The Melbourne Choice Collection Box 10

Widely regarded as the coffee capital of Australia and undisputedly the pioneers of Australia’s world-class coffee culture – Melbourne needs no introduction.  While visitors to Sydney may book themselves a Bridge climb and Opera House tour, visitors to Melbourne are more than likely to sign up for popular ‘Coffee and Culture’ walking tour that reflects Melbourne’s historical and cultural ties to its homegrown coffee culture that has become Australia’s most famous lifestyle export. This city’s unique coffee culture is all about paying homage to the classic bean while innovating new coffee styles from pour-over and siphon to cold-drip coffee.

I'M READY FOR ROUND 2 BOXED CITY COLLECTIONS!

We’re stoked to share with you these collection boxes, featuring some incredible Australian coffees from the best roasters in Perth, Hobart, and a special edition Christmas Choice Collection. 

1. The Perth City Choice Collection Box 05

The Secret is Out! Perth may be known as the most isolated city in Australia but few will know that it boasts their own, world-class, unique coffee culture driven by locals’ discerning tastes for premium, specialty coffee. Our City Collection box features multiple award-winning roasts and signature blends from four of WA’s top roasters who run coffee shops and coffee concept stores that wouldn’t look out of place in Tokyo or Los Angeles.  

WA’s tight-knit coffee community has turned their geographical isolation into a very big positive. It’s forced them to create their own unique coffee culture that reflects their envied quality of lifestyle, nature, and weather. While locals have a thirst for coffee, they also demand the best from local roasters and crave premium, specialty coffees, matched by a desire to be informed and educated about the coffee they drink. That is why Perth is home to Australia’s first coffee concept shops and gastronomic coffee tasting experiences. Perth coffee drinkers do not hold back and are happy to push the boundaries in their coffee tastes. It’s all about experimental tastes meeting new experiences. Perth’s laid-back lifestyle combined with the locals discerning coffee tastes has made their coffee culture something to be savoured.  Our City Collection Perth is the closest thing to getting on a plane and discovering something new and special.

Circling Tassie is on everyone’s bucket list and this collection features all the best coffee stops along the way. As the Artisan Capital of Australia, we knew we’d find some quintessential small-batch roasters to show off the best of Tassie’s coffees adorned by local foodies.

We’ve selected coffee from as far down South as anyone would want to go, hidden amongst native bush on the Tasman Peninsula, supplying coffee to solar-powered espresso bars perched on top of hillsides around Pirates Bay lookout in Eaglehawk Neck.

 

From Hobart’s CBD, we’ve got an early player in the scene ‘Villino Coffee’ with two cafes that are staple caffeine stops for local coffee lovers and visitors alike. Because we can’t go past a cobblestone laneway, we’ve stumbled across De Lacey Coffee Roasters selecting one of our very first organic coffees this year grown in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.

If you’re into what’s intriguing about Hobart then you can’t go past Straight Up Coffee Roasters on your way to the MONA art gallery. Situated just up from the River Derwent this Cafe & Roastery is for the cool cats run by a pair of sassy female roasters.

Together these coffees claim that Tasmania’s air (some of the cleanest in the world) circulating through their roasters makes the coffee taste better! We’d have to agree but you’ll need to try for yourself.

ROUND 1 COLLECTIONS

We’re stoked to share with you our city choice coffee collection boxes, featuring some incredible Australian coffees from the best roasters  in Newcastle, Brisbane and Adelaide. 

1. The Newcastle City Choice Collection Box 01

Newcastle is a cafe mecca for coffee lovers, with hipsters (and hipsters at heart) sipping on both traditional and alternative brews on every block. Locals consider their favourite cafes to be sacred. Newcastle isn’t just another coal and steel city, or sports mad, surf mad, or any other kind of stereotype. The hipster movement was born here and with that came a serious cafe culture. There’s a cafe on every corner (right next to the pub obviously!). Locals have more pride in their coffee than the Knights. OK, maybe that’s going too far but pretty close.  This city boasts acclaimed artisan roasters that are pioneering innovative roasting techniques around sustainability, carbon-neutral and sourcing beans. You name it, they’re into it!  No surprise that two of these selections are awarding-winning roasts.
