Brookvale’s Danes Specialty Coffee named Australia’s best coffee roaster

Brookvale coffee roaster, Danes Specialty Coffee, has been named Champion Australian Roaster for the second year running at the Australian International Coffee Awards (AICA). The awards, held by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), attract entries from all over the world, with over 805 entries from 151 local and international coffee roasters.

“For more than 20 years we’ve built strong relationships throughout our supply chain, from grower to barista, to ensure we can extract the best possible flavour from the beans. To be recognised two years in a row at one of the specialty coffee industry’s most highly regarded awards is a tremendous validation of the effort our whole team puts in,” said Paul Jackson, managing director and owner, Danes.

“As a proud northern beaches business, we’re thrilled to be able to say that Australia’s best coffee is roasted right here in Brookvale and served at cafes across the peninsula and beyond.”

Danes prides itself on exceptional consistency across its product range, with high standards to ensure only the most character-filled beans make it to the consumer. Danes sources the best coffee cherries from across the globe, roasts them with care to bring out the best attributes for each origin, blends with precision, and matches to the most suitable brewing method for each product.

  • Gold for its Ascension blend in the espresso blend category
  • Gold for its Kenya Gakundu in the pour over single origin category
  • Silver for its Kenya Ndiaini in the cold brew coffee category

The judging took place over three days in March at the Melbourne Showgrounds. Head Judge Melissa Caia commended the high standards of entries in all categories, with over 330 medals awarded.
