the.kaf 199 Glebe Point Road, Glebe (formerly digi.kaf)
After 21 years on St Johns Rd in Glebe, digi.kaf has moved and is entering a new and very exciting chapter. With our ex-landlord demanding a 70% rent increase we had no other choice other than to move. We came to the simple conclusion - we have a great product, awesome suppliers and a very loyal group of customers. We are not ready to go down just yet!
We are now located a 199 Glebe Point Road Glebe and the food, service and coffee is still the same high quality deliciousness.
When we opened in 1996 we took what we thought was the safe route. We chose a big multinational to supply us with our coffee. 18 months in they dumped us, along with their entire New South Wales café list. So much for the safe route.
Luckily for us it was La Casa Del Caffe, a family run business based in Minto, that purchased that list.
La Casa Del Caffe immediately began supplying us with superior service and advice as well as the freshly roasted coffee beans that have become our signature. We've always had such a wonderful experience with them because they have always let us know that we are their priority.
Indeed it became the stuff of cafe legend several years ago when La Casa Del Caffe showed us just how important we are to them. We place our coffee order on a Wednesday for delivery on a Thursday. One week the decaf was somehow left out of the order. We didn’t notice until Friday and a quick call to La Casa confirmed that they had forgotten to place the decaf in the order.
No major dramas, a few folks would miss out on their decaf over the weekend. Certainly not the end of the world. But later that night my mobile phone rang. It was one of the La Casa family calling from the café doorstep. She had personally brought the decaf across, to ensure no one at digi went without.
It was just a half kilo of decaf, no big deal really but important enough for them to drop everything and drive into the city on a Friday night.
We have won several awards for our coffee over the years and there really is one thing to say. We win those awards because of the great work of dedicated family businesses like La Casa Del Caffe.
We cannot thank them enough for their continuing support and encouragement.
