The past decade has seen the local cafe scene expand at a tremendous pace.
Buddy is the team funding the boom, helping first-time operators get their foot in the door by offering a better solution when buying coffee equipment.
As the newest funding partner of La Marzocco Australia, Buddy will make getting your hands on the latest machinery easier than ever.
“We absolutely love everything La Marzocco do, so this is a dream come true for the crew at Buddy.” Says Buddy founder Will Randles.
“La Marzocco is the first choice for the majority of our customers because they look exceptional in any cafe; they’re recognized within the specialty coffee community as a point of excellence, and they’re pretty much indestructible. What’s not to love?”
Matt Blom, La Marzocco Group Finance Manager, is also keen to see the collaboration succeed. “The team at Buddy are the perfect fit as our newest finance partner; their enthusiasm for coffee and technology go hand in hand with La Marzocco’s. It’s a partnership we’re proud to offer our customers.”
Buddy has provided funding to hundreds of cafes, restaurants and roasters across Australia searching for a more innovative way to pay for the dream coffee setup.
According to Will, “Everyone can – and should – drink the best coffee. But first, you need the right equipment.” That’s where the team at Buddy come in. They’ve created an easy solution for you to get the kit you’ve always wanted without outlaying tens of thousands of dollars in capital.

The Dream kit builder lets you choose from the newest machines, grinders and accessories available through Buddy. ‘It’s been a huge help for our customers, especially those new to the industry. When you are starting out, outlaying capital for machinery is the last thing you need. That outlay can be upwards of $30,000.’
Real people, with honest advice.
“Our industry moves at an incredible pace, and Buddy prides itself on keeping up with it,” says head of sales James Yeomen.
“We approve applications in 5 minutes and can pay invoices in one hour if needed. If you’ve got a Driver’s licence, Medicare Card and ABN, you can get your coffee equipment the same day as you apply.” When you sign up with Buddy, you pay small weekly rental payments and move that cost from a capital expense to an operational expense.
Repayments are 100% tax-deductible. And they never touch your balance sheet, so they won’t affect your ability to borrow in the future.
** That means you have more money for the important things, like top-shelf beans and your AC bill in summer. Because hey, that’s what buddies are for.
