Who we are


Established in 2012 in Brunswick, Melbourne, Code Black Coffee do things differently.

We make quality, high end coffee accessible to everyone. Through knowledge, relentless research, extensive sourcing, testing and quality control, we deliver the best of the best.

Whether we are sourcing quality green beans from our partners locally or at origin, our goal is to pay respect to the chain of events that have preceded us, and honour the efforts of the producer through our final products.

The discerning Melbourne coffee scene has driven us to the forefront of the industry. From the cafe, to the food offering and coffee, the all encompassing experience that Code Black Coffee delivers is distinctive and inherently Melbourne. 


What we do


The mysterious power of heat enables it to produce external, perceptible, even phenomenal results by its own inherent energy. It’s a scientific process; the enchanting charms of this sublime science reveal themselves in all their beauty only to those who have the courage to go deeply into it ...

Yes indeed, it’s serious stuff... But what we really do is:

Source quality green beans from our partners locally and at origin. Roast it. Pop it into bags of varying sizes; ripe and ready for wholesale delivery or our retail counter.

If you’re in the business of coffee, Code Black provides a complete wholesale coffee supply to industry, roasting selected single origin, signature blends and decaffeinated coffees, and allows discerning buyers to develop their own customised blends under our watchful eye.

We train baristas to do extraordinary things with the fruits of our labour.

Sounds simple enough? It takes time, vast amounts of research and knowledge, constant testing and quality control, thought, rigour, blood, sweat and joyful tears.

But at the core of all of this, is something greater than the sum of our parts...

A deep respect for both the produce itself and all its complexities, and for the amazing people who nurture and grow the stuff we proffer. It's a level of respect that permeates through our process. From our relationships at origin, to the baristas who extract the good stuff, to the beloved cafe customers who elegantly drink it down, we maintain a singular goal, and that is to be the Best.

We strive to be the very best out of respect for every single person that allows us to do what we do.
