In 2016, we started roasting coffee in the garage at home and have grown tremendously.
Since 2017, after moving into a small shop in Monte Vista, our first Bean Authentic coffee shop
was born, and we were blessed by the amount of support we received from the community, our
friends & our family! Shortly after that, in 2020, we moved our shop into a bigger building. This led to a
whole new adventure and we are able to live out our passion for the food industry as well!
Now looking back, we are grateful to celebrate the birth of the Bean Authentic franchise, also
setting up & collaborating with coffee shops all around us.
We are aware of the challenges and pitfalls that small businesses, especially coffee shops and
coffee roasteries, might fall into.
Therefore, since day one, our vision was to build our brand and our business, using our different skills
and passions, in a way that we would be able to authentically lead by example, to live out, teach,
develop & lead other businesses & coffee shops, into “the more”.
We now do this through, offering consulting services to up-coming coffee shops and businesses, sharing
resources and opportunities from training and equipment to roasting, developing your own
coffee blends and White labelling.
We have partnered with Sanremo Coffee Machines, who not only sell Espresso Machines and Grinders,
but also has a vision to put a personal touch in everything that they do.
In 2021, we partnered with O’Graceland and the Menstruation Foundation.
These two NPO’s greatly touched our hearts, and we saw where we could help them fill
a need in the community.
They are focused on redeeming and equipping young woman to take back their dignity and build their lives,
to be able to thrive! We combined forces, and developed a 6 month training program to
kick-start a career with “Basic Hospitality & Barista” skills.
We are excited to see where the journey will take us, but for now, we are refining our skills,
building well, and multiplying as we go!
