We’re the reserved, clever creators of coffee. We’re both old fashioned and forward thinking about roasting. We rely on people, not just computers, to oversee the roasting style for each blend. And we’re purposefully and proudly an independent coffee roaster, supplying cafes, homes and offices all across New Zealand.
Alongside our Café, Workshop and Showroom at 164 Khyber Pass Road, Auckland, you’ll find our Roastery. And it’s not just for show. We roast hundreds of kilos of fresh coffee here daily before it makes its way briskly to a coffee machine near you and is turned into a fresh cup of liquid gold.
We roast on a big bright canary yellow Diedrich. You can’t miss her. As an observant, quick-witted 7-year old once said, she could be related to the Transformer Bumblebee. Look it up. The kid was spot on.
For us roasting coffee beans is a scientific and an artistic endeavor right from sourcing quality Arabica beans. Before committing to umpteen stacks of green coffee beans to then roast, the coffee bean selection process includes coffee cupping or tasting. To source quality, sustainable coffee beans required for our intended blends and their specific profiles, our Head Honcho Roaster Hayden is cupping nigh weekly. And yes we can trace the beans back to the farm and farmer. That’s a given.
We’re tad obsessive about roasting coffee. We could go on. But we don’t need to wear you down with the details. At the end of the day, we roast good fresh coffee daily. We’ve been roasting coffee for a good while now and are darn good at it. So we’ll roast, you relax. Over a coffee. Of course.
