Trade coffee counter culture is a new startup based in Adelaide, South Australia, and has been developing a coffee trading platform since 2016.
The team is made up of a couple of friends who grew up trading coffee in Australia and had the idea to launch their own coffee trading service.
Coffee counter culture’s founder Sam McKeown, who lives in the CBD with his wife and son, said he has been using coffee since he was a child.
“I used to go to cafes for my coffee,” he said.
“It was a really simple process, and there was a lot of interaction with people.”
The founders decided to go with the local market because it was cheap and easy to access.
“We’ve had coffee all the way down the street from my office,” he explained.
“If it wasn’t for the coffee, I don’t think we’d be here today.”
The cafe scene is thriving in the Adelaide CBD, so the market there is always full.
“You can actually make a good amount of money trading coffee for a reasonable price.”
The startup started with just one person, but it has grown to include more than 100 customers.
“Our coffee market has grown over time from just one to hundreds of people,” Mr McKeoow said.’
People are really good at it’Coffeemakers who have tried the trade counter culture service say it was easy to use and the people who were able to use it were really friendly.
“There’s always been a really good community around this, and the staff are always really helpful,” Mr McCoey said.
Coke counter culture co-founder Sam McKeeow says people are really friendly to trade coffee.
“People are always asking questions and are always willing to help you,” he told 7.30.
“For the most part it’s a really friendly, friendly community.”
And you can see it in the fact that they have people selling on the coffee for them.
“Coffe market in Adelaide has grown from just a single person to more than a hundred people.

They’re really good with the trade and they’re really easy to understand, they really like talking to you, they’re very open,” Mr McDaid said.
The service has become so popular it has recently expanded to include other coffee markets in Melbourne and Brisbane.”
Obviously you’re trading with people all over the country, so you can make a lot more money there,” Mr McNeely said.
Mr McKeow says the trade counters are a great way to connect with coffee growers in other parts of the world.”
Hopefully, in the future we can open up the trade to other places, which will allow for more commerce and hopefully increase the supply and decrease the demand,” he added.
