Roastery Renos

It’s all happening at Moffat! We’re getting close to the finish line of our roastery renovations. The sad news is, we’ll need to close to make the final magic happen.

We’ll be closed from the 26th August, reopening on the 16th September.

All shiny and new! We’ve got more seating coming, more food and a few other surprises in store. Come and see for yourself!

Need beans? Our online shop will be running as usual.

If you’re located in the Caloundra region, use the code LOCALSHIP and shipping is on us! Pelican Waters counts, Newcastle… probably not…

See you on the other side.

coffee roastery renovation




sunshine coast coffee goes reusable

Did you know that the vast majority of coffee bags in Australia aren’t recyclable? Yep, that’s a whole lot of packaging going to waste all over Australian homes and cafes.

When we designed our coffee bags we ended up being really disheartened with the bag options available. A few beers later, we ended up going with a box. Our boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard, and are completely reusable. Yep, not only recyclable… but reusable!

Keep the coffee card (there’s information on the farm and processing on the back!) and bring back your box for a free coffee. A bit more work if you live in Perth or Jakarta but we’ll know you care.

And for even more impact for our wholesale accounts; cafes, restaurants and bars we deliver in completely reusable Willie pails. They look great in your cafe, have an airtight seal and we’ll pick them up just like your milk crates. Because not only the planet… but who needs that extra run to the bin?


Coffee Boxes


We have moved!

We’re one step closer to having our roastery, coffee shop and tea bar all under ONE ROOF!

If you’ve visited us before in Moffat Beach, we’re now across the road. About, let’s say, 100m from our previous location. Right in between Tribal Fitness and Powerlife keeping our energy high.

We’ll miss our 4 Ingredient neighbours terribly but you all have promised to make the enormous walk (!) across the road… so we’ll see you there soon!

Dogs are welcome as always, and there’s still plenty of parking now with lots more shady space to hang out.

Come check out our new digs and what’s going to be a great community space in the near future.

We`ll admit, it was a bit of a last minute scramble. Our Colombia beans had only arrived a day before we had to send off our entry so it was a `first roast… fingers crossed` kinda day!

The calibre of coffee at this years Golden Bean was exceptional, we tasted some incredible coffees and are so humbled to be considered up there with Australia and New Zealands’ best.

The conference itself was fantastic, and it was such fun to catch up with roasters from Canada, the U.S., Australia and NZ and the many beers helped keep the espresso jitters at bay.

Speaking of beer, we had to sadly fly out before the awards dinner so will have to find another opportunity to whip out the medieval gear. Will does rock a knight costume.

See you next year Port Macquarie, we had a blast.

New Filter - Don Sabino Washed!

Toot the horn! We’ve just put our first boxes of one of our favourite filter coffees, Don Sabino’s washed process on the shelf. This filter coffee is clean, crisp and reminds us of those red candy apples you almost broke your teeth on as a kid.

Don Sabino Coffee

We visited Don back in February on his small coffee farm La Fuente in Nicaragua with Ben from Gold Mountain Coffee Growers (a very handy translator as our Spanish is basic at best), just outside Jinotega.

The farm sits at 1400m and produces both Catuai and Caturra. At the end of a long day of farm visits, we rolled down one VERY steep driveway (ask Will about his newly found 4WD skills) and bumped our way to a very modest, but warm and inviting family home.

Inside, we met Don, his wife, 3 small children and their cute dog who couldn’t get enough of a tummy scratch.

With the premium price Don received for his outstanding coffee he wished to improve some of the buildings and processing equipment on the farm. With new raised beds last year, Don experimented with his very first natural processed coffee, where the cherries are dried whole. If you’re after an even wilder ride with Don’s coffee, we’ll have some of the natural in the coming months!

If you’re new to filter, check out our brew guides or give us a shout, we’ll happily show you some tips. Enjoy this coffee, we sure are.

… Is Don, is good!

BYO Cup

Coming down to our Moffat Beach Pop Up? We make every effort to ensure that we are a responsible cafe and we encourage you to BYO cup and save 50c when you do.

If you don’t have your BYO cup on you, no worries. We get it, sometimes coffee just calls! Our takeaway cups are 100% biodegradable (including the lid!).

We also sell our Willie meet Frank - Frank Green Coffee Cups for sale. Coffee’s on us when you buy one!

We look forward to being able to offer even more sustainable options in the future when we have a permanent space. As we’ll have everything including that ol’ kitchen sink!

Until then… bring down your keep cups! Good for the planet, fun for all.
