Allpress Espresso Speciality Coffee Roasters

Allpress Espresso is built on relationships. Their success as a coffee roaster is down to the success of the people they choose to partner with – from their first café customer, to their staff around the world and even down to John, who comes in to their Dunedin Roastery Café every morning for a long black. Human connection is why they are here and it’s these important relationships they create that steer them on the right path when they veer off course. They realise that sometimes it’s as simple as connecting two people in a café over a couple of flat whites.

Michael Allpress (yes, there’s a guy) was inspired to establish Allpress Espresso after witnessing the specialty coffee revival in Seattle during the late ‘80s. Early on, their obsession with flavour saw a switch from being New Zealand’s first coffee cart, to roasting coffee in the back of a garage and supplying it to cafés around Auckland City. They’ve come a long way since 1989 and today they’re lucky enough to work with over 1000 independent cafes around the world.

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)Our Answer: Informed purchasing decisions are advised, from the independent coffee roasters featured here on the GUSTATORY marketplace. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
