In the vibrant and eclectic area of Balaclava comes The Coffee Company, a smart cafe and roastery dedicated to offering a first-rate specialty coffee since 1969.

The Coffee Company roasts its coffee in store every day and offers almost fifty single origin coffees, making the place a favourite destination for coffee lovers.

Renovated last year, the cafe is built in a large, open warehouse with industrial features. The colours are light and the furniture designed to create an urban chic atmosphere. There is also coffee machines along the wall – like a huge roasting plant – where you can be part of the coffee preparation.

The “coffee factory” provides organic, ethical and eco-friendly green beans, from leading growers across the world. Besides the high quality of their beans, the owners aim to produce daily roasting for freshness and excellence. “There is no storage elsewhere or warehouse. We roast everything, every day here. So we constantly provide fresh coffee”, says Marlon Dubs, co-owner of the store.

Here, you can find the traditional coffees served around Melbourne, but also where, every month, you can try out a different origin coffee, especially selected by the owner. A great initiative to be introduced to a different type of aroma. Plus, you can find some delicious sweet products, such as French jam and chocolates.

Not only providing great coffee, they also sell a selection of over 100 loose leaf teas. Since introducing tea to the store in 2004, The Coffee Company has created its own label, The Carlisle Tea.

Finally the retail shop is full all types of coffees machines to purchase, whether you’re a French press person or an expresso one.


Owners, Marlon and Joel, also provide postal services around Australia, if you aren’t in Melbourne, so you can enjoy their delicious product everywhere.

With a devoted passion for coffee, professional advices and a friendly atmosphere, The Coffee Company is definitely your next coffee stop.
