About?

We have built our foundation on working alongside people who believe in treating coffee with care and appreciation. From humble beginnings – journeying to Sumatra and wanting to change the perception of coffee – we find ourselves today being able to work closely with some of the most forward-thinking minds in the industry.

Thanks to our in-house Q Grader, we pride ourselves on being able to source and provide high quality, speciality grade coffees that are roasted with care and attention. Ultimately we try to think of coffee in terms of it being a fruit – a very sweet one, at that. We want our roasts to convey that sweetness in the coffee that you drink.

 

Ethical / environmental claims

We have a ?milkround? delivery system for local wholesale accounts, where coffee is delivered in reusable tubs to reduce our use of single-use plastics. We adopt a ?reduce, reuse, recycle? approach at our roastery whenever possible, reusing packaging that would otherwise go to waste.
