Best Coffee Roasters in Merri-bek

On average, Melbourne imports 30 tonnes of coffee beans each day, enough to make 3 million cups per day! So it shouldn’t be a surprise that Merri-bek has some of the best coffee roasters in Melbourne, and perhaps, the world. So here are some of the best coffee roasters in Merri-bek.

Padre Coffee Brunswick East

438 Lygon St, Brunswick East VIC 3057

Cafe and coffee roaster with a curated menu of sustainably sourced single-origin and blended beans.

Padre Coffee was born in Brunswick East back in late 2007/early 2008. They started small, roasting, brewing and selling all of our coffee under the one roof in the heart of the community; making friends, having fun and learning as they went. Our Victorian HQ and roastery is still here in Brunswick East, and a lot of our first customers are as well — in fact, we’re proud to say that it’s thanks to the support of loyal, coffee-loving locals that we’ve grown up to be the company they are today.

They now have two beautiful stores selling coffee beans and brews in Melbourne as well as a stunning roastery-cafe now open in Noosa. After years refining the process while roasting for ourselves, the Padre family has also grown to include a handful of special cafes & venues in Victoria and Queensland.

At the same time, not much has changed. Padre is still a small, owner-run business that prides itself on exceptional products and outstanding service. They love making coffee.



54 Gaffney St, Coburg North VIC 3058

Selvatica is a specialty coffee roaster in Melbourne’s north, offering beautiful blends alongside a stunning selection of indoor plants for sale.

A coffee roaster, a horticulturist and a latin percussionist walk into a bar… Ok, not quite the total story, but close enough.

Selvatica is a family affair. We’ve pulled together our skills and passions in coffee roasting and horticulture to create Selvatica — a cosy Coburg oasis to feed your caffeine and plant addictions.​ They are specialty coffee roasters. Selvatica coffee is roasted in-house at 54 Gaffney Street, Coburg North. Here, you can sit and enjoy a freshly brewed cup or buy your bags of roasted coffee beans to take home.

They currently offer two blends and a rotation of single origins, with all of our green beans meticulously selected to reflect the flavours they are searching for. They use a small roaster so they can maintain complete control, and love nothing more than experimenting with different beans and roasting profiles to find delicious new flavours for you.​
