A new coffee delivery service in Sydney’s south-east is set to begin delivering in the state’s capital by the end of 2018.
The company, Coffee Delivery Australia, has been approached by coffee industry representatives who are eager to work with the firm to expand into the capital city.
The new company has also been approached about launching a coffee delivery business in the Gold Coast.
Coffee Delivery Australia has been contacted by the coffee industry about expanding into the Gold Country.

The company is looking for a team of 30 people who can operate out of a warehouse space in a business park in Sydney.
In addition to the space, the company also wants to grow the workforce, to around 40 people, and will be looking to hire a manager for the first three months of the year.
“We’ve got a lot of different things we’d like to do with this, but that’s the most exciting part about it,” said Coffee Delivery CEO Andrew Pang, who will start in January and move to a new facility in September.
Mr Pang said the company had been approached to work in Sydney for the past six months, but could not make any final decisions until he had finalised his business plan.
He said he was looking for an experienced coffee buyer, but was not looking to buy coffee from the farmers.
There are currently around 1,500 farmers in Sydney, but Mr Pang believes the growth in coffee farming could be up to 300 per cent.
A coffee company would be able to provide a range of services for farmers, such as delivery, and the company would not be looking for direct-to-consumer delivery, which is often associated with coffee chains.
“We don’t want to be a coffee chain, we’re not going to be coffee shops.
We want to make sure we can deliver to people in the same way as other companies do,” he said.
If the company were to grow its workforce to 40, it would be the second-largest coffee company in Australia after Starbucks.
However, Mr Pampi said he believed the coffee sector would need to expand in the coming years, as demand for the commodity would outstrip supply.
“There’s not enough coffee right now, so there needs to be some growth,” he told ABC Radio Sydney.
“It’s just going to need to happen organically, and that’s what we’re going to try and do with Coffee Delivery.”
Mr Pampo said his coffee company was seeking to expand beyond Sydney’s CBD to other parts of the state, as well as extending its reach across the country.
