Founder & Owner
My grandfather retired to Spain in the 1960s, As a child when I visited him, I acquired a spontaneous and intense liking of espresso beverages. Early mornings and early evenings were spent consuming muchos cafes espressos in the local tapas bars. A ritual which I confess to retaining to this day. Back to 1997, with 20 years in the accounting profession behind, I purchased an Australian built 3kg fluid air bed roaster and put it in a shed in Aitkenvale. Back then micro roasters were few and roasting in its infancy, with practically all roasted the same x3 coffees together, in different proportions and with different roast profiles. No wonder it then all tasted the same. The plan was to introduce espresso coffee to Townsville by establishing a roastery and enhance the experience by sourcing coffees from Sumatra and PNG and ship them back to the Port of Townsville.
That's how Townsville got it first coffee roaster.
