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.

My 2 15yo just did the Intro to Espresso. They loved it and are looking forward to do the Advanced or Latte Art very soon. Definetly recommend The training thru Clandestino

A great coverage of the essentials and advanced issues for good espresso making. Techniques for tamping, milk preparation , grinding and many more issues were expertly covered. Even though I have a few years experience in the area I found this course worthwhile to review my techniques and revisit the new approaches to consistent barista delivery. It was also beneficial to discuss many details with a professional barista. I’ll be looking for other courses to develop my skills.
