Welcome to Grow &

Welcome to Grow & Grind!

As well as great coffee, our van provides on-the-job training and employment for people who need a hand up. Every cent of profit from your coffee purchase flows back to the Grow & Grind training program, providing barista training to people experiencing the impacts of homelessness and isolation.


Why Grow & Grind?

55 Central provides accommodation and support services to more than 250 people every year. 85% of the people we assist are unemployed. We believe everyone deserves an opportunity to connect in and work towards change.

Developing skills, confidence and self-esteem supports people to break cycles of unemployment and disadvantage. Grow & Grind will change 30 lives over the next three years by offering people who need a hand up the tailored training and support they need to succeed.

Grow & Grind uses only Karvan coffee beans supplied by Leaf Bean Machine.
