    Where can I buy fresh coffee locally?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    HI all, Ive had a search through some sponsors to no avail (they all seem to be in Melbourne or in the city), and I was just wondering where I could get my hands on some freshly roasted coffee around the Cherrybrook/Castle Hill/ Pennant Hills region?

    If anyone has any locations it would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hiya

    Dont worry about the beans coming from Melbourne. Just go to the brown bean bay on this site and order some. They are roasted fresh and will get to you in a few days. I have often ordered some roasted beans when I get my green beans and the roasted beans from Coffee Snobs are great. And there are lots of ones to choose from for espresso to milk based drinks to plunger.

    Like you I live at Thornleigh and there are not many roasting places near here, most are near city or Botany, Alexandria etc. Prices here in the Brown Bean Bay are very good by the way compared to roasteries in the city.

    I live in Far North Queensland and I ordered from BrownBay and got the beans 3 days post roast. The cost even with the postage was less than you buy at the local stores (up here anyway), as I used to order 1 - 2 kilos at a time. Most of the sponsors will mail order beans. ;)

    Likewise, Im a regular buyer from CoffeeSnobs "Buy Brown" at the left-hand side of the screen.

    Andy Freeman (the roaster) roasts on Sundays and Wednesdays, and I receive the Sunday roast on Wednesday, and the Wednesday roast on Friday, in Newcastle, via express post. Both of which are marvellous as I like to consume the Espresso Wow blend between days 3 and 10 post roast (pretty fussy nowadays!). I look forward with anticipation to each batch, and theyve always been on time.

    Im not sure but I think Mecca roast out in Parramatta these days, Im in brisbane though so im not sure on that one.

    Maybe try checking out some sydney roasters websites and see if they have any cafes that sell beans out that way.

    Good coffee does exist outside this website.

    Yeah, they took over the unused roastery on Cleveland street.

    To the OP, Ill join the chorus recommending the fresh coffee available from this website, as well as the sponsors. I think youll find that pretty much any specialty coffee roaster you buy from will be focused on quality and freshness, and even if you order beans from a company based in Rockingham WA they will arrive fresh and in plenty of time for you to rest the beans to use at home.
