bb’s café roasts and blends its very own signature coffee. bb’s Espresso is a 100% Arabica blend from prominent Australian Roaster, Caffe Coffee. It is a classic three bean blend comprised of coffee from Brazil, Ethiopia and India. Each origin is roasted separately to a medium – dark degree, drawing strong notes of stone fruit, cocoa and spice as an espresso that carries through in milk based coffees beautifully, presenting a smooth, rich full body suited to the Australian discerning palate.
Their award winning coffee is complemented by their delicious muffins, which are baked in-store every morning for unbeatable freshness and quality. They also provide fresh, fabulous and tasty breakfasts, gourmet breads, wraps, light meals, cakes, slices and an extensive range of hot and cold beverages.
The first form of bb’s café opened in 1985 as BB’s Donuts. The first true franchised bb’s café (then operating under the name BB’s Coffee & Bake) commenced operation in 1991.
In late 2004, due to results from extensive market research, BB’s Donuts began its transformation into bb’s café. The new logo and tag line emerged as a result, and the brand’s positioning statement was developed.
The bb’s café system has grown to include 39 outlets across Australia and New Zealand.
bb’s café is part of Australia’s largest multi-food franchise operator, Retail Food Group (RFG). With more than 105 million customer visits a year, RFG owns the Donut King, Brumby’s Bakery, Michel’s Patisserie, bb’s café, Esquires, The Coffee Guy, Pizza Capers Gourmet Kitchen and Crust Gourmet Pizza franchise systems.
