Ethically traded, small batch coffee.
We are a small batch roaster of traceable coffees based in Adelaide, South Australia.
To us 'traceable' designates two key things - quality and provenance; we only roast coffees of the highest quality and coffees that are traded in a transparent and sustainable manner. We feel as the roaster it is our role to firstly - roast only to preserve and highlight the individual qualities inherent in each coffee due to the meticulous work of the producers, and secondly - to make sure you know who those producers are and where your coffee came from.
We believe in an economically sustainable supply chain, wherin everybody from the consumer to the farmer is empowered. To that end we only roast coffees that are sourced in an ethical, transparent and responsible manner. We go to lengths to ensure all players in the supply chain are remunerated fairly and have access to the same knowledge - most pertinently those in producing countries, who are currently benefiting the least from trade and simultaneously bearing the most risk.
Together we can change that.
Many thanks for this delicious, perfectly balanced and perfectly roasted Seasonal Blend delivered super fast and with lovely, thoughtful notes and cards explaining the origins of my coffee. These extra touches are also highly appreciated... I'm your loyal fan forever. Thank you kindly!
One of the best washed Ethiopians I've ever tasted as an espresso... Bright, juicy, stone fruit bombs that wishes there was no such thing as a daily caffeine limit!

The majority of coffee consumed today is traded in a way designed to maximise the profits of roasters and cafes, at the expense of the consumer’s drinking experience and the economic sustainability of coffee farmers in producing countries. We do things differently. We, along with our sourcing and cafe partners, are committed to purchasing strictly the highest quality coffees we can find - with farmers receiving significant premiums for their work - so that you can enjoy a truly unique and meaningful coffee drinking experience.
We would like to acknowledge this land that we meet, work and live on today as the traditional lands for the Kaurna people and we respect their spiritual relationship with their country. We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the greater Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today. We also extend that respect to other Aboriginal Language Groups and other First Nations.
