Currently the machine operates on Friday mornings. Students have learned the basics of how to use the machine and a few students are undertaking a barista course to further enhance their coffee making skills. Year 7 to 10 students can purchase hot chocolates and seniors and staff can order coffee.
Students are responsible for keeping business records, any cost and purchase transactions, stock take and staff rosters as well as the day to day running of the business.
All profits are used to repay the loan and purchase more stock for the machine.
The Bean Machine also operates on special events, including Parent Teacher nights, Awards nights and other special days. Students often make combination deals with raisin toast or toasted cheese sandwiches. Our coffees are the best value in the area.
