Our Story

Numero Uno 
... this is not about 
us being number one, but about every individual along the coffee supply chain being valued and put first. 

 

We are a specialty coffee roaster who helps purpose-driven individuals build a local community founded on great coffee. We continually seek coffees that are ethically and sustainably grown. We develop relationships with, and buy directly from, origin small-holder coffee growers and cooperatives. 

The story of who we are is woven by the people who have partnered with us over the last 18 years. We help hundreds of coffee lovers realise their dream of opening and operating a coffee business. These are a few of their personal stories:
