Thanks for all the interest! Jaxon did steer me in this direction Chester. Eventually, it will be co-branded with Clandestino so it should be good! The bar is on the main street of Tewantin. 98 Poinciana Ave. Open from 5:30am, 7 days.
Had a fantastic second day thanks to the G20! A lot of people were in the area and driving up the North Shore early on. I worked with a second barista who was great. Worked in a cafe with the Swift grinders but has worked with doser grinders before and does good latte art which is great. Now have a cold drinks fridge and food fridge.
Saturday was alright. Could have been busier but it allowed me to leave the other guys to it and head home early. I'm heading away in a fortnight so it was good to take a step back and see how they work together. Confident that the quality will be consistent over that week.
From the sounds of things, today was a ripper! I had a day off which was nice but kept in contact with the boss.
The Big Step is nice to work with. It doesn't allow you to tamp or pull out at an angle at all, however it has a tendency to create a vacuum causing you to dislodge the puck. We'll see.
Customers are saying how much they love the place and that they have had the best coffee that they have had in a long time! Also, the area is quite 'bogan' so the area kind of needs a bit of class and people appreciate what we are doing. Already got regulars who have popped in everyday!
All in all, very happy with the first days and the staff. Can't wait for what's to come.
