Lo­cal roast­ers ex­cel on na­tional scale

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - NEWS -

“The busi­ness started al­most seven years ago and started roast­ing cof­fee straight away; we started en­ter­ing the com­pe­ti­tion for feed­back pur­poses and we’ve just so hap­pened to have won an award each year,” Mr Ry­der said.

“We had an olive grove down at Wool­shed Falls and that was get­ting com­mer­cial yields for oils and the like.

“In the back of my wife, Lyn, and my mind was we wanted a lit­tle deli or cof­fee shop to sell our prod­uct.

“A mate of mine said you’d be mad to run a cof­fee shop, there’s too many vari­ables, and that we would be bet­ter off be­com­ing a cof­fee roaster.

“We bought a cof­fee roaster and we’ve gone from there.”

Mrs Ry­der be­gan the roast­ing process and Ben needed to step up af­ter his wife broke her shoul­der just eight weeks out from their in­au­gu­ral roast­ing com­pe­ti­tion. She is now the chef at the café. The Ry­ders wished to thank the com­mu­nity for their sup­port fol­low­ing the awards.
