Bean & Leaf Nz's Coffee & Tea Subscription Box.

Project 2018-09-09 14:23:35 +1200

A monthly subscription box so everyone can discover the best brews from around New Zealand.

 

We all know New Zealand has a huge boutique coffee industry. It rivals the craft beer trade and we are known for having some of the best baristas and roasteries in the world. But how many of these hidden gems have you really tried?     

I’m starting my first small business and I need help raising capital to get up and going.

My vision for this business came from years of experience and knowledge within the NZ hospitality industry. I started out, as many do, in a cafe learning how to be a barista. Eventually I learned how to roast coffee beans for some of Wellington’s best known brands and along the way I discovered the complexity involved in making the perfect brew.

I've met some awesome coffee connoisseurs and it always surprised me that there were so many craft roasters around, making amazing products. But, without visiting their town generally they were hard to find and try out. So, I thought why not provide a convenient and hassle free way to connect kiwis with the huge range  of coffee and tea that's being crafted daily in all reaches of New Zealand. 

I want to provide Kiwis with an ever changing experience of different coffees and teas from NZ. The difference in aromas, flavours, colours and styles are amazing and they can all be found in our little home. 

And so, Bean & Leaf was born.

  

What will your help go to?

The capital raised will go towards my start up costs. This is spread over 3 main sections:

1. Website and set up

I have built most of the website and ecommerce shop myself, but I still need some help finishing off some details and getting specific software to make sure it’s all running properly.

2. Packaging

Part of the experience of Bean & Leaf is the excitement of receiving the hand-picked selection of teas and coffee. I'm working with a manufacture to create some custom packaging that both protects the goods and also is fully recyclable and/or reusasble. I'm part way through this process with my first sample but it needs some changes. This is needed to protect the product through the postal process and provide some flare and branding to the subscription box package. 

 

 

3. Product

Bean & Leaf is more than just tea and coffee. For the full enjoyment of the selections, a range of tea and coffee making accessories will be available for subscribers. I'm needing to get some more samples of products to add to the packages, ideal for creating gift packs like the sample image at the end. I'm looking at simple giftware like a glass reusable cup to cut down on single use take away cups, some unique spoons and tea infusers. But I need to sample the products first to check quality and reliability of suppliers.

 

 

What we do:

We hunt down and source the best teas and coffees that NZ has to offer, direct from the growers, roaster or suppliers. Many of these you will never see in a shop, so our goal is to give you a taste of the tea and coffee’s that are quietly being produced in our own back yard.

Each month we choose a selection of teas and coffee varieties from NZ's best craft roasters or producers for the new box.

We then send it to your home or work, for you to experience new flavours of artisan coffee and teas easily and affordably.

This is a subscription based monthly service that takes the hassle out of hunting for that new and exciting variety of tea or coffee. Every month, subscribers will simply have a new selection arrive at their doorstep. 

 

What makes Bean & Leaf different?

Part of the experience provided by Bean & Leaf will be that the brands of product are boutique, meaning they won't be found in all the grocery shops and aren't in cafes across the country. Most small producers only supply their local area. Our goal is to bring their brands to the people who wouldn't normally get to try them.

 

Bean & Leaf vs competitors?

We will be the only subscription box for NZ Coffee and Tea with ever changing brands. There are other subscription services that provide either tea or coffee but generally these are for a single brand. The closest competitor is a coffee subscription box with changing brands but we at Bean & Leaf think we can provide a higher quality product with the same option for Tea.

 

What comes in the box?

Each monthly subscription will provide a package of coffee, loose leaf tea or both depending on what option is chosen. The packages contain enough for either 1 or 2 people for most of the month. eg. 250g approx 12 cups or 500g approx 25 cups of coffee. 

Each subscription will come in custom recyclable Bean & Leaf packaging. Empty coffee sacks are also reused as padding to protect the unique brand of coffee or tea for that month.

Also included will be a "Brew Card" containing all the information and story behind that brand and detailed ratings of flavour for that particular brew. These cards can be kept for a record of what has been tried with a simple personal rating so you can "Discover your brew" over time.   

 

Why should you help?

By funding my project you're not only helping me achieve a dream of starting my first small business, but you'll also be helping me support the other small business that may struggle to get there name and product out there. 

Also, a sneaky gift to show appreciation always helps.
