  • List of roasters in Perth

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forum, I bought a Breville Barista Express about 3 months ago and have been experimenting with various beans. I'm looking for something that comes through quite sweet and malty when making a flat white and so far have only found this once and sadly it was a monthly special from Yahava.

    I've tried the following roasters, although not every bean they have, but certainly the ones they recommended when I described what I was looking for:

    • Blacklist
    • Darkstar
    • Leftfield
    • Yahava


    Can anyone recommend some more Perth roasters or a specific bean to try? I'm also aware of Laika, just having trouble getting to them during their opening hours.

    These are the tasting notes from the coffee I liked - Lots of malt, toffee sweetness, red apple, apricot, smooth mouthfeel, clean finish

    Your tasting notes won't help me any, but I have been using
    Crema gourmet roasters- canning Vale
    Leaf bean machine- Spearwood
    And your blacklist have been ok
    Just got a kilo of grinders from Woolies with a best before of 4/21, it's a bit darker than my usual (can notice that in the hand grinder)!, Though it says medium roast. It's on same grinder setting as last blacklist roast, so fresh is good.

    Im sure beanbay here will have something to your liking, and perhaps browse the taste notes there for something delicious...

        Add Grand Central in Bibra Lake. They are mostly wholesalers these days, however they always have a few interesting medium roasted SOs as well as some quality house blends.

        +1 for Antz In Ya Pantz - although they are still pretty variable from what I have heard. Last time I went there (a year or more ago), I found 2 or 3 really good roasts amidst their offerings - together with a few duds.

          I remember those tasting notes from when we visited Yahava in Margaret River last year, that was our favourite of all their beans on offer at the time. Good luck on your quest!

              Port City Roaster in fremantle has a good selection of freshly roasted beans. Happy Days and Early Bird are my favourites.

              Also Gesha Coffee in fremantle is deliciously creamy. Queens Crown is the one I've tried, I've been told Singing Rooster is also good

                I find that almost always, when I do a roast of the Brazil yellow burbon especiale beans from beanbay they always give smooth and chocolate like notes in flat whites.

                Cheers

                  Thanks all, that gives me plenty of new options to follow up on. We actually tried some Crema coffee at a cafe tucked away in Busselton a couple of weeks ago and it was very good. I took a note of the roaster but it must have slipped my mind.

                  I didn't realise the forum also had a coffee roaster, just having a browse on beanbay, I'll need to try some from there as well.

                    Sounds good, one of my favourite beans when I was living in the UK was a bourbon blend, I'll need to get my hands on some.

                      Depending on where you are located but a visit to bibra lakes industrial area is worth it there are three roasters there within 1 klm of each other, be aware of opening times, they are mentioned in this thread but all are very friendly and helpful and have good beans both green and roasted .

                        I'm in Maylands so will try some of the closer ones first but not a problem to go past Bibra Lakes for a browse if there are three there.

                        I was in Freo yesterday and nipped into Gesha when I was passing for a look. All their coffee had a BestBy date and no roasted date, is that the norm for them? The advice I was given was always to buy from a roaster that prints the date it was roasted. Nice packaging though...

                          Have a chat to Nic at Precision Roasters in bassendean/Bayswater. I’ve been buying from him for years. I’d suggest his Ethiopian Sidamo but tbh I’m not sure how he roasts them cause I only buy green beans from him. Not even sure if he roast it as a single origin anyway. He did used to do a sample selection on his website so you could try everything. Normally I buy in person but I’m a lot more time poor these days and my last order of 8kg only cost $5 in delivery so pretty cheap.

                            Not sure if the omission was intentional or not, however Bolt Coffee in Hazelmere, soon to be in Bayswater is very popular. A Google search will help you find them.
                            My favourite is “Blue”. Plum, Shiraz, Dark Chocolate.
                            Owner Steve is a unique but very passionate character who has worked hard to develop a consistent blend.

                              Strolling the isles of a Local Farmer Jacks recently (a grocery store) I spotted some 200g valve bags with an FCR, Freemantle Coffee Roasters, label on them. There were three different blends on offer, so scoured the valve bag for a date reference and found an MFG number (manufacturing number I presumed) clearly printed on the top of the bag, which indicated to me that they were roasted withing 2 weeks. $5 for 200g is not aseconomical as home roasting via BeanBays offerings but I decided to give them a go anyway. I was pleasantly surprised, so much so, I had another "look" 6 weeks later and there were fresh bags available with recent MFG dates, tried them again (also out of curiosity) and again very pleasantly surprised by the result. No idea who FCR is and have no affiliation, but as an emergency option, in the future, their offerings will be strongly considered, if needed, due to circumstances. There were also colourful "Gesha" bags on offer from another local roaster I presume, but they had no roast date on them so avoided.
