The Story

Where there are questions, there is illusion.
Where there is illusion, there is pleasure.

Roasting coffee requires a little more than applying heat to the dried seed of a flowering plant.

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 actually do is:
Source high-grade green beans from international farms and growers. Roast it. Pop it into bags of varying sizes, ripe for wholesale delivery or purchase at our retail counter.

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

For those keen to taste the wares before you lay down your hard earned cash, cupping sessions run on Thursdays, and are open to industry and novice alike.

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

We package and supply the goods to discerning businesses and retail customers.

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

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

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 courses through our process. From our relationships at origin, to the baristas who extract the good stuff, to the beloved cafe customers who elegantly gulp 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.

Good coffee
is for everyone.
