Guest Monastery Coffee At Your Cafe
Our Guest Roaster program allows cafes and other businesses around Australia to share Monastery Coffee with their customers, exploring our range of blends and single origins. With whole-bean, filter and espresso options available, we make featuring our coffee in your cafe for a weekend, a week or even a month as easy as possible.
Our single origins change based on which countries are ‘in season’ - but that changeover is only every 3-6 months or so - and customers usually enjoy it as it keeps the cafe offering interesting/diverse. The seasonal blend is always available and effectively doesn’t change in flavour (despite being seasonal) throughout the year.In between all of that is a mix of 'Special Releases', small batch (very small) super tasty singles that are mostly experimental lots. Expect the unexpected, flavour profiles like mandarin, cinnamon and rum...
As a member of our Guest Roaster program, you will have complete access to our roaster and training team, Quality Control notes, promotional materials and of course, our entire range of coffee!
What Is A Guest Coffee?
A guest coffee is a certain bean brought in by cafe owners or head baristas which will only be served for a relatively short period of time. There are a lot of challenges that go into choosing a new coffee to bring into a coffee shop. With so many roasters across the world, many of which offer a huge variety of origins as well as international delivery, it really is a buyer’s market. As a result, we are seeing more and more cafes offer coffees from a number of different roasters.For some baristas, a guest coffee may be an opportunity to educate regulars about a certain origin they haven’t tried before. For others, it might be a way to intrigue new customers and get them to come into the café for the first time.
Why Should You Offer Customers A Guest Coffee?
Regularly changing your guest coffee is a great way to make sure customers keep coming back to try something new. Alternatively, it can be a good way to get new customers through the door.Guest coffees are also a perfect option for you to educate your customers. A lot of café regulars might not be aware of the world of specialty coffee. Having a guest coffee in stock is a good way to start a conversation about the wider industry and pass on some of your knowledge.Guest coffees can also help keep your team interested in the products they are showcasing to customers. They get to taste so many different coffees and approaches and train their palates and brewing skills.”
Guest Coffee And Your Regular Customers
Stocking a guest coffee in your café can help you stand out from other coffee shops in your area. It’s a way to show your commitment to specialty coffee, and your passion for serving it. If it goes down well, it could help you attract new customers and keep regulars coming back. Guest coffee can be a gateway to a region or origin they never knew about. So, next time you set foot in your local coffee shop, ask the barista about what’s on the guest list. You never know – you might just get the opportunity to try something unique.
