How we started

Sean Edwards has been heavily involved in the cafe and coffee industry for over 25 years having owned numerous cafes and coffee roasting businesses. Sean created events like Cafe Biz and The Golden Bean, designing educational streams within the coffee/cafe sector. His company is global and he consults to industry via offices in Australia, North America and China. Cafe Culture International is the mothership media company behind the events, competitions and industry consulting.

Sean believes Cafe Culture International as a media business has set the foundation for the smart coffee and cafe culture we have today by having the first dedicated national cafe publication which helped spread the growth of a quality cafe food and beverage model. The rest of the world still looks to Australia for innovation and Cafe Culture is still currently involved behind the scenes with the pioneers of change.

Sean treats his passion for the industry like a hobby and every work day for him is full of exciting discovery and a chance to network with the people who make our industry move forward.

Cafe Culture Digital constantly adapts to provide contemporary and trendy content and design, ensuring a loyal readership and long-term success. While we serve as the go-to platform for the cafe industry, our online presence is just the beginning.
