Cafe People – Mark Beattie

Café Culture has been working with Mark and Alana Beattie for over five years and has proudly watched the growth of their business and the way they have aligned themselves within the coffee industry. It is always nice to listen to Mark’s ideas and opinions on this fast moving industry, as he has come from a corporate background. It is obvious that he is a smart operator with well thought out plans and a vision for the future.
Mark has a degree in business and marketing, followed by 9 years’ experience with Nestle in various divisions in both Sydney and Melbourne. In his role at Nestle he primarily dealt with Woolworths and Metcash in a variety of national sales roles.

Mark’s passion for coffee equipment and the fast growing capsule market ensures his customers’ coffee industry dreams are realised.

Mark, along with his wife, Alana Beattie, own and manage Coffee Roasters Australia and Capsule Pack Pty Ltd on the Gold Coast. After leaving his successful corporate career, Mark gained experience in a franchise system before taking over Coffee Roasters Australia. In 2013, Mark and Alana founded Capsule Pack Pty Ltd, specialising in contract coffee capsule packing for Australian roasters. Having experience with coffee at both a corporate and small business level allows Mark to provide valuable assistance and advice to coffee companies. Mark’s passion for coffee equipment and the fast growing capsule market ensures his customers’ coffee industry dreams are realised.
Mark is a great networker and has helped grow the Australian coffee roaster scene, and he has also been a great supporter of the Golden Bean Roasters Awards. In the past, for a new roaster to get information was very hard, and Mark saw this liability and took it to hand to help educate the market and simplify the process of coffee roasting, using tailored training and researching installation legislation nationally.
We are proud of being associated with Mark and Alana and their team and look forward to our ongoing business and personal relationships.
