Our story began in 2010 with a simple thought; milk bottles belong on the breakfast table at home – not in a busy cafe. So we decided to do something about it. After all, how hard could it be?
Fast forward to 2020, we have been fortunate to work with some fabulous people in the hospitality industry and have more than a thousand Jugglers in cafes and restaurants. It’s fantastic to see our simple thought making an impact. Our like-minded tribe of ethical, sustainability-focused customers have made a massive contribution to the #waronwasteAU by reducing the consumption of 2L plastic milk bottles by over 18,000,000 units.
Check out these fabulous venues that have contributed.
Location/Venue: Bella Vista Business Park, Sydney
Number of bottles saved: Over 17,000
“All seats face the coffee workstation in the centre of our cafe, so having equipment that leaves the focus on coffee was really important to us. The Juggler was a great option, providing out-of-sight milk storage, as well as the freeing up our baristas to work their magic.”
Location/Venue: World Square, Sydney
Number of bottles saved: Over 80,000
“The Juggler has been a dream product for us over the last 5 years. On the few occasions I have helped out on coffee bars that still use bottles, it’s quite weird after being spoilt with such a great system.”
Edition Coffee Roasters
Location/Venue: Darlinghurst and Haymarket
Number of bottles saved: 44,000
“The Juggler fits like a glove with the look and feel of our stores. The seamless interaction by staff with the machine, means less time looking around for bottles and equipment and more eye contact and banter with the customer. Not only do we have less plastic waste, but we literally have no milk wastage as the system allows us to dose exactly what is needed.”
University of Sydney
Location/Venue: 5 venues across the campus including the Courtyard Restaurant and Bar
Number of bottles saved: 147,500
“The Juggler has completely transformed our daily operations across 5 venues on USYD Campus and enables us to not only meet our customers’ needs but also deliver on our objective of a more sustainable campus. The Juggler system is a must in any new café build. We have been a Juggler customer for over 6 years are rarely had any service issues – it’s truly built to last.”

What are the benefits of The Juggler?
What are the environmental benefits of using The Juggler?
The major environmental benefit of using The Juggler is waste reduction. Customers report they’re producing up to 80% less plastic waste using The Juggler, as bottles are replaced by 10 litre bladders. The precise volumetric dosing dramatically reduces milk wastage in a cafe environment; for every 1Lt of milk processed, 1Kg of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) is generated.
What are the economic benefits of using The Juggler?
The Juggler improves the workflow and speed of service allowing more coffees to be produced and sold during peak service times. Overall operational cost reductions can also be achieved through improved milk yields and reduced packing waste collection.
How does The Juggler benefit organisations of different scales?
We find different businesses are sometimes focussed on achieving different outcomes. For large-scale, high-volume organisations, The Juggler’s increased productivity and milk wastage reduction provides the commercial solution they are looking for. With smaller-scale businesses, it may be the quality control element, as well as achieving improvements around sustainability – through reduced plastics consumption – that are the objectives.
