Coffee is special. It brings people together and makes them happy. As a coffee company our single goal is to keep it special at each step in the process. From plant to harvest, from roasting to serving, specialty coffee is our labour of love.

Since 2008 we’ve been serving the best coffee we can get our hands on, and we’re humbled to have been voted among Sydney’s Best Specialty Coffee by Broadsheet Sydney, and The Urban List. We’ve also won numerous awards for our roasted coffee through Golden Bean and the Australian International Coffee Awards.

If you’re in Sydney we’d love you to pop into one of our cafes and experience our coffee first hand. If you live a little further away, you can get our fresh roasted coffee delivered to your door each fortnight through our coffee subscriptions.

The people and the places who produce our coffee are very important to us. In our quest to source the highest quality green beans, our staff and coffee buyers personally visit the farms and build direct relationships with the farmers and owners. This enables us to gain more knowledge and continue to improve our coffee and keep it special.

At the White Horse Roastery

The roastery

We roast on a rare German 1957 Probat UG22 which is a real privilege. The metals in these antique roasters conduct heat better than new roasters which results in a superior, full flavoured roast.

We’ve also added in a few state of the art mods to make sure our coffee is the best it can be. This includes cropster roast analysis software, environment temp and bean temp probes, along with a few “secret” tricks we’ve learned from some of the best coffee roasters in the world.

Every White Horse roast is analyzed for quality using an agtron spectrometer (colour reader), which ensures consistency in every batch. This is how we keep it consistently special. If you want to get your hands on some of our our fresh roasted coffee see our coffee subscriptions or our wholesale page.
