Whether hand roasted, drum roasted, locally sourced or cafe brewed - the key to Waikato artisan coffee making is unlocking the flavour and personality of each bean. Artisan coffee makers in Waikato have one thing in common: producing high quality coffee in every brew for a range of coffee types.
Rocket Coffee Roasters doesn’t simply roast coffee, it tells a story, and more importantly it allows the coffee to tell its own story. That is what the co-founder, Greg Compton intended when he opened the very first Rocket Coffee café in 1995. Roasting coffee and providing locals with a brew from the other side of the world is more about sharing aromatic cups of coffee, it’s about exploring different cultures, making memories and enjoying incredible flavours. Rocket Coffee roasts a variety of coffee beans from Africa and Latin America by using modern techniques that harness age-old traditions ensuring full flavours, rich aromas and coffee that can’t be found anywhere else.
