The Back Story
Who's Behind Bamboo Cocos
Hello and thank you so much for stopping by!
My name's Crystal, and I am the creator behind my humble business, Bamboo Cocos!
I'm an easy going, bubbly, nature frothing Aussie girl who loves getting messy and creative!
For the better part of the last decade I have worked as a cook in various restaurants and cafes. The hospitality life was taking it's toll on me, both physically and mentally - and I had been wanting out for some time. Weekends were some what non-existent, long days were guaranteed and don't even get me started on the Christmas holidays - it wasn't the life I wanted to lead. I wanted to change my career path, make a genuine impact and create a life I truly loved every aspect of...but I had no idea how. Then the pandemic hit.
Due to pandemic restrictions, I lost my job...on my birthday - happy birthday to me! My hand was forced to take action. I sold my motorbike and invested every last cent I had into cooking up a business from home instead.
And....Bamboo Cocos was born.
My products, developed over time. I started by creating hand poured soy candles - quickly to realize that I had zero interest in making candles. I moved onto creating beautiful uniquely Australian jewellery...but again, the passion wasn't fully there...
I felt lost and confused with the direction of where my business was going. I was still getting sales, but I was back in a position where I wasn't loving my job.
Then something magical happened. I attended a pottery class.
It was my huge "Ah Ha!" moment and I was addicted. Why was I trialing things I 'thought' I would enjoy creating, when I could solely focus on the two things I am utterly and wholeheartedly passionate about!
Gourmet tea and ceramics. Boom!!
So now, moving forward in Bamboo Cocos 2.0, I will be creating beautifully handcrafted ceramics for all of your tea needs and gourmet hand blended tea to accompany your one of a kind ceramic pieces. I hope you love them all as much as I love them too!
I've always been a dream chaser. I've always been extremely passionate about unleashing my creativity. And I've been an absolute tea fiend for as long as I can remember. I've never been afraid to tackle a challenge and running, nurturing and growing Bamboo Cocos has been the most rewarding challenge in my life.
So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your support and for your business. If it weren't for my wonderful customers and stockists, I wouldn't be able to chase my dreams and make a genuine impact as I am today.
Please feel free to connect with me any time, I am always eager to make connections with my wonderful community.
Have a beautiful day and happy sipping.
