What We Do
Some further details about what we do
Thanks for dropping by to learn more about us.
Carlini Coffee is a multi-award-winning coffee roaster based in Melbourne, Australia operating exclusively in the specialty coffee segment since 2007.
Whilst neither a small nor a micro-roaster sized company, we are larger than medium in a market of 2000+.
In fact, it may come as a surprise to learn where we sit by volume in the Australian coffee industry.
So we think it could almost be a perfect size to provide that ideal balance between consistency and flexibility.
Whether it's fresh roasted quality whole beans, ground, ESE pods or Nespresso original/classic capsules.
Unlike many other coffee brands, we do everything in-house. Controlling the entire end-to-end quality lifecycle is super-important for success.
We can offer up to 1.5 tons per day of roasting and packaging (depending upon pack types) plus over 500kg per day of grinding (packed in bulk only).
All our coffee products are manufactured under strict temperature controls to ensure the highest quality outcomes.
Did we also mention that we are amazingly fast !
Our facilities are specially engineered industrial Tier-1. Deliberately designed as superior to the majority of our peers or competitors in the coffee industry.
This enables us to apply extreme levels of focus on quality across our three(3) purpose built sites in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, all fully owned by Carlini.
Enterprise clients demand high levels of consistency and security of supply.
To ensure we can keep on supplying, we have business continuity arrangements in place for almost non-stop availability levels.
Our quality management involves every stage of the product lifecycle. For sure, these days everyone must do it.
All our raw coffees are sourced from approved, Australian-based QA-certified brokers. We don't buy cheap junk, nor do we buy old, stale or distressed inventory.
Raw coffees are stored in a climate controlled environment.
When it comes time to roast, we use our expert precision industrial-scale automation to roast accurately.
Roasted coffees are then packaging and rapid distribution.
Each step and process has it's own quality metrics which are measured, managed and optimized continuously.
You simply don't get that same level of expertise, experience or consistency from small roasters operating from a shop or limited facility.
With so many suppliers of roasted coffee, it's important to keep your product evolving.
We think that you need to improve at all times in order to stay ahead of the competition.
Only Specialty Grade
Whilst this statement is not intended to be any form of criticism, most of the larger private label and contract roasting companies play at the bottom-end of the coffee quality segment.
Think cheap, commodity/commercial grades mass produced by volume.
That's an environment where a difference of 50 cents per kilo can make a huge impact upon their profitability.
The only way to survive in that segment is by scale and efficiency and sourcing the cheapest. It's a game of always making concessions.
Instead of racing to the bottom, Carlini Coffee has a different strategy.
We focus on the quality segment for clients seeking a better performing coffee product.
Today, in what is now a highly competitive Australian retail coffee market it's more important than ever to have a great tasting coffee for sale.
Our range of quality Single Origin coffees is curated from carefully selected small micro lots, single estate coffees that exhibit exceptional characteristics.
We also hold a range of traceable Rainforest Alliance and Organic certified specialty lots for specific client requirements.
Privacy and Confidentiality
Carlini Coffee offers total discretion in our dealings with every client.
Your brand and business is important and you don't want someone hijacking that success with their own marketing initiatives or agenda around self-promotion.
So this means at all times, our services and facility remain secure and confidential. We certainly won't share our business arrangements with anyone and we don't use social media.
No visitors or members of the public are allowed into our premises with prior authorisation.
You can be assured of complete privacy.
