The best coffee requires the best beans. Researching and visiting coffee farms is critical when sourcing green beans. We source our coffees from farms that produce outstanding crops and adopt ethical practices, farms that value their community and are committed to the ongoing improvement and sustainability of their crops. Ultimately, this means we develop long-lasting relationships, so most of our beans come from farms, co-ops and milling stations where we have a direct relationship with the farmer, and an understanding of each other’s needs.
Our cupping panel is comprised of some of the industry’s most refined palates, including Q graders and international judges. They assess every delivery of green beans on arrival, every blend we create, and every roast we complete, to ensure each batch is true to its sources and will exceed the expectations of our customers.
Our cupping room in Manly Vale has been built to SCAA standards, and we run regular public cupping sessions to showcase our outstanding coffees.
Our master roasters leave nothing to chance. They’ve spent years perfecting their art and developing the ideal roast profiles for each of our blends. The perfect balance of body, sweetness and acidity all comes down to a split second of intuition and hard-won experience, so they carefully monitor and tweak each and every batch, ensuring every coffee bag is just as outstanding as the last.
Our primary roasting facility is in Manly Vale, NSW. It features a state-of-the-art Brambati roaster with the ability to manage roast profiles, hour after hour, day after day. We also operate additional micro roasteries in Canberra and Brisbane to support local markets.
Your enjoyment of coffee comes from its balance of acidity, sweetness, body and length. But ‘the perfect cup’ is a subjective thing, changing from one person to the next. That’s why we offer a diverse range of crafted blends and single origins, each showcasing a different expression of coffee’s natural quality and character.
We invest way too much time, money and energy into sourcing, blending and roasting our coffees to see it all undone by poor packaging and storage. The complex joy of the coffee experience relies on preserving its freshness. That’s why we’ve developed a strict inert packing and storing process that ensures our coffees retain their ideal freshness and flavours, so they’re always delivered to you at their absolute best.
