This is a beautiful thing.
One of the things I miss most about the north side of Brisbane is our weekly staff meetings at Dandelion & Driftwood.
Owners Peter and Penny Wolff are coffee dynamos, pushing the Brisbane cafe scene to really exciting new places. One of the things I love, as an interested observer of the coffee industry, is the way they champion the idea of quality coffee across the board – training and helping others, not just their own staff – though they do push their team pretty hard to develop through competitions and training, in a way that makes sure they attract and develop passionate people. Some time last year another cafe – who in another industry might be thought of as “the competition” had a machine break down, and these guys lent them a spare. They’re really impressive – and they make a delicious cuppa.
