The Manuka Brothers

Driven by a passion for coffee and an inspired idea to build a roaster with a difference, Graeme and Tyson designed and built a beautifully engineered machine fondly known as 'Black Betty'. By batch roasting coffee over the glowing embers of Manuka wood, a distinctive warm, sweet and complex flavour is created. The coffee roasted from this machine has a range of flavours not found in regular gas-fired roasters.

Black Betty is fired up every week to bring you fresh, batch roasted, delicious coffee.

The boys spent time developing and refining the different roasts, to ensure a product they are proud of. There is much excitement surrounding Manuka Brothers' Coffee; the quality of this product is taking coffee to the next level.

Exciting news!! Our headquarters (roastary and cafe bar) is finally open to the public each week day from 6am to 2pm. This has been a long time coming and has become a regular destination for a growing number of people. Tyson has left his job as a plumber/gasfitter and is now living his dream of roasting and extracting great coffee full-time. Barasta and management duties are shared by both Liz and Tyson. Pop in and grab a shot along with a slice or item from our constantly evolving, yummy menu. See the facebook feed below.
