Josie Coffee was founded from a passion for sourcing incredible coffees from around the world so you can enjoy the perfect cup.
We are a small family run business, owned and operated by Chris and his wife Kate. Both Chris and Greg are our roasters (among other things), our wholesale customers will be familiar with Paul our account manager and along with our friendly coffee bar staff!
THE WHY BEHIND JOSIE COFFEE
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.
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.
