Di Bella Coffee Partners with 139 Club to Launch New Café
Australia’s leading specialty coffee roaster, Di Bella Coffee, has partnered up with homeless drop-in centre – formerly known as the 139 Club – to officially launch its exciting new 3rd Space Café in Fortitude Valley.
The café launch event, held Wednesday 11 October, will see Hon Grace Grace MP officially launch the refurbished café which aims to replace kitchen queues and limited food choices with table service and an all-day, nutritionist-designed menu complemented by quality espresso coffee from Di Bella.
Di Bella Coffee Retail Business Development Manager, Fiona Smart, expressed that the partnership is a synergistic opportunity for the Brisbane-based business to align with the local community.
“The heart of our business is all about people, so it’s important for us to support key social outcomes within our community such as the 3rd Space partnership, which provides dignity-based outcomes for its visitors,” she said.
“Our people and intentions are firmly planted in the community and we have partnered up with 3rd Space to help facilitate a café style offering for their refurbished venue.”
Di Bella Coffee supported all aspects of the project, including venue design, fit out, procurement, menu restructure, coffee supply and team training through its suite of support services offered to existing café customers within their network.
“It has always been our culture to actively support community initiatives, like 3rd Space, who do such a great job at maintaining a positive impact on the community,” Fiona said.
“The café launch and concept will see positive effects on the local area and its visitors by promoting dignity, self-worth and offering job skills, such as coffee training.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of this movement, which positively impacts the Brisbane community.”
The official 3rd Space Café launch will take place this Wednesday 11 October between 8 - 9am at 505 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley.
