ROASTERS OF VERY GOOD COFFEE SINCE 2013
Welcome to our website. The placeholder copy here said it needed to be an intro paragraph. So, hello, how do you do? We are Father Coffee. We're a specialty coffee roastery. We seek out coffees that are exemplars of provenance, varietal, and processing and then we roast them. Our roastery releases around 40 or so each year and you can enjoy them as very good cups of coffee in our cafés, at our wholesale partners, or in your own home. We also like other things to be good, so we also have a bakery, a wine bar, some wine shops, and other things. You can learn a little more about them and us below and by just finding your way around this site. Consider yourself introduced. 🎤
Roastery, cafe, kitchen, bakery, wine bar & shop, training rooms & cupping lab
Public Holidays open as usual, unless you're reading this between 25/12 and 01/01 – go to Rosebank.
Spacious, delightful, but this location can get busy so we ask you to share tables and power points during rush periods.
If you'd like your own space, our lovely glass lab is available for hire as a co-working space, boardroom, tasting table from R500/hour (70" screen and sound available at an additional cost). Seats 8pax comfortably and 12pax uncomfortably. No offsite food or drink may be consumed. Email Megan to make a booking. Large working groups may be asked to relocate to the lab on busy days. We reserve the right to charge a chair rate for wifi hustlers.
Our sister resident, Winebar lives in the space with us and offers a weekly menu of exceptional natural and low-intervention wines all by the glass as well as a wide selection of bottles to enjoy in or take home.
Cafe, kitchen & wine shop
Public Holidays open as usual. Unless it's 25/12, 26/12 or 01/01, we'll be open, always, forever and ever.
The high-rises of Rosebank get to us too and if we had to work in them, we might also resort to sitting in a dreamy cafe with a rotating selection of specialty-grade microlot coffees. While our cafe is a great space to work, it is also primarily a great place for coffee, so we ask that you please treat our space fairly. Seating is limited. We reserve the right to charge a chair rate for wifi freeloaders.
Due to reasons, this store cannot serve alcohol, however it does stock a selection of some of the best natural and low-intervention wines the country has to offer, all ready to buy and drink at home or at that dinner party you're heading to.
