Here we are. Introducing Maker Fine Coffee, located in the backstreets of old industrial Richmond we have set ourselves up a nice little space to roast some delicious coffee. It has been a long time in the works since we have taken over the space, but we have finally reached the other side and are ready to rock.
What is Maker?
Maker, as we are defining it, is in relation to the Maker Movement, the DIY culture with the aid of modern technology. We are applying that definition to the art of roasting and serving coffee. This Maker Movement is happening all around us, in many different facets of industry and business. There are plenty of young entrepreneurs out there just wanting to have a go, and making amazing new products and businesses. When we started our first venture over three years ago at Ora Cafe, it was an intense time of our life, there were so many things that we were learning on a daily basis, and of course we have made our share of mistakes. But without that "leap of faith" we would not be where we are today. That 'do it yourself' mentality with a 'make it work attitude' has lead us to where we are now, and given us the opportunity to continue with that mentality and create Maker Fine Coffee. The technology aspect of Maker is apparent ever more in the coffee world with the addition of devices such as the refractometer, and advance roast tracking software such as Cropster. We also have a few projects that we are quietly working on.
We hope to see you around some day, as we get our roast works up and running!
