Following the frog at dc Laundry

‘dc’ are great supporters of Rainforest Alliance and are dedicated to helping give back to the industry in which they operate.

Café Culture recently had the pleasure of attending yet another important industry event at the “dc” Laundry, Ducale Coffee’s newest coffee space in Kings Cross in Sydney. The night was part of creating awareness and promoting the great work of Rainforest Alliance and it’s ‘Follow the Frog Week’ initiative. ‘dc’ are great supporters of Rainforest Alliance and are dedicated to helping give back to the industry in which they operate.

Along with delicious food and plenty to drink the event featured tastings from a range of Rainforest Alliance Certified coffees. The guest speaker for the evening was Anita Neville who spoke about all the good work for the environment and farming communities that Rain Forest Alliance was involved. The movement has evolved into a worldwide body from its original setup looking after third world banana growers.

“dc” Laundry hosted a great night with the right mix of industry people in attendance. Ducale Coffee production Manager Brett Lumley was pleased with the turn out at their purpose built function venue in Kings Cross. The building was a disused commercial Laundry that has been converted into a funky space that has already been used for coffee tastings and training, fashion shows and product launches.
