About Us

Its no secret that Melbourne’s cafe culture is among the best in the world and event coffee is historically the forgotten sibling.

Coffee On Cue was founded in 2013 after discovering that when you put amazing coffee into the hands of people at events everything changes. Engagement lifts, people start connecting with one another, the coffee cart is the place where people now want to be - it’s the means for people to connect.

With a foundation built on strong values, we now have a growing team consisting of operations, sales & career baristas spanning Melbourne & Sydney helping to bring connection between people at over 100 events per month.

Our Vision

To be the leaders in the world in event specialty coffee.

Our Purpose

To elevate every event that we are a part of. We approach each interaction as an opportunity to create an experience.

Our Values

We’re family first
The little things count
We must be the duck
We stay hungry
Be authentic, drive connection
Communication is honest & constructive

From the founder

Coffee On Cue Founder Ryan Spaccavento

Australia is famous the world over for roasting & brewing coffee. We’re famous for creating memorable hospitality experiences for locals and tourists—coffee is in our DNA.

I started Coffee On Cue because there was a huge gap between what you could get at a great cafe and the coffee you could get at an event. 

We exist to bridge that gap and create memorable event experiences through good old-fashioned service and of course by serving great coffee. When you work with us you’ll quickly notice that our team all share a genuine love for hospitality and want to make a difference to the day of each person we come into contact with.
