Lets have fun and make a difference!

Thats my approach to building my company and passion project, BlueBird Coffee Roastery. 

Coffee is beautiful. Whether connecting friends at a cafe, caffeinating a long day at the office or the creative hobby of the home barista, it plays a major role in our day to day. My goal is to help you understand it better, to give you access to quality coffee normally only sold abroad and to connect you to the people who farmed and produced it. 

I believe that everyday, in our individual lives and careers, we make decisions which either harm or help. In every step I take in growing our company, I aim to make the often hard(expensive) but correct decisions which are better for people, environment, quality and then profit. That is why we buy the coffees we do in the way that we do. Generously, with line of sight to the farms and producers and with the intention of building long term, meaningful relationships.

I want to thank you for choosing to buy our coffee.

You are awesome…

Our roastery is situated in the beautiful KZN Midlands, more specifically, in a restored mushroom tunnel in Karkloof. 

We are quality obsessed which drives us to source, import, roast and sell some of the best coffees we can find. We work with amazing farmers and producers who share our vision and we are continuously improving.

Our new coffee bar will allow us to share some exclusive lots with you the way we feel best represents the coffees. But our primary focus will remain on serving our wholesale and home user customers the best we can.
