A Little Bit of History

We have been roasting coffee in Northbridge since 1936, when a “real” cup of coffee was considered a rare and exotic commodity. Our journey from humble corner store to state-of-the-art Probat roasting facility has seen us remain leaders in our field. We craft roast daily, creating the ultimate coffee experience and up-holding a family tradition that started more than half a century ago.

1936

The Braziliano Coffee label was created by founder John Re with 1-2kg batches of traditional Italian style coffee roasted weekly, in an era when a ‘real' cup of coffee was considered a rare and exotic commodity in Australia.

1960

Continuing to roast at European Foods Wholesalers new Northbridge location, the range of coffees now includes four Braziliano blends and the first Leonardo Coffee varieties roasted in a new 25kg Probat roaster.

1980

Specialty coffee popularity continues to grow with an upgrade to a 35kg Probat roaster to keep up with demand. Silvana Finest Quality Arabica Coffee was launched in 1989, as the ‘Roasters Blend’ and the choice of fine-dining coffee connoisseurs. A second 25kg Probat roaster was installed.

1999

Launch of the Braziliano Coffee SuperBarista Education Facility to facilitate a commitment to excellence in barista artistry and coffee culture. Then in 2003 announced the launch of the inaugural Braziliano SuperBarista of the Year Award, the first competition to provide WA baristas the opportunity to be assessed against world standards and show off their innovativeness.

2008

Enters the AASCA Hall of Fame as one of John Re’s granddaughters, Catherine Ferrari wins the Australian Coffee Cup Tasting Championship and goes on to represent Australia at the World Coffee Cup Tasting Championship, in Copenhagen, Denmark. In 2010 The International Taste and Quality Institute in Brussels, Belgium awards the Silvana Finest Arabica Coffee range for its remarkable high quality.

2011

Our facilities undergo a multi-million dollar upgrade to create the roastery’s unique position as being one of the best resourced and largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, (combining artisan and state of the art methods) setting a worldwide standard for best practices.

2013

The Northbridge Coffee Roasters is created as a distinct entity to recognise our heritage, significant resources and long-term commitment to specialty coffee and to cement our role as a leader and innovator within the WA coffee industry. The following year, the addition of The Northbridge Coffee Roasters Microlot Selection range marked a new chapter for The Roasters in our pursuit of coffee perfection.
