After establishing a café that became an institution in Bicton WA, Renata Taylor decided to push the boundaries and establish Grouch and Co Coffee Roastery, in an industry traditionally dominated by men.
This girl has earnt the respect of peers, enhanced by her outstanding prowess as a businesswoman and the genuine empathy she has with staff not to mention the ever-growing number of customers that gleefully now call this roasting/café warehouse their own.
The growth of Grouch and Co has resulted in a major expansion which now boasts an impressive barista academy satisfying both the needs of the industry and any coffee tragic. Workshops and tutorials are now commonplace, including a unique touch, participants can now bring along their own coffee machines thereby learning how to produce the perfect cup at home or in the office.
Renata boasts great staff none more so than right-hand manager Sarah …. whose work ethic and positivity mirrors that of Renata. The gel binding this operation together is no other than Renata’s love in life Greg, who chips away behind the scenes roasting and producing quality blends and single origin coffee.
Another string to Grouch and Co is their wholesale Tea operation. Traditional favourites are available together with creations satisfying the spiritual or astrology minded, long viewed to be great for the mind, body, and soul.
On any given day there is a line of customers waiting to experience offerings from Grouch and Co’s front of house cafe, including babyccinos for the little ones which seem to walk out the door every minute or two.
Grouch and Co is located at 1/45 McCoy St Myaree, WA 6154 Mon-Fri 6.30am-2pm Sat 8am-12pm
