We love coffee, we also love people who love coffee.

We are a coffee bean supplier and Noosa’s first specialty roaster. Since our beginning, we have been dedicated to producing the finest quality coffee and we’re certainly not going to slow down.

Living by the motto “flavour is paramount”, we are constantly searching and scouting coffee beans from farms all over the world. With every cup of coffee brewed; we want each moment to be a good one. Come join us on a flavour journey and further develop your taste buds so that you enjoy each cup of coffee a bit more.

The coffee courses take place in our learning facility that we lovingly call The Cube. 

It's located right next to our Roastery and our HQ, so you’ll see where the action happens (and might even get lucky and get a quick tour of the facilities). With coffee it takes practise and time. Working hard to memorise facts is great but being able to translate why that matters, why that’s good, why that makes this taste unique or special – that’s what matters.

We designed our coffee courses the same way as we train our wholesale clients - where consistency is key and attention to detail makes all the difference.

We invite you behind the scenes to learn our craft.

A great course with a lot of great info!! I new respect for those baristas that can’t consistently make good coffee. Kai was very knowledgeable and really loves the process of coffee which made the course a level above what my expectations were. Thanks Kai, really enjoyed it and have started on my coffee making journey!
