Padre Coffee was born in Brunswick East back in late 2007/early 2008. We started small, roasting, brewing and selling all of our coffee under the one roof in the heart of the community; making friends, having fun and learning as we went.
Our dedicated roasting team put all of their time and energy into the curation of a diverse, accessible and ever-changing range of premium single origin and blended coffee beans, which we’re proud to source from traders and farmers all around the world that know the value of quality and believe - as we do - in ethical and sustainable production.
We roast our coffee in small, loving batches; juggling time, temperature and air-flow to create a fulfilling flavour profile for each bean. It's a pleasure to taste and test our coffee exhaustively, and to brew with the very best equipment. At Padre we drink coffee every way we know how, and are devoted to the education and information that will help our customers to get the best out of every cup.
The Padre family has grown to include two roasteries, two stand-alone cafes and a handful of wonderful wholesale clients.
Opened in early 2016, our Noosa roastery has become a mecca for the Sunshine Coast's coffee community; a roastery, cafe, retail store, training lab and wholesale HQ all-in-one, where we roast, brew and drink Padre Coffee all under the same roof. A bright, sunny and open space brings all the elements together.
Padre Coffee Brunswick East at 438-440 Lygon Street was our first cafe and is still going strong after all these years. Home to our Melbourne roastery, it is down-to-earth and friendly, the perfect place to fine-tune your aeropress technique or settle in with the weekend paper.
Padre Coffee South Melbourne, open since December 2009, is perfectly at home among the South’s finest butchers, bakers and candlestick makers. Providing soothing lattes, friendly advice and beans by the bag to the bustling market masses, a quick stop at our South Melbourne stall is a must for Melbourne’s most discerning shoppers.
