    Café Series - Ovolo Hotel and Lona Misa

    Café Series - Ovolo Hotel and Lona Misa

    We are so excited to be the coffee partner for the Ovolo Hotel South Yarra and Lona Misa restaurant. We spoke to Jaqui Rosenstengel the Food & Beverage General Manager to learn more about how the new venue and how the brand aligns with St Remio.

    What can guests expect when they visit?

    A fun & unique dining experience, great service, fabulous vibes.

    Ovolo South Yarra blends past, present and future. The hotel is a place where retro chic and pop art collide. Taking its design cues from the days of disco, rock gods and retro glamour. The vibe is bold, creative, and unpredictable. All mods, zero cons: Ovolo South Yarra brings a fresh injection of energy into Melbourne’s -hottest cultural destination.

    Lona Misa is a rebellious renaissance from root to stem. Enter a timeless scene with Latin loved persuasions to revel amongst friends, to siesta, or simply sit and pass the time. By day stop by for a casual bite, coffee, or fresh juice in the café. By night stay for something a little more, a lively Latin bar and dining experience boasting a heavily vegan menu with vegetarian options.

    What made you choose St Remio Coffee?

    Great quality coffee & broad range of products. Ethically sourced coffee beans & a company that celebrates the people behind their great product.

    Is sustainability important to you?

    Yes. Sustainability helps us to improve the quality of our lives and the diversity of life in our ecosystem. We should practice sustainable living and encourage others to do the same as well. 

     What is your go-to coffee and how many do you drink a day?

    Long Black – about 3 a day 😊

    What is the restaurants signature dish(s)?

    I can recommend all dishes on the menu! But our most popular ones are definitely the 

    • Tamales Chicken Tomatillo
    • Roasted Pedron & Manchego Croquettes
    • Peri-Peri Cauliflower
    • Oyster Mushroom Ceviche

    UTZ logo is changing to the new Rainforest Alliance logo. Time to follow the frog!

    UTZ logo is changing to the new Rainforest Alliance logo. Time to follow the frog!

    As you will have seen, last year we started our relationship with UTZ, ensuring that we sourced all our coffee from UTZ certified farms, providing greater traceability again to the consumer. Our packaging changed to show the UTZ logo, giving confidence to the consumer that the coffee was sustainably sourced and that we as a business ensured we paid a fair price to coffee growers.

    In 2018 the Rainforest Alliance and UTZ joined forces to build an alliance to create a better future for people and nature by making responsible business the new normal. That’s why you will see the new Rainforest Alliance certification seal on our products. Just like the UTZ label, the Rainforest Alliance seal stands for farmers and companies working towards a world where people and nature thrive in harmony. It represents the next step in sustainability and is a signal that St Remio is committed to never stop getting better at what we do. We want to be transparent about our progress and share the responsibility with farmers and others in the supply chain to reach this mission.

    Did you know the Rainforest Alliance seal features a frog for an important reason? As one of nature's super indicator species, the presence of the frog is a positive sign that a natural ecosystem is balanced and thriving. When we no longer see the frog, we know that the environment is compromised and other species within that ecosystem will soon suffer if we don’t do something urgently. That’s why we ask you to follow the frog. By buying St Remio Coffee with the frog seal you help contribute to better farming practices, fight against the climate crisis, conserve our forests, protect the human rights of farmers and workers, and improve their livelihoods.

    You will start to shortly see some of our packaging transitioning to the new Rainforest Logo and overtime our whole range will feature the new logo allowing you to #followthefrog and again be assured you are purchasing sustainable coffee. We are committed to sustainable coffee and we are committed to supporting farmers. That is the St Remio difference.
