When your caffeine cravings hit, get these specialty coffee beans delivered to your doorstep.
With more time spent inside, a lot of us have invested in 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, Sydney is home to an abundance of roasters who will deliver coffee beans to your door with just a click of a button. Discover where our favourite coffee beans are from below!
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. The online store offers all their signature blends with detailed tasting notes for your reference. Our favourite beans are the Paradox, YEEHAH! and we’ve recently been impressed by their new Double Jab. Order online here for next-day delivery!
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. 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 House Blend but they’ve also got a great range of Single Origin available.

Sample is another ethical coffee maker. They have scored a B Corp certification which highlights their efforts to operate to high social and environmental standards. When shopping online, you will notice one-to-three scores for acidity and body which makes it easy to find a coffee to suit your tastes. They also have a great selection of brew kits and tools. When in doubt, we’d choose the Pacemaker, their year-round house blend. Order online here
The Reformatory Lab
The Reformatory Lab is definitely the coolest looking coffee roastery in Sydney and they have incredible beans to match. They’ve got all their regular blends available online as well as cool merch. Order online here
The Little Marionette
From humble beggings, The Little Marionette team has grown into a specialty roaster at the forefront of the Australian coffee industry. What sets them apart is that they manually roast all the beans using a refurbished 1930’s Probat roaster which gives the beans their distinct flavour. Order online here
Although these guys have a number of roasteries across 5 different countries, we couldn’t not include them in the list. Allpress has a roastery in Zetland which provides coffee beans to all the Sydney stockists. I always like to say that if you don’t know what you’re doing behind the machine, go for Allpress beans because it’s hard to make them taste bad. They’ve also just launched coffee capsule pods for all you Nespresso fans. Order online here
Will & Co
With headquarters in Bondi Beach, we couldn’t forget to mention Will & Co. The team has four signature specialty blends pouring daily at cafes across Australia. These beans are best for milk coffee drinkers, those who like smooth, milky blends. They are currently offering 30% off all online purchases with code ‘LOCKDOWN’ . Order online here
This Canberra-based roaster opened its doors in Marrickville in 2018. They offer a wide range of origin countries and Single Origin to suit your tastes, including the fancifully named Cherry Pie, Choc Banoffee Pie and Raspberry Candy. Order online here
Stitch Coffee has proved to be one of the best brews in Sydney since the roastery opened in Alexandria in 2015. The brand is owned and operated by coffee veteran Nawar Adra (ex-Circa Espresso and Brewtown Newtown). You can order all of their signature blends online as well as their organic tea range if you need to lay off the caffine. Order online here
