We are a small coffee roasting business born in Byron Bay NSW Australia.
We began roasting coffee back in 2009, in a small shop on Marvell Street in the heart of Byron Bay. Those early days were full of experimentation and learning, and running a retail store and coffee roaster saw us quickly outgrow the space we were in. We moved to the Byron industrial area and decided to put all our focus and energy into roasting amazing coffee. 10 years on the team is Joe, Marc, Fergus, Shota, Rei, Nico and Linda, a strong and determined bunch of legends that love what they do.
We believe that coffee should have minimal intervention by not only the roaster but by the farmer during growing and processing. We select and roast coffees that are balanced, naturally sweet and free of defects. This philosophy gives us no choice but to buy the best quality coffee we can. On a community level, we try where possible to support businesses that operate with the intent to benefit their local community and environment, as a company we also operate with a similar mindset. You can find a map of where to drink our coffee here.
We know what we like and focus on purchasing coffees from Central and South America, West Africa and support a local producer called Friday Hut Coffee, located right here in Byron Bay.
Our core coffee supplier is Caravela Coffee, they are all well known for their ethics, focus on quality and trade transparency. Caravela coffee is a certified B-Corp and has won “Best in the World” on numerous occasions which rewards them for their impact on their workers, community, customers and environment. We also work with Melbourne Coffee Merchants, Cafe Imports, Condesa Co-Lab and Nordic Approach.
As a growing company we are conscious of our impact on the environment, we try our hardest to make as little impact as possible. Our roaster is a Loring Smart Roast designed to be extremely efficient and low emission. Almost half our orders are hand delivered by us in reusable buckets. This saves about 250,000 coffee bags a year going into landfill. Our retail coffee bags are now 100% recyclable and we also make our shipping satchels from the materials our green coffee is stored in.
Aside from roasting and delivering awesome coffee, we love our customers and supporting them in a way that builds confidence and develops their skills and knowledge about coffee.
