When Dean started Five Senses Coffee, the reasoning seemed crystal clear. He had friends in PNG growing delicious coffee, he knew he wanted to create a workplace that was fun to rock up to each day and he wanted to geek out with cafe owners who got as excited about a cracking cup of coffee as he did.
While things have moved along a little over the years, this founding vision is still as strong as ever. We’re lucky enough to know a few more producing families around the world, our team is a little bigger and we’re excited to be working with some incredible cafe owners all across Australia.
Birthed out of an intimate knowledge of the challenges at origin and a desire to create a great community for all those we’re involved with, Five Senses’ driving purpose is to impact people positively through coffee. We strive to grasp these opportunities that allow us to impact across each set of hands in the journey of specialty coffee; from producers to our own staff, our family of cafe owners and baristas to the coffee-loving community that nurtures them.
We envision a future where people across the globe can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee knowing that not only were all the people involved in bringing it to life treated equitably but that their lives are actually for the better as a result of their involvement. Five Senses aims to be an agent for this future; collaborating with individuals along the chain to ensure deliciousness and the ongoing improvement of their lives. Whatever it takes – cajoling, inspiring, ranting or a cuddle – we’re committed to bringing exceptional quality, positively fueled coffee to the world.
