 Our History

The original shop sat six people.

Our Beginnings

Owner and coffee roaster Richard Emery opened
The Bean Barn on 20 April 2005 with a 5kg Probat coffee roaster and one part time staff member.

The original shop was right across the road from our current location in Sturt Street, and sat just 6 people.  

The Current Shop

In 2007 we needed to expand and moved to our current location at 217 Sturt Street Ballarat.

We have grown to a staff of seven, including Richard, and recently upgraded to a 12kg Diedrich coffee roaster.  See photos of the roaster being installed here.
