Koko Coffee Roasters
KoKo Coffee Roaster is roasting and serving up specialty brews from its new Mermaid Beach digs – a rustic warehouse on Karen Avenue (with the likes of the 19 Karen gallery and The Borrowed Nursery nearby), which is highlighted by crisp white brick walls, high ceilings and natural light that shines on one pretty impressive roasting machine. The new espresso bar and wholesale roaster specialises in roasting boutique-style blends, which have been developed through a labour of love and passion from owner and roaster Alex Winter. The KoKo blends utilise beans sourced from Brazil, Ethiopia, Columbia and India. This isn’t just a roaster that relies on large green bean wholesalers and it’s certainly not your average coffee shop – this is as boutique as they come.
