Let's get personal...

Josie Coffee is owned and operated by Chris and his wife Kate. Chris looks after wholesale clients, runnings the business and sourcing green coffee. Greg is our self designated 'Head of Coffee' and looks after roasting and Quality Control. Steve roasts coffee and looks after the warehouse. We have a fantastic team of baristas in our cafes.

Let's get deeper...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 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 have a high quality wholesale programme and an extensive retail offering.

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 a US built Loring S15. We have a multitude of measuring devices and data collection to ensure our roasts are both consistent and tasty.

In conclusion...

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.
