Dukes Coffee Roasters is an Australian wholesale specialty coffee roasting company based in Melbourne, Victoria and Perth, WA. Our sole focus is the craft of carefully roasting the best coffees in the world using innovative and methodic roasting practices.
We are committed to bringing the best selection of exceptionally grown, amazing tasting and in season specialty coffees to cafes and consumers in Australia.
Since our inception over a decade ago, we have worked continuously to build strong relationships with some of the best coffee growers, cooperatives and producer groups in each coffee growing region around the world.
Each lot of coffee we buy has been ethically traded, sourced from individual farms or small cooperatives and is traceable down to farm level.
We are blessed to be working with highly knowledgeable, passionate coffee farmers and cooperatives across Central and South America, Africa and Asia, that are focused on using the most sustainable and regenerative agricultural practices.
Our expert green coffee buying and quality control team work tirelessly to ensure every bag of green coffee that arrives at the Dukes roastery conforms to our strict exceptional quality and taste requirements. After cupping hundreds of samples throughout the year, only the very finest and most suitable are selected for our blends and single estate offerings.
We roast fresh daily in Melbourne on Loring Smart Roast and Probat roasting machines. Our roasting philosophy is centred around a need to forever improve, to relentlessly work towards the most enjoyable representation of a particular coffee.
The Dukes roastery in Melbourne produces beautiful, freshly roasted specialty coffee each day with an unmatched attention to detail. Each lot is carefully selected and then profiled, tweaked and cupped rigorously before being made available to you.
Our espresso blends are developed from the ground up with an eye for consistency not just from roast to roast but also throughout the year. Each batch is screened, cupped and tested by our roasters. As some growing regions come into season and others move on, we rework our blends gradually and deliberately so it is at its peak.
For us, coffee quality is more than just the flavour in the cup: Environmental and social sustainability stand at the heart of everything we do. We are dedicated to reducing our negative impact on the earth and supporting the communities that took part in the production process.
We are always on the look out for new team members who share our passion and dedication for great coffee, service and hospitality.
