The Coffee Guru Story

Since it's inception in 2002, Coffee Guru has grown into a successful coffee chain with established franchise stores across Canberra and New South Wales.

Dean Crowe, Managing Director, along with 2 other business partners worked to grow the brand into a what it is today, saying 'we saw there was a gap in the market for a company that was able to produce the high volumes required to make a profit, but were able to consistently produce great tasting coffee'.

As Australia's Own Gourmet Coffee Company, we aim to be the number one boutique coffee franchise destination. Culturally the Coffee Guru brand has matured and grown with Australia's expectations and love of coffee.
