On 7th August 491 cafes participated in CafeSmart 2015 to make it our biggest yet and huge success. Generous Cafe partners donated $1 per coffee sold on the day, supported by a list of top coffee roasters, sponsors and generous customers who also chipped in.  Last years $120,000 tally has been beaten – and $135,612 was raised on the day!  We applaud  and thank everyone who got involved, sponsored and donated, and make special mention of our top fundraisers and Award winners.

CafeSmart is a huge community effort – the whole of the Coffee Industry coming together so thanks to everyone involved.  Thanks to our Sponsors; Broadsheet, CSR Sugar, JOCO Cups, La Marzocco, Ordermate and Vitasoy who made it happen.

We couldn’t put on CafeSmart without the support of our awesome Coffee Roaster Partners, who ask their cafe wholesale customers to get involved and support them.

Our TOP 5 Roaster Partners who recruited the most cafes for 2015 were…

  • Campos Coffeea special shout out to Raf and Matt our top recruiters again!
  • Allpress – a special shout out to Katherine and Elizabeth
  • Five Senses – a special shout out to Ben
  • Veneziano – a special shout out to Sarah and Emma
  • Single Origin – a special shout out to Emma, Dion and Claire

CafeSmart is built on participation of cafes big and small, and each donates $1 per coffee sold.  All the $1’s add up, along with generous customer donations to help fund grassroots homeless projects in the communities where they operate.  Every dollar counts but it is also good to be able to give a shout out to our Top CAFE Fundraisers
