Our Story

Our products are influenced by our travels, our cultural backgrounds, the passionate people we work with, and diverse styles and flavours of the coffee beans we supply.

Founded in 2013 by Marcella Fiori and Rory Lloyd, The Coffee Officina is a workshop and coffee roastery where we hand roast small batches of high quality and ethically sourced coffee.

Through research and experience we are able to adjust the roast profile for each type of coffee bean, so we can bring out the best flavours and aromas of each varietal, processing method and origin.

Our ambition is to inspire and educate people on the world of coffee and make the process more transparent for everyone.

Our products are influenced by our travels, our cultural backgrounds, the passionate people we work with, and diverse styles and flavours of the coffee beans we supply.

We love what we do and we want to share it with everybody.

“Drinking great coffee can be a rewarding and exciting experience, not just a commodity.”

Roasting

Roasting is one of the most important parts of our process. So much work has already gone into the coffee beans we have selected, so it is our job to show off the unique flavours that are locked inside the green coffee.

We hand roast our coffee in a 10kg drum roaster to develop the flavours slowly over a period of 11-13 minutes. We believe that every type of coffee needs to be treated differently in the roaster, so that’s why we need to adjust our roast profile accordingly.

We constantly check the colour, temperature and aroma of the coffee so we can have as much control as possible throughout the roast process. We forensically document each roast, from temperatures to roasting times.

This intense process means that we are able to make sure we develop roasted beans which offer the best flavours and aromas depending on the varietal, processing method and origin.

We hope that our dedication and passion for roasting come across in how our coffees taste.

Our Coffee

We are always striving to source the best and most interesting coffees we can. Two of the most important parts of sourcing our coffee are transparency and sustainability.

We want to be able to tell our customers exactly where our coffee is from and why they taste the way they do. This way we can ensure that people at every stage of the coffee process are getting a good deal, from the dedicated people hand picking the coffee cherries, to the person enjoying the expertly-prepared coffee.

Just like any other crop, coffee is seasonal, so we are always trying to select coffees that are at their best. Doing this involves a lot of research and experimentation so we can ensure that our coffee is of the highest standard possible.

Certification
& Ethical trading

At The Coffee Officina we are absolutely committed to ensure all of our coffee is provided ethically, from field to cup. We work closely with coffee producers and a range of ethical importers who deal directly with coffee farmers at origins all over the world.

Our focus is to build lasting relationships, which means paying a price that provides a sustainable standard of living. The majority of these coffees are purchased at a fixed rate that is higher than the fair trade minimum.
