifestyle ... not a diet.

I ALWAYS GET FRUSTRATED when media promote Paleo as some new fad diet, when in fact it is a lifestyle choice that involves being active, eating well and minimising stress. When I first sat down and listened to someone explain it to me, it just made sense. The Paleo approach to eating is a return to whole and simple foods, with minimal refined sugars and carbohydrates. This is a diet rich in foods that were consumed as humans were evolving thousands of years ago. In order to eat Paleo method, consume a diet high in lean meats, vegetables, fats and seeds. Avoid dairy, grains and processed sugar altogether. The result is a diet most compatible with the way our bodies are innately programmed to process food and will lead to improved health outcomes, increased energy, and a reduction in blood

sugars that can cause cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Some of the clear benefits of the Paleo Lifestyle are reduced body fat, more energy, a balanced blood sugar level, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, improved sleep and improved cognitive function. At the Primal Pantry we strive to educate as well as feeding you delicious, nutritious food. Many people ask questions, and we are happy to share our knowledge to help them understand that good food does not have to be bland and boring. We let our food do the talking, but we also provide a number of avenues for our customers to learn for themselves why we believe the Paleo lifestyle to be the answer to a lot of the modern day lifestyle issues. Our Executive Chef, Tracy Hirst, is one of the

best in the business. She makes everything from scratch, from the delicious treats in the cabinet right down to the sauces and dressings that flavour her amazing dishes. You will be amazed that how we can make simple whole foods taste so good. When you visit our café, it’s not just a meal ... it’s a way to experience a different approach to food and learn how to improve your own health and wellbeing. CONTACT

For more information about Paleo, visit our website. The FAQ page will have some of the answers you are looking for. primalpantry.com.au/#why-primal You are also most welcome to drop into the Primal Pantry and ask some questions over a delicious meal. The proof is in the pudding, as they say!

MILK JUGS LOST THEIR

Magic?

BEFORE THROWING T H E M AWAY ,

TRY THIS!

I

n a café, milk jugs are one of those things that are used all day long and start to look shabby pretty quickly. After a while, they lose their lustre and become hard to get clean.

YOU CAN ALSO SOAK STAINED CROCKERY IN INVERSO TO BRING THEM BACK TO LIFE.

All of this deterioration happens due to a build-up of deposits from milk which when heated and reheated over time, can become a really difficult stain to budge.

INVERSO MILK JUG CLEANER

Luckily, all is not lost. You can make your milk jugs look like new again using Cafetto Inverso Milk Jug Cleaner with these four easy steps:

• Also leaves stained crockery sparkling

• Removes baked-on milk fats from milk jugs, pitchers and steam wands • Very economical – 200 milk jug cleans per jar

STEP 1 - Using a sink or a large bucket, add 1 scoop of Inverso to 10 litres of warm to hot water. Or, if the jugs are only lightly soiled, add ½ scoop to 10 litres of water.

• Unique blend of ingredients that are safe and non-hazardous

STEP 2 - Add the soiled milk jugs.

RESTORE DESCALER

STEP 3 - leave to soak for 30 minutes.

• Removes hard water scale from espresso machine boilers, domestic thermoblock espresso machines and milk jugs

STEP 4 - Rinse with fresh water. For residue that has really built-up over time, you will most probably also have a build-up of hard water scale, not just milk deposits. This means you’ll need to descale before you remove the milk buildup using Restore Certified Organic Powder Descaler. STEP 1 - Add 1 heaped teaspoon of Restore to the jug and fill with hot water. STEP 2 - Leave to soak for 10 minutes.

• Based on food grade acids, making it safe to use • Phosphate free, biodegradable and GMO free • BFA Registered and OMRI Listed for use in organic systems • NSF Certified

STEP 3 - Rinse with fresh water. Do these simple steps, and you’ll get a lot more use and better results from your milk jugs.
