Padre Coffee

Padre Coffee was born at the Brunswick East Project, back in 2008. Their dedicated roasters put endless time and energy into the curation of a diverse and ever-changing range of premium single origin and blended coffee beans, which are proudly sourced from traders and farmers all around the world that know the value of quality and believe in ethical and sustainable production.

August 2012 saw Padre Coffee undertake a project like nothing they’ve ever done before. An incredible two-week fit out saw their fourth cafe born from a pair of skeleton shipping containers on the south-west fringe of the iconic Queen Victoria Market. Spearheading the iconic market’s brand-new artist’s precinct, Padre Coffee have created a friendly, cosy place with exceptional coffee. Padre Coffee roast in small, loving batches; juggling time, temperature and air-flow to create a fulfilling flavour profile for every bean. Roasting coffee is equal parts science, art and magic, but there’s nothing like the smell that lets you know you’ve got it right.

Open Tuesday & Thursday 7am-2pm; Friday, Saturday & Sunday 7am-4pm
