Wholesale Showcase: Ada’s Affair

Next in our Wholesale Showcase series off with Tri and Sonny from Ada’s Affair, a charming corner cafe whose goal is to serve delicious food and exciting coffees to the Darlinghurst community. Since they opened in 2021, they’ve served our Pacemaker blend, La Serrania decaf and rotating singles.

Let’s start with the basics: What/who is Ada’s Affair?
We are an efficient neighbourhood cafe serving quality coffee and food to the Darlinghurst community. It’s a tiny space but it gets busy! When we first saw the space, we fell in love with the location immediately and wanted to create a venue that serves the surrounds and St Vincent’s Hospital staff.

What role or place has coffee within your offering/experience? Why is it there?
Coffee has a very important role in Ada’s Affair. Especially in a small space like ours, quality coffee and speedy service is our main priority. This is especially true for the hospital staff (our main clientele) who have limited break times.

How did you first hear about Sample Coffee? What led you to serve it?
We knew about Sample Coffee through our time working in the [Sydney hospitality] industry. Your commitment to coffee quality is second to none—we regard it as Sydney’s best. It was also assuring to know that there are some very good people running the operations.

What do you enjoy or appreciate the most about working with us?
Besides the world-class coffee you provide, having regular discussions with John and Reuben about the coffee offerings has been critical to our success. They are always there when we need help. We appreciate it!
