A day in the life of Quest…

Here is a little video to show you what a typical day looks like for the team at Quest Coffee Roasters.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Enjoy 🙂

Our Quest Around the Gold Coast; Red Tractor Café

We’re back this month with our Quest Around the Gold Coast, featuring Red Tractor Café, which was established by chef Sam Perrin on 12 August with the values of fun, creativity and sustainability. This café may have only been opened a few months, but it has already made quite a name for itself – check out some of their great reviews on Trip Advisor.

Red Tractor Café believe that food should be enjoyed, rather than just consumed. They only use local and seasonal produce to ensure that all their dishes are full of flavour, while supporting Australian farmers. If it’s not in season, then it won’t be on the menu. Cooking with seasonal produce allows them to frequently add new dishes to their menu, so you’ll always have something new to try. There are plenty of vegetarian and gluten free options available also.

The bread used at Red TractorCafé is baked fresh daily, across the road at Mill Bakery, and they use the finest cheese from two local creameries, White Gold Creamery in Biggera Waters and Witches Chase Cheese at Mount Tamborine.

They make almost everything in house, which means better tasting food without the added nasties. Some of their homemade dishes include ice cream, granola, ricotta cheese, tomato relish, mayonnaise, cakes, muffins and the list goes on.

The Red Tractor team are passionate about their products and the environment. In addition to sourcing seasonal produce, they also use bio-degradable take away packaging and our very own Quest coffee. Their counter front is created by a local carpenter, using recycled pallets, and they will also reward you with a 10% discount for every brew if you bring your own take-away mug.

Our “Quest” around the Gold Coast; Daisy Days

Once upon a time, a creative couple named Meg & Nick, shared a long time dream of theirs with friends who then urged them to turn that dream into reality. Their love of all things natural and authentic, combined with a heart to serve and love people with quality produce and style, brought their vision to life in the form of a vintage travelling café and bar!

We are continuing our “Quest” around the Gold Coast, and this month we would like to introduce you to our valued customer, Daisy Days.

Vintage Daisy Days

Daisy Days is a travelling café and bar serving organic Quest coffee, quality teas, hot chocolate, chai, cold beverages and sweet treats as required. Daisy Days began operating in May 2014 and they have certainly proven that events are their specialty. Their trendy little vintage van, which is a replica 1950s Bondwood Caravan, is the perfect companion for any event.

They’ve travelled to the far north and south of the Gold Coast countless times. In the short space of time that they have been operating, they have attending a wide variety of events, like:

* School sports/carnivals/fetes
* Weddings/engagement parties
* Community radio events
* Surf Life Saving Clubs
* Child Care Centres
* Car shows (especially the vintage type)
* Corporate events
* Art fairs
* Baby expo’s
* Community sporting events
* Markets
* Festivals
* Various churches
* Christmas carols

…plus many other events. They have an overabundance of lovely comments on their Facebook page, ranging from outstanding customer service to how amazing their coffee tastes. Check out their Facebook and Instagram for yourself, and be sure to give them a like – that way you’ll know which event they’ll be attending next. There’s nothing better than a Quest coffee while you’re out and about.

If you are interested in arranging for Daisy Days to attend an event, give Meg or Nick a call on 0447733575.

We’ll leave you with a cute video they put together of their first ever outing. Enjoy!
