About Barossa Coffee

Our Story

More like a craft than a production, we roast in very small batches with very big smiles… small, intimate and joyful, just the way we like it. Hand roasted, hand packed, hand stamped with the roast date is how our beans make their way into the cups of the Barossa and beyond.

Barossa Coffee Roasters grew in our hearts and our heads over many a cup of home roasted coffee, an on the side thing that became a passion for freshly roasted beans that seemed to elude us in the Barossa all those years ago. The birth of our first daughter Amilie ignited the desire for a peaceful and flexible lifestyle and an urge to share a passion crafted with our own hands, in a slow and conscious way. The brand was born, a Roaster was purchased and our shed was converted into a purpose built Roastery, overlooking our vines through salvaged French Doors. We set up shop from 2010 – 2016 to sell the weeks fresh roast at the local Saturday morning Barossa Farmers Market, extending to our second daughter Lucy joining us behind the trestle. Experiencing our kids growing up so fast, we retired from the Farmers Market to the end of 2016 to focus on the next phase of life and our thriving coffee business. 

Seasonal Single Origin coffee is our focus, echoing the boutique wine industry that surrounds us and our own patch of Shiraz that we play with and bottle each vintage. The link of family grown spoke to us through stories of coffee origin and the heart and soul of where the beans are born sing their song through every roast. Our focus on traceable high grade beans declares our respect for the grower and origin, just as we wish for our own patch of vines.

A focus on People and Planet Friendly practices shape our business choices and by default our lifestyle; a philosophy that joyfully finds its way into every bean.

We look forward to sharing our beans with you.
