Coffee Shop

At Background Speciality Coffee Roasters, we believe that every step in the coffee process, from the farm to the cup, is important to ensure a great final product. We source our own beans using Direct Trade coffee (ethically grown and harvested) and lovingly roast them ourselves using the finest equipment and time-honoured artisan techniques. For a true coffee you have to try Background coffee.

From “the Warehouse” in Cromer we not only roast coffee, but also distribute wholesale coffee machines, accessories and our roasted beans across Australia. You can order any of these securely online and we will ship them out to you asap. We keep a select stock of what we consider to be market leading products in the coffee industry; you can buy all our products on the online store

Coffee Lab

We are always in the lab thinking of a new roast or a new way to use our beans. A project with Nomad Brewing Company provided the opportunity to put specially prepared beans into a beer. A challenge but we got there in the end!

Coffee Lab Nomad Long Trip Saison

The Legendary Long Trip Spiced Saison Beer.

A collaboration with Nomad Brewing Co.

“A combination of pale and wheat malts, with the addition into the mash of a special variety of our Background Single-origin Coffee. European and American hops then get combined with some fantastic unique Aussie ingredients like wattle seeds and organic Tasmanian pepper, added at the end of the boil. The result is a dry, clean and very sessionable Saison with hints of coffee, citrus and spice.”
