Every cup makes a difference.
In today's competitive specialty coffee market the most important decision you have in front of you is choosing the right coffee roaster. At Kai Coffee, our major point of difference is that we ONLY roast ethically sourced, specialty grade 84+ scoring coffees AND every kilo you buy feeds four kids in poverty. At the moment we are partnering with The Shepherd Centre in Uganda, Feed the Hungry in Australia and Compassion Australia. Together we feed over 7,500 kids each month! When you chose Kai Coffee as your roaster you join the story of making a difference in the lives of these kids around the world.
Passion for our craft.
Our obsession with coffee drives us to use the world's greatest roasting technologies and strategies to continually perfect our craft. Our weapon of choice is the incredible Probat roaster. They are not only the oldest roaster, but also the best for craft high end drum roasters. We use two different profiling systems (Cropster and Probat Roast Control) simultaneously, to ensure the same quality and consistency every time.
Coffee is an organic product which requires dedication and skill in the ways it's grown, harvested, processed and roasted. Our relationships with our farmers and importers allows us to confidently bring in some of the world's best coffees from its best producers. We then roast each bean specificaly to draw out its inherant flavor qualities, making them shine in the cup.
We excel at making baristas.
We’d initially love to meet with you and discuss your current knowledge of coffee. We will then map out a plan to continually train, equip and encourage you and your staff as you progress in specialty coffee. Our beginner, advanced and latte art courses are all free of charge to our wholesale clients. You'll move from the basics of extraction, dosage, TDS and brew temp; to milk quality, texturing and pouring. In the advanced course we will look at flavours in-depth, cupping different coffees around the world and learning the secrets of pulling out specific complexities in the shots by playing with several variables of grind, dosage and temperature.
We can also offer expert advice on choosing the right espresso equipment. The machine and grinder you chose will not only affect the quality of coffee served, but also set the standard for the type of cafe you want to be. We sell most brands and can offer suggestions and advice as needed.
Servicing your machine is part of the deal for us. We will get you set up with the right filters for your water and come up every six months or so to give a full service to the machine and grinders.
