After launching in Fitzroy in 2013, Industry Beans has quickly become a favourite caffeine provider among Melburnians and the business has grown to several locations across Melbourne. It's not always feasible to pop into a café for your morning fix, but now you can get that distinctive Industry Beans flavour from the comfort of your home by subscribing to the Espresso Club.
Membership includes a recurring monthly supply of beans and a De'Longhi Prestigio espresso machine that is capable of grinding, brewing and steaming your coffee. Similar to a phone plan, you'll start by paying $29 per week for the first 12 months, and afterwards you'll own your espresso machine outright. At that point, you'll pay just $9 per week – around the price of two barista coffees.
Never pulled an espresso shot or steamed milk before? Not a problem – your membership will also include access to training and support services like video guides, live chats and on the phone support. And while the package should include everything you need to get started, if there's anything else that you desire, you'll also be able to access exclusive Industry Beans discounts and benefits. To subscribe or learn more about the Espresso Club, head to the Industry Beans website.
