EVERYTHING is on display at our roastery café. You can see the coffee roasting in our production Chinook Air Flow roaster behind glass or ask for a quick tour.

Wash it down with one of our Medal Winning Single Origins or coffee blends.  Smile at Dara and his Merry Crew; tell them its your first visit and they will probably give you a free welcoming coffee.  Just don’t do it twice, memory like a steel trap.

Click the button at left to find us in Sydney.  Green Square is 400 Metres away; buses stop out front on Botany road.

Bike to the Brisbane roastery on Montague Road or take the bus.  See the roasting while you munch a muffin and have a pour over.  Or just quietly read the newspaper undisturbed over a coffee.

See how easy it is to roast your own coffee

Imagine being able to roast your favourite coffee.  You can using our computer controlled Piccolo Chinook air coffee roaster.

Pick any one of our approximately 30 Single Origins, choose one of our blends or create your own.  You will run the controls on your very first roast.  And, it only takes 15 minutes or maybe a little longer if you want us to Agtron the coffee for you.

Accurate uniform coffee roasting is easy when you have the right equipment.  Along with the roasted coffee you will be given a report of all roasting settings and a graph of the process so you can duplicate it the next time; or roast a little lighter or darker.  Oh, and a coffee beverage is included to savour while you roast the coffee.



The Chinook roasting system has been developed over the last 16 years with many in use up and down the East coast of Australia and internationally in New Zealand.

Air roasting has many advantages over other methods.  These advantages are becoming more important with the evolving focus on high quality coffees with complex flavours and varietal characteristics.

Some Air Roasting advantages are:

Vigorous air suspension of the coffee beans during roasting assures the cleanest result by eliminating all chaff and dust.

Heat is applied to the coffee in a very agile and controllable way; heat accepted by the air is applied to the coffee within a fraction of a second eliminating many of the heat control latency problems of older technologies.

The blanket application of heated air to the coffee beans assures all are heated evenly; over and under-roasted batches are a thing of the past.

The interesting artsy crafty part which uses our olfactory, taste and visual skills includes choosing the coffee and establishing the roasting profile (or recipe which controls how the heat is applied to the coffee).

During production all variables are monitored 10 times per second against the recipe. Consistent management of bean temperature, critical to the success of the roast, is assured. This includes automatically compensating for variable coffee moisture content.
