Clandestino Roasters

Vendor since 2015

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

At Clandestino Roasters our passion (some would say obsession) is coffee. We roast our own beans and supply many amazing cafes with our meticulously crafted coffee. We train in modern contemporary coffee making to suit our style of roasting, this is also know as Third Wave Coffee. 

Coffee is now a destination product, people choose with their pallet and are willing to travel. A cafe without great coffee is a cafe without love. As craft roasters we are now unlocking nuances of coffee we have never tasted or achieved before. Never has the choice of coffee bean and extraction parameters been so important for a cafe to gain the upper hand over their competitor. 

We have a winning formula, and we are willing to share it with you. 

Our training courses are designed the same way as we train our wholesale clients. Our methods have been tried and tested with individuals from the beginner home coffee maker through to the professional barista.  Our attention to detail is second to none and our emphasis on consistency will ensure the results are achieved with minimal wastage. 

Training takes place in our roastery. We invite you behind the scenes to learn our craft.
