Leftfield Coffee is the culmination of over 23 years of experience roasting specialty coffee. It started all at a time when the market was controlled by a few very large commercial roasters and people like Kamran wanted to do it better.
At Leftfield Coffee they create complex and richly flavoured coffees by combining the best parts of old school techniques and modern developments.
The beans are roasted on custom-built Probat Coffee Roasters with thick cast iron plates, constructed from the original 1950s blueprints, modified with the latest state-of-the-art burners and controls for absolute precision.
The roasting team doesn’t use computers to control the roast. They are taught to use their senses and intuition to create a unique and consistent coffee. The roasters’ focus is always on the beans not on a computer screen. This is what gives Leftfield Coffee its special something, a personality that is hard to replicate.
From the farmers, pickers and processors, to the roasters, baristas and café owners, Leftfield works with a large diverse community that they care deeply about. To them, it’s always been about serving the community that they are a part of.

Follow your dream. Quit your day job. Open a coffee shop! Frothin Coffee was started as a means for a family to step outside the norm and create something awesome together.
Roasting for the Frothin team began as a hobby. Buying green beans online, roasting on a frypan and smoking out the kitchen. Soon operations progressed to the shed utilising a modified barbeque.
Things got real when they discovered wood fire roasting. They reached out to Matteo and Lisa, owners of roasting equipment manufacturer Trabattoni. A trip to Italy ensued and the wonderful world of roasting coffee over a gentle wood flame was realised.
Frothin Coffee now operates out of a repurposed mechanic workshop. All of their coffee is roasted in the 15kg Trabattoni and they love the rich development that wood fire gives.
The roastery also has a café and drive through attached. This allows for plenty of customer interaction as they try different blends, origins and roast profiles. It’s been a pretty satisfying journey so far.
