Aircoffee is built on relationships. My neighbour is my best taster. We are passionate about espresso locally, and can be found at the local market second Sunday of the month, so drop by and sample a filter coffee, buy a bag of coffee, or just have a chat. We are focused on supplying coffee locally through our roasting business and supply only organic, fairly traded coffee that is packaged in compostable bags.
Our success roasting coffee is down to the success of our relationships in the community we are building with everybody – our green coffee suppliers, cafes, and those that love drink our coffee. If there is anything that can extend a relationship it’s “Hey, meet you for a coffee”. Things tend to expand from that.

We really like our suppliers, who aways ensure and help us to confidently, and responsibly provide the fairtrade organic green beans we roast.
All our coffee is roasted by us, using air roasters, which innovatively extends traditional roasting techniques, and consistently gives us the most awesome espresso in the cup. A dark, golden, nectar of deliciousness. The roast profiles we develop and use for our choice of beans are perfected by lots of quality control work… drinking coffee is a ritualistic pleasure our tasters [us] do every morning. We strive to meet consistently high standards in our roasts that provide fresh, roasted beans to satisfy, and feed the obsession …
