about us

Having worked for a local coffee roaster in Melbourne for 14 years I decided to start up my own coffee label called "4 blend". I needed to source an industry expert who can assist me in developing 4 blend into a reputable coffee brand and take care of all the roasting and quality control. Finding A Way Coffee Consultants were highly recommended through an industry colleague who said Paul Mannassis is the person that will help you, he has a wealth of experience and is highly regarded amongst industry peers.
