When Craig Blanche and Jena Catlow had their first sip of organic coffee at Storm in a Coffee Cup, all they could say was “wow”.
The duo were so impressed that when the business came on the market in November, they took a leap of faith and purchased it.
Buying a holiday house near Lake Victoria in March 2018, the pair said when the business came up for sale they jumped at the chance to become established locally, making the move from Lismore.
“It was difficult moving from Lismore because of what we had established there, but this was a new challenge for the both of us.” Jena said.
“It was something we both wanted to do and had spoken about in the past, so when the opportunity presented itself we jumped at it.”
Shortening the business name to Storm Café, Craig said the café is already well established in town and the aim is to further build on that.
