The Danes Story

From day one, we’ve been trailblazers.
In the 90s we carved our own path, exploring new horizons that paved the way for the Australian specialty coffee industry.

Danes Specialty Coffee Champion Australian Roaster dedicated to incredible flavour

Fast forward to today, and we’ve been crowned the 2018 and 2109 Champion Australian Roaster by the Australian International Coffee Awards. It tops off a record haul of 61 gold, silver and bronze medals in recent years, winning Gold in all categories including Filter, Espresso Blends, Single Origin and Cold Brew.

In 2019, we celebrate 25 years of innovating the specialty coffee industry and 20 years of teaching baristas and coffee lovers about flavour-filled coffee.

With a new look and an accomplished team, we continue to bring a fresh approach, always unearthing new flavours for you to experience.

Flavour is our focus.

Passion for flavour is what drives us. It guides every element of our roastery, retail, training and wholesale activities. Our consistency in roasting, flavour profiles and sourcing only the most premium beans allows us to create these award winning flavours.

We want to show you how coffee flavours can vary through the expression of sweetness, aroma, body and finish – to help you define your favourite flavour. Whether you drink your coffee white or black, understanding how to articulate the flavours you like best is the key to enjoying delicious coffee. That’s how we help you define your flavour.
