"This cafe is the start of a big dream. I had worked in the coffee industry for over a decade, and always wanted to be my own boss with a desire to influence the industry positively, " Sean said.
"Certainly I feel we've begun that with Barista and Associates and I remain committed to it. However, it should be said too my goal is to open a few more cafe's in Melbourne and create a brand."
"Plans beyond this exist too, but throughout there is a consistency across all these efforts: to deliver a great experience to each and every customer."
All up, B&A is a cafe that produces good food & drinks, and does so with a real attention-to-detail in regards to the surroundings. To be sure, while true the cafe is located in a area with a high level of competition; so too does it seem clear they need not worry. With a focus on delivering the fundamentals, as well as looking to go the extra mile with things like the loyalty board, Barista and Associates has build a good foundation upon which to build a great cafe.
