Well Sydney, winter is well and truly coming. Heaters are being cranked up and trusty umbrellas are close at hand. But don’t feel too blue because the chilly season change also marks an exciting new winter menu for all our Cali Press cafes! From power up porridges to delicious toast toppers and our decadent superfood lattes, we’ve got a whole range of new and exciting mouth-watering dishes for you to try…
It was no coincidence that our first Cali Cafe was borne into the beachside suburb of Bronte. For us at Cali, Bronte has it all – cafes, sheltered natural rock pools, a wide and grassy park and of course – the beach… tis’ a true, local hangout, all year long. We’ve certainly spent many a perfect Sunday enjoying all that Bronte has to offer and we’ve listed a bunch of our ultimate fave’s for you guys to check out and hopefully enjoy on one of your Sunday’s too.
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.
We’re so pumped to reveal our latest and greatest addition to the Cali Press offering – our new Health Shelf menu. Specifically designed as a grab and go menu, we’re talking a variety of brand new healthy juices, tonic shots, wholefoods and snacks available now in all Cali Press cafes.
To help realise our vision for the Health Shelf we teamed up with certified nutritionist superstar, Jacqueline Alwill of the Brown Paper Bag and we’re happy to say the results exceeded all expectations!
Listen up health peeps; it’s time to get hungry for the Health Shelf – our exciting new menu additions coming to Cali Press fridges soon! After teaming up with certified nutritionist superstar Jacqueline Alwill of The Brown Paper Bag, our team has been busy inventing and sampling the healthy new additions to our cafe fridges that are just as mouth-watering and nutritious as they are convenient.
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?
Plans for another busy year are well under way for the team at Cali Press and it’s looking like it’s going to be a fantastic year too. This week, we had a chat with two of the Cali co-founders, Scott Glasson (above left) and Josh Johnston (above right), to gain an insight into what we can expect at Cali Press in 2017.
To our excitement we’re over halfway through the final month of winter and it’s already feeling like spring has sprung in Sydney! With more sun forecast for the weekend, we’ve compiled a list of ‘must do’s’ to make the most out of your downtime.
Being situated in the heart of Surry Hills (Crown St) our Cali Press cafe see’s such an awesome variety of individuals stop by for their daily Cali Fix. So instead of slaving away at the computer, we decided that this afternoon would be dedicated to popping downstairs and taking the time to have a chat to some of our Cali Press regulars. Here’s some of the questions we asked and what they had to say!
