An example of some of the clients that utilise my services and connections within the hospitality and beverage industries.
Difference Coffee Company
Difference Coffee Co. was founded by Amir Gehl with a single aim, to identify the world’s best coffees, and to make them available to discerning coffee lovers.
Similar to wine, Arabica coffee is graded using a 100 point system, which was created by the the Speciality Coffee Association. Only licensed judges, known as Q Graders, can score coffee based on attributes such as flavour, aroma, aftertaste, etc. The tastiest of coffees, scoring 80 points and over, are deemed ‘Specialty grade’, representing a mere 1% of the world’s total coffee production.

Based in London, Richard Brendon was launched in 2013 with the intention of creating a contemporary and timeless tableware collection, produced entirely by master craftsmen and heritage industries around the world. Richard Brendon works with some of the finest hotels, restaurants and interior designers around the world bringing fine bone china and crystal barware to a whole new audience. Stockists include Harrods, Bergdorf Goodman and Lane Crawford. They supply hotels such as Rosewood, Four Seasons and Gleneagles.
Intent on creating new world versions of his favourite Italian wines, Vinea Marson sought a property where they could grow the Nebbiolo and Sangiovese varieties in Australia.
In search of the ideal terroir, Mario, the owner/winemaker visited Heathcote and became convinced that the ancient Cambrian soils of the Mount Camel Range with its well-drained soils, temperate climate and evenly distributed rainfall, would suit these Italian red varieties, as well as the Shiraz grape for which Heathcote is renowned.
