Coffee Supreme Brookvale
This fan-favourite New Zealand coffee roaster has just opened its first Sydney cafe and roastery.
May 17, 2022
Over the last couple of years while getting your morning cup of joe at cafes around Sydney, you may have spotted a bag of beans emboldened with bright red text behind the counter. Originating in New Zealand, Coffee Supreme's beans and instant coffee are available in locations across the country and are used in Sydney favourites including Paramount Recreation Club and Deus Ex Machina.
While you can find Supreme beans in dozens of cafes across Australia and New Zealand, the coffee brewer also has its own cafes and roasteries, with five in New Zealand, one in Brisbane, one in Melbourne, one in Tokyo and now, one in Sydney.
Sydney's first Coffee Supreme opened in early 2022 in the northern beaches. Located on Mitchell Road in the industrial area of Brookvale, the venue has converted a warehouse into a bustling cafe, decorated with touches of forest green and Coffee Supreme's signature red. Alongside the cafe is a 12-kilogram Probat roaster, making coffee on-site to be delivered to cafes and homes around the city.
"We don't like to favour one city over the other, but the growing coffee culture in Sydney is really exciting, so the search to grow our presence here has been on for a few months now," Coffee Supreme's Sydney and Canberra Sales and Customer Development Manager Jen Le says. "When we visited 11 Mitchell Rd, we knew it was the site for us — heaps of natural light, sufficient space for a roaster and most importantly, a strong sense of community; a key pillar at Coffee Supreme."
At the heart of the venue is, of course, the coffee. The baristas are taking Coffee Supreme beans and turning them into espresso, batch brew and cold filter. Alongside the classic beans on offer, there will also be seasonal blends that pop-up as they become available.
Food-wise, there's an all-day breakfast menu available until the cafe closes at 2pm. Avocado on toast, bagels and bacon and egg rolls are all here. For lunch, you can also nab an array of burgers and sandwiches. If you're looking to tuck into something heartier, turn your attention to the bolognese toastie.
