Back in August 2015, a trio of coffee-drinking businessmen from Melbourne created the concept of Pod & Parcel over a shared necessity – access to delicious, high-quality coffee outside of normal barista hours. The gang of Ben Goodman, Elliott Haralambous and Jai Felinski pooled their collective skills in marketing, strategy and networking to create Pod & Parcel, a concept that saw them putting cafe-quality coffee into pods that would break down easily. It turns out the idea had some serious legs, with the brand winning a start-up grant just six months after launching and a recent offer from Red Balloon founder Naomi Simpson on Shark Tank.
The Pod & Parcel model works by connecting the average coffee drinker with specialty coffee in a fast, convenient format. All of the coffee found on Pod & Parcel pods is of the highest standard, hitting at least 80 out of a possible 100 on the specialty coffee grading point scale to qualify. It’s the antithesis of modern mainstream coffee – the consumer can see where it’s come from right down to the farm it came from and how it was transported to our shores. The pods are also totally environmentally friendly, breaking down in just 90 days in commercial compost – so you can sip away without the guilt often associated with disposables.
