We all know how much you love Presto. He’s a big ball of energy who is always keen for a laugh and a beer or 2, which always makes for a great conversation about the Rabbitohs’ struggles in 2022 or how the price of a schooner has gone up in the past year. You’re always in good hands when Presto is around and what better way to pay homage to one of the men that built Three Pence from the ground up than taking you through a ‘Day In The Life Of Presto’.

It’s 5am and Presto is up and at em’ at Fitness First Sylvania for a quick session, trying to always build the much important muscle needed for his work at Three Pence HQ. If he’s feeling a little bit extra, then you may see Presto going for a 5km run before heading straight to the warehouse. With a coffee in hand, a few laughs and more jokes than ever before, Presto starts his working day.

From roasting the coffee beans to compiling orders, there’s not much the man can’t do! Every day is different for Presto but his typical mornings can consist of roasting coffee to perfection and quality control, ensuring that the Three Pence beans are up to standard. Quality control is so important to the Three Pence team and the process is as the name suggests, maintaining both quality and consistency to make sure each batch that is roasted meets the established quality standards. Each Three Pence customer expects the same quality from each bag of coffee they receive and removing any margin for error throughout the process is at the top of Presto’s list.

If you ever see the Three Pence van drive past, you can be sure it’s Presto behind the wheel. Maintaining a close relationship with their cafe clients is paramount to him. So each delivery means a good yarn with whoever is behind the counter and if the cafe is flat chat, you will find Presto lending a hand behind the coffee machine. 

By midday, you already know Presto is onto his third or fourth coffee of the day and it’s time for lunch. Presto’s lunch is ready to go every morning and the leftovers from dinner is always his for the taking. Each time Presto and the boys spend their afternoons together, it’s banter galore! And there’s no better place to do so than their local favourite and ol’ reliable Prince Hotel. Friday afternoon beers with his nearest and dearest work mates is what makes Presto tick and he is always looking forward to the end of week celebrations.
