Adrianne & David are ORGANIC FAIRTRADE single origin coffee roasters, with an incredible love of sharing knowledge. Based at 'TOTOKA’ organic urban farm Adelaide Hills, we run multiple businesses from our funky farm, one being... EXTRACT BLACK COFFEE ROASTING CO. We are a standout coffee wholesaler due to combining all our life experiences and passionately using it in all aspects COFFEE! We are proud that within South Australia we have a wonderful selection of coffee roasters. We are a family of 5 passionate about local produce, small business, preserving our stunning native habitat and ALL THINGS COFFEE!
Our passion for coffee started when both Adrianne and David worked in CBD in the education department and police, frequenting the gorgeous 'Kappy's and Wright' sadly no longer in the stunning Flinders Street building. The open vintage roaster was often operated by an elderly gentleman and the aroma turned Adrianne, whom did not drink coffee, curious and thus her hand into a coffee connoisseur. David already a coffee lover, commenced a journey into single origins and the profiles.
From here they commenced their entrepreneur journey and opened a new bakehouse 'BAKERS EDGE' in Henley Square 2006, serving 'Adelaide Hills Coffee Roasters' Coffee learning a wealth of info about coffee from crop to cup including latte art, from both Helen and Chris! When we moved our bakehouse in 2011 to a larger site at West Beach, we knew a roastery and cafe was a must, developing a standout open viewing bakehouse, coffee roastery AND mini art gallery all in one! After learning from a couple gorgeous souls all things coffee roasting here in Adelaide and a few interstate artisan roasters, we commenced roasting from 'Bakers Edge' in 2012 going on to launch our second coffee brand 'EXTRACT BLACK COFFEE ROASTING CO.' in 2016. However, a burning desire to travel Australia with our 3 sons turned to reality when we sold our retail 'Bakers Edge Bakehouse and Coffee Roastery' West Beach in March 2017 and travelled the remainder of year. End of 2017 we returned to Adelaide purchasing our urban farm in which to this day we passionately create our dream into reality!
Extract Black roastery is located on our own urban farm in Adelaide Hills which we are proudly 100% organic. Zero chemical sprays (yep we weed by hand). Our passion for organic produce flows through to our coffee, hence we ONLY roast Certified Organic COFFEE, reflecting the essence of coffee…seasonal and so many profiles! All our coffee is fairtrade whereby the farmers are rightfully and fairly paid for their wonderful produce. We try and be as gentle to our beautiful earth as possible and recycle/reuse…our bulk buy ‘rebound buckets’ and fully reusable retail, compostable packaging. We may be young in this business but we are ‘old’ IN business…we understand through our experiences how various businesses can work and how we wish to evolve ‘EB’ is with a very personal touch!
WE ARE MORE THAN COFFEE... We also offer a selection of 'MASTERCLASSES' from crop to cup online FUNDAMENTALS to BARISTA masterclass to TASTING experiences. We also offer business mentoring, farm mindfulness and more, all of which is 'detailed' on Adrianne's business website www.adrianneskye.com.
