The Blessed Bean, Wagga Wagga
Coffee: one of those truly important discoveries in our society, with the ability to recharge and reshape people’s attitudes towards the day ahead. The Blessed Bean in Wagga Wagga is the definition of a great coffee.
With the perfect blend of world-sourced beans, community involvement and enthusiasm, Jason and Simone Dowding first opened The Blessed Bean’s door in 2011 after spending over 10 years in the café industry. Since then, the wholesalers have made a mark on the town through the introduction of a second coffee shop at the Wagga Wagga Airport, and via a portable machine that appears at most local events. They have also developed a diverse breakfast and lunch menu, complemented by a selection of cakes to satisfy any sweet tooth.
Their slogan ‘Live, breathe and love the bean’, depicts the passion behind the brand, with the team looking to form stronger connections with overseas farmers and help develop infrastructure and educational programs in much needed countries.
