It was love at first sight when Adam Brady first walked into roaster, baker and sandwich maker Charlie Lovett in Sydney. A few years later, he’s got his very own Charlie Lovett Café, right on the Yarra River at South Wharf.
What do you like about being involved with coffee and hospitality?
Love the flavours, aromas, range of coffee and training my palate. Love hospitality because I love engaging with people and food. I love the buzz the industry creates.
What makes you get out of bed in the morning?
My family, my partner and the extension of my family, my customers and my staff.
Have you had a chance to visit any of the other venues at South Wharf? Do you have any favourite dishes/drinks there?
Yes, I did my research and I think everyone has something special to offer. However, for me, Bang Pop stands out. OMG, Hamish and his team provide the best service with the most amazing food.
When did you first hear of Charlie Lovett?
I was walking along George Street, Ultimo in Sydney and I came across this amazing concept of a roaster, baker, sandwich maker. The roasting concept fascinated me and I walked in to apply for a job.
What would be your advice to people thinking about starting their own roastery/cafe?
Just get out of bed each day and take it as it comes.
Is there anything else we should know?
Charlie Lovett is not just a coffee shop but a place that is fun to be at. It is an experience!Tags: Charlie Lovett, Coffee Roaster, Docklands, Melbourne, South Wharf
