At Cali HQ, we’ve been working our fruity butts off in preparation for the fast approaching summer season. With a bit of trial and error and maybe a little taste testing (guilty!) we’ve improved on some old faves but we’ve also created some super fresh, ‘n’ super clean newbies we know you’re going to love. So get ready to tantalise your tastebuds peeps, because we’re so ready to give you all them #summer feels.
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.
We all lead extremely busy lives and for so many health reasons, breakfast is one of the most important meals of our day. However, brekky can become particularly tricky if you’re trying to be healthy and /or cutting back on sugar, wheat and dairy etc. So when it comes to finding healthy (but still very delicious) brekky substitutes, we decided to put our heads together and compile a summarised list (because we all love a summary) of the breakfasts we should consistently eat to give us loads of energy, help us keep a balanced diet and enable us to feel strong and ready to take on the day, every day…
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.
At Cali, we’ve made it our mission to develop and create the perfect smoothie. With the growing community health scene, the demand for smoothies is off the charts and there are certainly a bunch of places offering them up; but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all of them are good for you. Certain smoothies on the market have been shown to contain up to an alarming 31 teaspoons of sugar, while others can pack even more empty kilojoules than you’ll find in a Big Mac! Yikes! So in case you were wondering how it works at Cali, we want to give you some insight into how we’ve concocted our range of super delicious smoothies to skip the nasties and spike the superfoods.
October has crept up on us and that means Halloween has too! Here at Cali, we know that usually means knock ‘n’ run and a lot of sugar… for the kids at least! So we thought it would be a cool idea to test out a pumpkin pie smoothie recipe by Honestly Nourished to see if it could curb that sweet tooth craving while keeping the Halloween spirit alive.
Well peeps, the verdict is in and we’re happy to announce it’s simply delicious! Since we loved it so much, Cali will be offering our own take on the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie for a limited time across all cafes as of this Saturday! But just in case you can’t make it in to grab one, we’ve popped the recipe down below. Enjoy!
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!
