The Idea
So if you have been following our social media at all, you will know that tomorrow we will be launching what we have affectionately been calling our “Book to Cook Coffee Drop”. The idea started from a narrow space between the end of our walk-in freezer and roller door. When building our kitchens, council restrictions prevented us from building too close to the roller door. We always wanted to turn this space into something but it always seemed too small. One day we had an epiphany and decided we could put in a coffee machine and food produced by our customers in our own kitchen.

Free Coffee
What better way to run a coffee shop than to have ALL of the food prepared just behind in our kitchens by local Brisbane food start ups. This means we can support our customers by stocking their product as well as giving the community a chance to come down and support local startup Brisbane businesses. Tomorrow on our launch day we want to celebrate with our customers and cooks by offering a free small coffee (or hot beverage) to everyone that comes down between 6am and 12pm. Our coffee has been carefully selected and is locally roasted in Brisbane. Our cabinet has a few items with more to be added over the coming weeks as our Book to Cook customers begin to fill the shelves with their delightful creations.

How it Works
As the name suggests, it is a Coffee Drop, there is minimal seating at this stage, but the idea is to drop in and pick up a coffee and your lunch or treat for the day to take with you. While you are here you are welcome to check out our facilities particularly our office spaces for hire or our creative space upstairs where you can host meetings, workshops or training events.

We have been working hard to get the coffee drop up and running and now it is here. Starting tomorrow we hope to see all of your wonderful faces turning up for your free coffee and supporting local food businesses.
