Wide Open Road began roasting coffee in 2009. The founders Hootan Heydari and Jono Hill had previously opened the cafe ‘A Minor Place’ together and were looking to enter into the world of roasting for their next venture. Since then, Wide Open Road has been slowly growing and now consists of a small but dedicated team of coffee professionals, a bookkeeper, and a designer. Their team includes the Director of Coffee Dylan Hewitt, the Head Roaster Jack Bradshaw, Rinn Hubbard Queen of Operations and Josh Bedford Dispatch Guru. The team at Wide Open Road have managed to stay true to their roots by being a completely hands on independent coffee roastery and loving every second of it but also steering away from becoming a corporate business. ‘Maybe it’s because we played in punk bands for too long, but the pleasures of working with like minded people and offering a product…Continue Reading

Contraband Coffee Traders began with Chris Legge’s fascination with coffee. He became completely enchanted with the roasting process after being exposed to it through helping set up other espresso bars and coffee roasteries in Melbourne. Being able to create and highlight particular characteristics from different coffees inspired Chris to start his own coffee roasting business where he could experiment with unique coffees from across the globe to bring their distinctive flavours to cafe’s all over Melbourne. ‘Contraband began as a passion project in my garage at home, roasting between a 250g domestic roaster and a 10kg Has Garanti which was running off a barbecue gas bottle!’ In 2014 Chris and his wife Jess decided it was the right time to move into a slightly more legitimate spot so they founded Newtown Specialty Coffee & Roastery in Fitzroy, Melbourne and began roasting in the back room of the cafe. The most…Continue Reading

Atomica Coffee began when Toli Avgerinos moved back to Melbourne after a stint of making coffee in Santorini. Toli’s first café was at the Parahan market in 1991. After noticing a lack of lack of flavour and depth in the beans, he began to experiment with his own roasts. Shortly after Atomica Coffee was born. In a small café in Brunswick street, Fitzroy, Toli began importing green beans and roasting on site. ‘You’ve got to imagine a small cafe with smoke pouring out the door, customers not really knowing what was going on and then discovering a great little place to come and not only have coffee but smell coffee and see it being roasted.’ The head roaster at Atomic is Matteo Secci and he definitely has his work cut out for him. ‘Atomica is unique in we ALWAYS, without exception; roast each single origin bean and then post-blends. Because…Continue Reading

The founder of Niccolo, Nicholas Bolton, once had a crazy idea about coffee. Ever since, Davide Drummond has been bringing it to life, however, Davide Drummond couldn’t possibly do this alone. So, he works in a team with Managing Director Steve Rowley (of Frank Body, Left Field, Tall Timber and Coin Laundry fame), Bertie Sulpizi the head roaster, Dylan Alexander, the project manager and of course, Niccolo’s baristas, technicians and all sorts of other helping hands. In 2008 the Niccolo team set out to create a modern coffee that captured both the attention of the third wave movement, but also remained traditional enough to where it still tastes like coffee. ‘It sounds obvious, or even cliché, however at that time the coffee movement was progressing rapidly towards highly acidic alternative profiles that, in our opinion, lost the essence of the morning coffee. Enter Niccolo.’ ‘We see ourselves occupying the space in…Continue Reading

In 2014 Benjamin Stronach and Natalie Kirwan opened the doors of The Queensberry Pour House in Melbourne after stumbling upon the location on a early morning bike ride through Carlton.This is where our featured roaster this week, Tin Man Coffee Roasters, came to life joining the fast pace coffee community ingrained in Melbourne’s culture. The Head roasters Benjamin Stronach, Natalie Kirwan and Hyunsuk Ko stand by being unique. “We believe every cup of coffee is a snowflake and should be celebrated for its uniqueness” and after 15 years of working with coffee Ben now simply hopes “to surprise and delight people with the coffee.” At Tin Man Coffee Roasters they prefer to steer away from industry standards and instead focus on the ever-changing flavour and lifecycle of coffee. “We change the tasting notes and the way we roast and brew our coffees everyday – it’s an organic product. It’s alive.…Continue Reading

Join the Beanhunter Coffee Club and drink amazing coffee, every time. Started by husband and wife team, David Makin and Zoe Delany, Axil Coffee Roasters have covered some good ground in establishing themselves as one of Melbourne’s specialty coffee institutions.
