Iconic Coffee: Australia

Australia has developed a specialty coffee culture that is among the greatest in the world.

We first came to Australia in 2000, setting up our Sydney roastery in Zetland; since then, we owe it to our partners who have brewed our flavour with as much care as we do ourselves. These are a few of the many partnerships throughout Australia that inspire us every day.

Market Lane

Set back off the busy Corso in central Manly, Market Lane Café has been operating since 2012 and is truly Manly’s own café. 

Having moved to Sydney to study, Vik fell in love with Australian coffee culture and knew he wanted to run his own café one day. His experiences in the hospitality industry solidified his need to stay and he’s been exploring the café scene in Sydney ever since. 

Being set in one of Sydney’s busiest beachside locations, he takes pride in operating an independent café for the locals.

Kepos St Kitchen

Just off the main drag of Bourke St, Redfern, you’ll find Kepos St Kitchen and its tables sitting on the quiet, leafy Kepos St.

Owner and hatted chef Michael has a love of exquisite food and exceptional flavour. Raised in Israel, Michael learnt to cook from his mother and aunties from a young age, which is evident in the Kitchen’s offering. An institution pairing flavours from around the world, Michael has turned his passion for cooking into a career — and we’re all the beneficiaries.

Hinchcliff House 

Grana is an all day bakery and eatery serving our Allpress Espresso Blend for lunch through to late dine-in evenings on the ground floor of historic Hinchcliff House. 

Since working in hospitality and the food world, Johnny’s been hunting the perfect accompaniment to espresso for years. A fan of heavier-bodied coffee (think chocolate, caramels, cocoa), he’s crafted the perfect sfogliatella to complement our Allpress Espresso Blend. 

On the ground floor of a 140 year old heritage listed building, when you’re next down by the water be sure to pay this impressive space a visit and experience some of the finest flavour in Sydney.

A grunge altar in the heart of Fitzroy, Skull Trash is a haven from day to night for everyone passing through Melbourne’s inner east. 

Switch and the team welcome all sorts at the café — this is a space for everyone and anyone to escape the fast pace of Fitzroy’s Brunswick St. Influenced by art, fashion and music, Skull Trash lets people enjoy what they love, with nothing to apologise for.

Stones Throw

What started as a single shop front has expanded to include the neighbouring space, which is now a community hub with a huge following.

Trent previously worked at Allpress in Collingwood and knew exactly what he wanted to create in Montmorency when he set up shop in 2018. A café that caters to the whole community’s specialty coffee needs and then some, Stones Throw offers a large seasonal menu of Australian café classics made from local produce — with an expansive specialty coffee offering for the home barista.

Epilo is a biophile’s dream. An oasis tucked away on Deshon St in Wolloongabba, this haven is a tribute to living colour.
