esprezzo-consultWhy we can help

“Jason and Brianna (that’s us!) are the owners of a successful cafe for 7 years and going strong! Under our passionate direction, the cafe has been successfully re-branded twice and is growing year-on-year, showing no signs of slowing down.

As active members of the Perth coffee community we believe that the cafe industry should be accessible to all, though it is more difficult that most expect. We want to help those who love the industry as much as we do to succeed by helping to remove the traps and pitfalls so that you can build a smooth-running, profitable machine.”


Jason

First trained as a chef at the age of 16 in NZ, Jason has worked in hospitality as a chef and barista for the last 25 years. Over the years he has competed in numerous barista competitions and created specialised coffee blends for the couple’s cafe in conjunction with their roaster – he is ridiculously passionate about coffee!

Having worked for both independent and franchise businesses he can see the workings, benefits and drawbacks of both and his industry knowledge allows him insight into both front and back of house – and it is this knowledge that he happily shares to help improve the Perth cafe scene.

Jason is also, in his spare time, an involved dad, doting husband and (according to Brianna) a super awesome guy!


Brianna

With an all-consuming passion for the hospitality industry and for healthy food – how it affects us in our lives and the joy it offers – Brianna brings a unique perspective to the food service ‘table’, so to speak.

Over the years Brianna gained insights into the industry as a recruiter – seeing the rise and falls of venues, the difficulties of recruitment and staff training and has developed an overall picture of the Perth market. Being an owner of a thriving cafe has further added to her in-depth knowledge of all things ‘cafe’.

Oh, and Brianna was also named Winner of Perth Entrepreneur X Factor, 2014 – a sign of her ability to ‘think outside the box’ as well as her conceptual and planning capabilities.

Mother of two and a self-confessed foodie and coffee lover, Brianna’s enthusiasm is seemingly boundless!
