Back in 2013, Charlie Smyth (owner and founder of Cracking Coffee) was horrified to discover that the coffee machine he gave his Dad as a present was languishing, unused and unloved, in a kitchen cupboard.
When he asked his Dad why he wasn’t using it, his Dad told him simply that he couldn’t seem to make a decent coffee with it.
So, Charlie showed his Dad how to use it properly. Within 10 minutes, his Dad was off! The coffee machine was (and still is) put to daily use, and all it took was a few minutes of guidance on how to get the best out of it!
This got Charlie thinking: how many other people have fantastic coffee machines at home, but have stopped using them simply because they don’t really know how to?
The solution was simple.
The general public needed a reliable information source – along with outstanding products – to make the most of their home brewed coffee experience. At the time, there was no such place, so, Charlie decided to create it.
Since then, Cracking Coffee has grown in size and continues to dedicate every day to helping coffee lovers discover their perfect pairing when it comes to coffee equipment. We’re passionate about what we do and are always here to help, just ask!
