Ms Davis opened Hullabaloo Coffee Express on Caloundra Road in mid-September, having owned two stores previously in Karratha and Dampier.
Originally a counsellor, she said she joined the Australia film set because she thought making coffee would be a ‘no-brainer’ job, but instead found she learnt plenty, including how to make Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman’s favourite coffees.
‘I had to upskill myself, that was a really good experience for me,’ she said.
‘Hugh used to like his black coffees, Nicole would have a macchiato.’
The Swan Valley resident said she learnt about bone-dry cinos ” made with a different kind of milk and using a different technique to steam the milk ” from the stars.
She said she also learnt how to create various flavours of latte, such as Snickers, Bounty and Mars Bar, which she offers customers at the Clarkson caf�.
‘It is a bit like mixing cocktails,’ she said. ‘You can have those cold as well, we do a lot of different flavoured frappes.’
Also a barista trainer, Ms Davis said she was teaching her own staff, believing the more knowledge they had, the better they could do their job.
‘I’m trying to start a coffee culture up here,’ she said.
‘People are more and more coming because of the reputation for good coffee.’
