Offering Perth’s best mobile coffee, whilst leading the industry in zero waste services. With a focus on convenience and sustainability, Better Beans Coffee is available for event hire.
Have you found yourself thinking “Well it’s easy for a food and drinks service to be low impact – they hardly produce waste”? Did you know that single use plastics derived from food and drink consumption made up 1,000,000 tonnes (40%) of Australia’s plastic waste in 2016-17?
As the modern business culture shifts towards sustainable and healthy alternatives, Better Beans provides the solution to your event requirements. Our hot and cold drinks package ensures a positive, relaxed environment for your occasion.
By carefully selecting suppliers, partners and charities with values consistent to ours, we ensure the growth of likeminded organisations. This is easier than in times past, with Australians becoming more aware of the environmental impact our decisions have.
Better Beans utilises minimal waste practises. Some examples are: composting coffee grinds, repurposing grey water, recycling soft plastic packaging, and any foods being served with compostable packaging. We recognise that waste minimisation isn’t only a procedure as much as a mentality.
Q and A
Who are Jonathan and Adam Marshall?
J : Well, I’ve been in retail for 7 years, 5 of those as a barista. Since being in this role I have found joy in serving people, connecting over coffee, and seeing their smile when they get their morning cup of coffee. This has led me to continue my career with passion.
In my off time, you’ll find me playing soccer, or catching up with mates for card games.
A: I am very active, I enjoy getting the most out of each day whether that means going to the beach, or on a road trip, or playing rugby. I grew up in customer service roles, but have also worked for the last 5 years as a heavy duty mechanic. In my time off you’ll find me travelling, or watching a David Attenborough documentary.
How was Better Beans Coffee born?
J: Better Beans Coffee was created through the vision of a road side coffee service. With Adam and I linking together, we designed and constructed a very functional coffee trailer. Whilst we are still in the process of securing our roadside location, we have had a great journey finding other income streams in the mean time.
A: Yes Jonathan’s on the money there.
What do you enjoy about it most?
J: Mostly the conversation and connection with people. Learning how to be a bit of a handy man and manage the trailer since we started has been very rewarding too.
A: Probably all the free coffee! Other than that, some of the people I have met through the business have had a significant impact on me. It’s really opened up a heap of avenues with people who have the same values as us.
It’s certainly a pace change to getting dirty every day!
Who thought of the name?
J: Wasn’t it me?
A: We’ll put it down to a family team effort.
And finally, why should people pick you for their event?
J: People should pick us because by making the choice to pick Better Beans Coffee, the environmental impact is drastically less than those who haven’t made the same targets.
A: Essentially, there’s a lot of competition out there. We better them by maintaining positive relationships with our clients, backed by a reputation that reflects consistent high performance.
