The Best Coffee Beans In Sydney

Drink, Sydney / 20 September 2022

When your caffeine cravings hit, get these specialty coffee beans delivered to your doorstep.

Having come out the other side of lockdown after lockdown, a lot of us have invested in elaborate coffee machines or fancy pour-over kits so we can make our own brew at home. We might not know all the tricks of the trade, but if we’ve learned anything from our local baristas, it’s that quality coffee beans are a good start. Lucky, there’s no shortage of Sydney coffee roasters who will deliver coffee beans to your door with just a click of a button. Discover where you can get the best coffee beans in Sydney below!

Single O

It’s safe to say that at least one cafe in every Sydney suburb pours Single O coffee. It has been a favourite amongst Sydneysiders since the Surry Hills roastery opened in 2003, and is highly regarded for its beans. The online store offers all their signature blends with detailed tasting notes for your reference. Our favourites are the Paradox, YEEHAH! and we’ve recently been impressed by their new Double Jab. Order online here for next-day delivery!

Mecca

Mecca has been roasting coffee in the heart of Alexandria since 2005. Their mission is to source coffee ethically and share the details with the drinkers to credit the makers from the start of the process to the finished product; so you can feel extra satisfied when you drink your morning brew. You’ll be able to find the ratios of where the beans come from and the tasting notes on each bag. We can’t go past the trusty House Blend with notes of orange, honeycomb, and milk chocolate, but they’ve also got a great range of Single Origin available. Order online here.

They also have a great selection of brew kits and tools to help you create barista-grade coffee at home. When in doubt, we’d choose the Pacemaker, their year-round house blend.

What sets them apart is that they manually roast all the beans using a refurbished 1930’s Probat roaster which gives them their distinct flavour.

Allpress Espresso

Although these guys have roasteries across five different countries and you’ll find them in over 1,500 cafes worldwide, we couldn’t not include them in the list. Have you ever had an Allpress coffee you didn’t like? Neither have we. If you don’t know what you’re doing behind the machine, the Allpress beans use a winning formula that will always taste great. For the Nespresso fans, you can also pick up coffee capsules, and for the true coffee addicts, shop their Allpress concentrated coffee shots online. Did someone say Espresso Martinis?
