About Us

Espresso Train is an initiative of the Nundah Community Enterprises Cooperative (NCEC). Our motto "We don't employ people to cater; we cater so we can employ people" encapsulates our misison of providing meanigful employment for people with a disability. Our cafe is managed by Kirsty Balmer who has decades of experience in hospitality including a stint in London where she helped restaurants and café’s become more sustainable (environmentally, socially and economically). We are a social enterprise and receive no ongoing funding so we rely upon our great food and a consistently high standard of service to survive and thrive!
