Our Story

We are a small family run business, owned and operated by Chris and his wife Kate. Chris looks after our wholesale customers, Greg is the self appointed 'Head of Coffee', Steve roasts coffee and handles the warehouse and, of course, we have our friendly coffee bar staff!

Josie Coffee founder Chris


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.

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. 

Josie Coffee quality beans are our passion

In every cup, Josie's passion for coffee continues

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.
