United Baristas has launched its new service to buy and sell everything and anything coffee related to help businesses adapt and build for the future…

During the lockdown over 2020, United Baristas has been hard at work to create its biggest service build so far. To underline a positive aspect of 2020 found throughout hospitality, it has been a year of learning, transition and innovation. 

Now, as baristas and coffee businesses prepare for the future they need to sell equipment and premises that no longer fit their strategic objectives – while others will need to buy these same items to fulfil their goals. As such, Tim Ridley and the team are introducing the United Baristas Market. This is a new version of its popular Marketplace service which makes it possible for people in the industry at all levels to buy and sell with ease.

“When thinking about updating Marketplace,” says United Baristas founder Tim Ridley, “it become apparent that our favourite markets around the world are diverse, eclectic and open to new ideas. It is the market traders’ understanding of their customers’ needs, their energy and their commitment to trying new items that makes markets so dynamic and exciting.

“The new United Baristas Market adds new categories and features to make it even better. As well as enabling the sale of used coffee equipment, it allows baristas and businesses to buy and sell anything, including businesses, merchandise, pre-mix cocktails, the list is endless! This means companies can more readily launch new products and baristas can take the opportunity to develop home-based businesses. I am really excited to see how the coffee community use United Baristas Market.”

New features of the Market

• improved search for espresso machines and grinders
• new categories, including coffee business and leases
• more powerful listings to even better showcase items
• support for multiple currencies
• Paylax escrow to allow buyers and sellers to transact securely

Markets are at the heart of many communities, including the coffee industry. The United Baristas team is excited to see what the coffee community will buy and sell on United Baristas Market in the year ahead, and how it will support the coffee community through the challenges with covid-19.
