Sunshine Espresso

Lomandra Dr, Currimundi

IN the middle of planning a wedding, owners Bec Seemann and Aaron Craig decided to put their careers on hold and open a coffee shop.

In just 10 months, Sunshine Sunshine Espresso has become the name on almost everyone's lips when it comes to a great cuppa on the Sunshine Coast.

The former personal trainer and marketing manager took a step back from her fast-paced career in 2014 to try her hand in the coffee business.

"Aaron has been a barista forever. It's our first business in the industry so we're newbies," Ms Seemann said.

Despite being new to the scene, the couple have the community hooked on their Sunny Boy Original blend and syringe injectable donuts.

"Coffee is a ritual, it's a time out, it's a place where you can get a moment to yourself," she said.

"Our shop backs on to a park and we're in a pretty community-orientated area so it's a great place to hang out."

As for the coffee on everyone's lips, a flat white usually did the trick.

"You can't go past the good ol' flat white," Ms Seemann said.

"Double shots are also becoming more common and the Coast has a good reputation for lactose free milk."

While they may be leading the pack when it comes to coffee on the Coast, the couple said they welcomed competition.

"I think growth is great, we love it. I think competition in any industry should be welcomed because it raises your own standards," Ms Seemann said.


The Good Bean

THE Good Bean grew from a desire to be more than just a cafe.

Catering to families, pet lovers, coffee connoisseurs and the health conscious, there's truly something for everyone here.
