I recently had the opportunity to visit a cool new business concept in the prosperous rural town of Dubbo, in western NSW. The Fast Lane is a concept designed by Paula Anderson, a mum and entrepreneur who saw the opportunity to fuel the busy commuters with well made espresso coffee and travel snacks.

The Fast Lane has developed over the last five years into a professionally run coffee business that is now looking to expand. Paula purchased a coffee roaster and is now producing fresh coffee for the two drive-throughs and not only does she sell coffee “to go” through to businesses, people can also buy fresh coffee for home.

The competition was as hot as the weather at The Dream Festival Senses Market held on Sunday. Our chief barista Adam Russo had to come up with the his best effort . After a shaky start to the pouring, his entries were judged against some stiff competition.The standard of entries was high which meant unfortunately for Adam,he was unable to come away with the winnings.However the judges also had to pick the best tasting coffee from all the entries.We are proud to announce that Adam produced the best tasting coffee, which to us is more important for our customers anyway. Great work Adam.
