Carlini Coffee is a multi-award winning specialty coffee roaster based in Melbourne, Australia – although we stopped competing more than 6 years ago when it became a “check book facade”.
We are not a small or micro-roaster company- in fact by volume we sit in the top 20 – yet, we remain flexible enough to customize solutions to meet just about any roasted coffee requirement whether it’s beans, ground, ESE pods or Nespresso capsules – we do it all in-house and that’s a key point of difference to our competitors. We can grind more than 500kg of coffee per day under strict temperature controls, ensuring exceptional quality outcomes
Did we mention that we are also amazingly fast !
Our facilities are specially engineered industrial Tier-1 – 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, fully owned by Carlini. That’s a multi-million dollar investment, even before kitting out any infrastructure. When looking for a new partner for coffee supply partner, we suggest that you ensure security of the long-term supply by checking whether your prospective supplier owns their facility, or rents……..it can make a difference in terms of enhancements and continuity.
Whilst not a shop-front, nor a small retail business, we roast coffee as an industrial manufacturing operation using specialist equipment, systems and processes to offer a range of dynamic and competitive solutions for customers seeking quality outcomes in the cup.
In order to prepare a consistently quality coffee outcome, a true life cycle management approach is needed at every stage – from the original sourcing of raw coffees, storage in climate controlled environment, expert precision roasting, accurate packaging and rapid distribution – every step and process has quality metrics that are measured, managed and optimized continuously.
You simply don’t get that same level of care or focus from a micro-roaster that is operating from a small shop or facility, or from a vast array or new brands/suppliers that recently entered the Australian coffee industry – most lack knowledge and experience for running enterprise grade coffee business.
With so many suppliers of roasted coffee, it’s important to keep your product evolving, improving at all times to stay ahead of the competition. Otherwise, high expectations and the fickle or fussy tastes from sophisticated Australian coffee drinkers will look elsewhere.
We use premium-grade Arabica coffees specifically sourced over 38 years of buying coffees. Our range of quality Single Origin coffees – from carefully selected small micro lots, single estate coffees exhibiting exceptional characteristics, traceable Rainforest Alliance certified, FAIRTRADE certified and a range of highly-ranked specialty lots for specific requirements.
Our solutions are not suited to everyone – therefore as a general rule, we don’t engage with clients seeking low quality offering as we know from experience that poor tasting coffees from cheapest ingredients and sourcing do not sell well in the Australia market place, regardless of the domain or circumstances.
You can appreciate that nobody wants to be left stranded with unsold raw coffee, therefore we would politely decline any “race to the bottom” price challenge – cheap coffees using cheap ingredients are a high risk environment and these sort of engagements are only possible where the client agrees to purchase the raw coffees upfront, reducing the risks.
In life, you get what you pay for and in the coffee industry there are no secret methods, formulas or hidden gems that can be leveraged or exploited to deliver a material advantage over another supplier – it all comes down to the quality/cost of ingredients and supplier skills.
Our roasting experts have been working with coffees for more than 38 years regarded as the best in the business. We have skin in the game and that’s a critical difference to most other companies that employ staff working standard hours each day.
We are happy to talk and work with companies, brands and cafes that successfully demonstrate an ongoing commitment to quality coffee. For these clients we can deliver exception value by focusing on a better grade of raw coffee prepared at a competitive price point and more importantly our skills at consistency remain unmatched.
Those clients that desire something unique and distinctive (which by the way is getting harder to achieve in the coffee market), allows us to apply 38+ years of coffee experience in designing a customized solution for your coffee needs.
Most importantly, we offer total discretion in our dealings with every customer – 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 – at all time, our services remain confidential.
All our coffees are prepared using precise profiling on our best-in-class, fully computerized, modern roasting equipment. Our infrastructure is fully redundant and considered among the best in Australia – ultra clean, cool, controlled and always precisely accurate.
We roast 5 days a week, every week, 52 weeks a year – it never stops and we maintain our faultless record in daily shipments of fresh roasted coffee beans to customers all around Australia – there is no such thing as a 3 day lead time for us – you order it today it’s ready tomorrow – custom roasted, custom packaged and custom delivered in record time.
