About Josie the business...
Josie Coffee was founded from a passion for great coffee. We are a family owned and operated business based in Newcastle NSW.
The Josie Coffee, Coffee bar/retail shop is now open at our roastery in Gateshead!
5/5 Metro Court Gateshead.
Let's get personal...
Josie Coffee is owned and operated by Chris and his wife Kate. Greg is our full time roaster (among other things) and barista extraordinaire, along with our coffee bar staff!
Chris roasts our single origins, oversees all of our production, green coffee buying, logistics, sales and quality control, ensuring our coffee is tasting awesome, all year round.
Kate is our in house graphic designer, who looks after all things design, not limited to but including the website and our logo as a tribute to Josephine Edden (Josie).
Greg roasts amazing coffee with Chris, pours the most delicious coffees at the markets and runs training for our wholesale customers.
Why "Josie" Coffee?..
Josie was Chris's cousin, who was unexpectedly taken from us at the young age of 23, in a tragic accident, in the Melbourne CBD, February 2015.
Coffee was a huge part of Josie's life, starting out as a Barista at Gloria Jeans in her hometown of Newcastle at age 14. She quickly refined her skills as a barista and continued to work there throughout her High School years. Her passion for coffee led her to move to Melbourne at age 18 and quickly pick up work in the coffee industry. Josie immersed herself in the Melbourne coffee industry becoming an integral member of a large specialty coffee company.

About our coffee...
Here at Josie Coffee we strive to produce the highest quality roasted coffee, by constantly refining our methods and cupping our roasts, to ensure consistency and an ever improving level of quality. We aim to source green coffees that suit our style of roasting, that is coffees that taste sweet, clean, have a pronounced and balanced acidity and produce interesting flavours in the cup. We roast all of our coffee on German built, industry gold standard, Probat coffee roasters. We currently have a Probat UG22 for all production roasting and a Probat P5 for all of our single origin coffees.
You can find us at the Newcastle Farmers Markets every Sunday and Lake Macquarie City Farmers Market on the second and fourth Saturday of the month, plus in your local cafes. For more information follow us on social media for locations or contact us here.
We pride ourselves on our customer service, which is beyond compare, and our constant drive to increase the quality of our roasted coffee to be the best! We look forward to helping our customers drink great coffee at home, in the cafe or wherever your coffee journey takes you.
In every cup Josie's passion for coffee continues.
