The BusyBean baristas have been busy with café launches and pop ups across Australia this month.
Our Fairfield BusyBeans cafe is now open!
Our staff, BusyBeans baristas and locals came out to celebrate the grand opening this month. A huge thank you to Community First Step CEO John Gilmore for welcoming us into the space for our cafe to enrich the community through coffee.

The BusyBeans Gosford cafe is now officially open and featured on NBN.

Thank you to our local BusyBeans baristas, community and council members for attending the opening and enjoying some quality coffee.
Come along to 201 Mann Street, Gosford to grab a cup and meet our baristas!

But for 25-year-old Kane Cross, it has been transformative.
His mother, Jill Cross, says that since a Docklands company employed Kane as its in-house barista six months ago he’s been ‘‘like a new person’’.
You have to be wanted and needed and contribute to society in some way, and he does – he makes people coffee and makes them happy.’’
BusyBeans barista Kane is thriving at VETrack.
