About Simply Beans
Our Director of Simply Beans and Roast Master Giuseppe Anapo has been around coffee since birth.
Giuseppe’s earliest memories are of waking up as the coffee aroma permeated throughout his family’s home from the Caffetiere on the stove, then eagerly waiting to share an espresso with his father to start the day.
Since then Giuseppe doesn’t just like coffee, HE LOVES IT!!
Having over 40 years experience in the hospitality industry across numerous areas from 5 Star Dining to Master Roaster, his knowledge and passion is extensive.
This is seen in his hands on approach, from personally selecting the best estate grown green coffee beans, creating, testing and analysing then finally roasting award winning coffees.
The business was born in 2009 roasting in his home garage. In 2010, realising that there wasn’t a Coffee Roaster in the City of Logan in the Greater Brisbane area, he moved the business to Underwood to a 50sq metre premises on Logan Road.
For family reasons, Giuseppe had to hold the reins in the business for several years, but as circumstances changed and with the move to Compton Road premises, Simply Beans has grown into a one stop coffee house, with a buzzing Espresso Bar, Retail Shop and selected wholesale clients from all around Australia.
