There are some changes coming to Cali Press – and we can’t wait for them to kick off. As of late, we have seen a great deal of coverage about the ‘war on waste’ and see that many cafes like ours are jumping on board to go green and sustainable. At Cali Press, we are fully behind this initiative and doing our bit to help make a difference. And this is not only great news for our Cali team, our cafes and customers but for our planet too. So check out what you can expect us to be changing soon and the initiates we hope to have a positive impact.
It’s a scientific fact that chatting to your barista in the morning has the ability to improve your mood. Seriously. A study found that the simple act of chatting to your barista in the morning could be transformed into a highly positive experience. Somewhere along the line, you’ve likely realised how much you dig your barista… they help you wake up in the morning, remember your name and always leave you in a better mood! But how do they feel about you? We sat down with Cali Double Bay barista Andy, to find out what it takes to become your barista’s favourite customer.
As part of the celebration for our Coogee cafe’s first birthday we sat down with location manager Kimmy, team leader Libby and bubbly barista Indy for a chat on all the things they love about the area and what makes Coogee such a unique beach side suburb. And as a special thank you for all of you juice and smoothie lovers out there, we’ll be ringing in the big numero uno this Saturday the 1st of April with a 2 for 1* offer on all small juices and smoothies. Simply drop into Cali Coogee between 6:30am to 5:30pm, wish the gang a ‘Happy Birthday’ and enjoy the free deliciousness!
In launching Cali Press, one of our main goals was to make sure we had a customer loyalty rewards program that awarded you for including us on your journey towards a healthier lifestyle.
Becoming a Cali Rewards member means you’ll be able to gain loyalty points which you can then redeem for a free coffee or an in-store discount. Other awesome benefits are a free juice on your birthday, exclusive access to new products and offers as well as discounted cleanses throughout the year! So what are you waiting for?
Long gone are the days of a simple coffee order, and while full fat and straight from the cow might still be knocking around, it’s certainly gained a few competitors over the years. Vegan ‘mylk’ options frequently generate chit-chat among our Cali baristas and we’ve even gone as far as to debate cockroach mylk! So with all this choice available, we wanted to see how all these vegan mylks measure up against each other. How do they taste? What are they good for? And why should we consider them over the good ol’ cow? Here’s our take on it:
If you’re a coffee enthusiast it’s highly likely you’ve heard of ‘Bulletproof Coffee’, but if you haven’t your life may be about to change forever. True to its name, slamming one of these “bulletproof” bad boys down in the morning should leave you feeling invincible for the remainder of your day.
Our baristas are a huge part of the Cali Press family, they make sure our coffee is expertly prepared with attention to detail so you get that perfect cup every single time. So often our customers ask our baristas, “what’s the secret”? That’s why we conducted an interview with the Manager of Cali Press Bondi and an outstanding barista in his own right, our very own, Ricky Recalcati.
Today we strolled down to Coogee for our regular afternoon pick me up (today was The Pacino) and instead of scrolling through emails while we sipped away, we decided to get to know some of our customers a little better. Here’s what we had to ask them and here’s what they had to say!
Listen up peeps! There is a strong chance you could be missing out on a seriously discounted version of your afternoon caffeine fix. Between 3PM and 4PM, Happy Hour has been sweeping the neighbourhood of Surry Hills while our Cali Press cafe roasts up $2 coffees, every weekday. No, we aren’t joking.
Below is an interview conducted with Cali Press cafe Manager and barista, Johnnie Dritsas.
