About Us And Give It Some Beans...
With our love for coffee being our main passion and driver into our journey, we started experimenting with roasting small batch coffee(s) from home, and we found the results to be amazing. After a fashion and a whole lot of coffee drinking, we decided to take the plunge and purchase our very own commercial coffee roaster and equipment and increase the operation! With further research, and a whole lot more head scratching and light bulb moments, we perfected coffee roasting on commercial scale, and the Give It Some Beans journey began...
Once we decided to jump on- board and take our journey further, bigger head scratching moments began. First of all, what we going to call ourselves? Give It Some Beans, yes that’s it, but why?
The phrase “Give It Some Beans” says it all really, but why did we choose that name, rather than an acronym of initials / letters? Well, Give It Some Beans has so many meanings to us, but using the name spelt out who we are, and what we stand for. Last but no means least, it also happened to be a well-known phrase, of which people would easily remember at a first glance, it all kinda made sense.
Give It Some Beans in a nutshell explains what we do as a business. As a consequnce, Give It Some Beans was now up to the challenge in the coffee world. It is full of beans, coffee beans, so let’s “Give It Some Beans”!
Next on the list would be explaining us as people, and how we measure up to the well-known phrase “Give It Some Beans”, albeit the example used in the Urban Dictionary would have been a little more fitting if coffee was used as the analogy. However, the explanation relates to us as people; we are fully committed and exert full effort into every task we undertake, but more importantly as coffee providers. There is no place for second place at the Give It Some Beans Roastery!
Our next biggest passion to coffee, are cars and motor racing. Visitors to our website, stores where we are stocked and so on, have probably identified a link between our company name, coffee names, and the way we have written our workshop manuals etc.
When we built our website and named our coffees etc, we tried to build in a little fun taking our backgrounds into consideration and used those things that meant a great deal to us. We also tried to distract away from the traditional coffee scene and add in some of our uniqueness. Yes a risk not conforming to tradition, but why conform and follow the rest? Our motto is, if you don’t Give It Some Beans, then you’ll be behind the rest!!!
Before we forget, a small message to the pod drinkers out there.(reusable pod users forgiven). Bin those fancy modernistic machines and start drinking fresh hand-roasted coffee, you'll be glad you did. Remember, you are spending your hard earned cash on those expensive one hit wonder pods, the taste is harsh and overpriced in comparison to fresh coffee, so don't short change the taste buds you were born with. As a collective group of coffee drinkers, let’s not forget the environment in all of this. Next time you empty your spent pods into the bin, just remember their next journey! Remember, if you use fresh coffee, empty your grinds it into your garden borders, the slugs will hate it and your plants will flourish, with the added bonus knowing you have recycled something that you consume on a daily basis.
With Give It Some Beans as our business and providing high quality fresh hand roasted coffee, we would like to thank our customers for their important support – our business would not function without you guys!
Finally, we dedicate our business to good friends and family along life's journey; in particular brother Darren & Tyron Jones, who are sadly no longer with us, but both enjoyed and appreciated a damn good cup of COFFEE!
