Accelerate Your Hospitality Business with Shared Experience and Knowledge

A key benefit of becoming a Coffee Commune Accelerator Member is access to the network’s Knowledge Ecosystem. Modelled on the success of innovation ecosystems that have been evolving since Silicon Valley paved the way, Innovation ecosystems can exist within a company, or across an industry, wherever there is a network of individuals, entities and resources prepared to join forces to generate new ideas, new products, new methods and new systems. The ambition of the Coffee Commune is to unite those forces in a collaboration to support the sustainability of the hospitality industry.

The Pod Knowledge Ecosystem

How does it work?

The Knowledge Ecosystem leverages the skills, experience, and knowledge of our aligned partners and diverse membership base to develop innovative ways that can be shared with our members to reduce costs and develop smarter business solutions. Thinking outside the box creates efficiencies that can’t always be achieved by members on their own, with each initiative designed to make a significant contribution to our member’s bottom line.


Educational Content in our App

In the members only Coffee Commune Connect App, we are building a content library of courses, mini-workshops, training, podcasts, books, templates and other useful tools to help your learn and grow.

We have 4 levels:

  • Igniters (beginners)
  • Builders (intermediate)
  • Optimisers (advanced)
  • Masters

Content is available for the areas of People, Finance & Systems, Coffee Knowledge, Operations and Branding & Marketing – with more content coming each week.

Informal Training

The Knowledge Ecosystem has deliberately thrown out traditional training models. Our focus is on sharing skills and knowledge, not classrooms and certificates. Our training spaces are state-of-the art, practical workspaces designed to impart skills efficiently and use time wisely so people can get back to work with their new skills.

To date, our focus has been on training for the coffee industry, including Barista Training and Roasting Masterclasses. We are  expanding our informal training programs as our members identify their needs.

Get In Touch


A number of workshops are always being planned based on the needs identified by our members. The workshops are developed by experts in their specific fields and available as live, in-person or virtual events.

Be sure to regularly check our events page to discover what workshops are coming up at the Coffee Commune or let us know what you’d like delivered.

Upcoming Workshops


Regular networking events are held with carefully selected themes and speakers. Members are encouraged to attend through discounted rate and exclusive offers.

The Coffee Commune will also be hosting regular Think Tank sessions, where groups of members are invited to take part in a roundtable of ideas. Past topics include discussions on new products or services, technology initiatives, and combatting the shortage of skilled labour.
