Driving the idea was Jade Anderson, the creator of Wawa Chocolatier.

The new bar marks the seventh in Wawa’s range and Ms Anderson’s first official collaboration.

Seven Seeds shared their coffee expertise — and loads of beans — with Ms Anderson, and the results are finally in.

The Wawa x Seven Seed collaboration bar is being launched this weekend at Melbourne’s Finders Keepers Market.

Buffy Gorrilla followed the collaboration from start to finish, and revealed her own small part in the enterprise.
