Meet Hamish McKinstry, the newly appointed National Sales Manager for Dalla Corte Australia. Hamish has nearly eight years of experience working in the beverage industry, switching from Tea to Specialty Coffee about five years ago.
Here’s what he has to say about working for Dalla Corte:
“The unique technology and features of the Dalla Corte range, many of which are both an industry first and of great value, [are key,] especially to the advanced Australian market where there is a heavy focus on barista control, performance visibility and of course sustainability,” Hamish says.
“In an industry dominated by two or three key brands that compete predominantly on price and aesthetic, there is a huge opportunity for new technology and we’re confident that Dalla Corte is the brand that will revolutionise the market here,”
“Not many coffee machines currently available can compete in these same areas, while still being able to keep up with high volumes and design trends in the same way Dalla Corte does. Once the leading specialty roasters understand the various benefits and attributes of the Dalla Corte range, we anticipate a huge uplift in demand here in Australia, as it has been proven in the specialty markets across Europe, Asia, and the United States.” He continued.
“The specialty coffee industry here in Australia is admired on a global scale, and regularly used as a reference point by the large multinational roasters and coffee brands for both its prevalence in the food and beverage industry and it’s discerning, educated market,”
“Dalla Corte continues to tweak and develop products with the end-user front of mind, improving cup to cup quality, providing operational efficiency and of course reliability. It’s the demand for exceptional coffee that brings roasters, equipment manufacturers and hospitality operators together in this pursuit for the highest standard of coffee, that sets this industry apart in the Food & Beverage scene and makes it a dynamic and exciting world to be a part of.”
“I think that although the coffee industry here in Australia is world class, many hospitality operators still struggle to understand the complexities involved with delivering exceptional coffee that is consistent every day, in every cup,” Hamish says.
“Not only is the grade of bean, roast profile, coffee machine model and barista skill set highly important, but there are many other factors and technologies that can improve workflow and quality control, and the Dalla Corte range is a great place to start.”
