United Blends – the Many Faces of Zarraffa’s
Throughout the month of January, we will be showcasing some of our talented team members from around the country!
Australian-owned and operated, for the past two decades Zarraffa’s has grown as a family of businesses and here are just a few of our familiar faces to tell you their story, in their own words!
Zarraffa’s Coffee Kalgoorlie, WA
What did you do before you joined Zarraffa’s?
My background is as a WHS officer at a logging company, and sheep shearing!
Number of years with Zarraffa’s?
When was the store established?
Six years ago.
What is your favourite Zarraffa’s beverage?
I love the Caramelised Caffe Mocha with macadamia syrup – it tastes like a Snickers Bar!
Tell us more about working in your local community:
When Kalgoorlie was hit with a massive storm that cut the power to most of the town, our store still had power, so customers were coming in droves to get coffee! It was such a surreal experience to be serving our locals when some of their homes had been destroyed and they had nowhere to go.
The whole town was in distress but it was a great feeling to be able to serve people and our community during such a difficult time.
We also love giving back to the local community in a number of different ways, and currently sponsor a local softball team, the local Auskick program, and a number of PCYC youth incentive programs. We also offer a Christmas dinner to the homeless in Kalgoorlie.
I love meeting all of the different people who visit our store from all walks of life, and I’m lucky enough to work with my sister Cody and my children, Reivyn and Joseph! You could say coffee was in our blood!
