Whether hand roasted, drum roasted, locally sourced or cafe brewed - the key to Wanganui artisan coffee making is unlocking the flavour and personality of each bean. Artisan coffee makers in Wanganui have one thing in common: producing high quality coffee in every brew for a range of coffee types.
In 1996 Donne Mardle started the Ebony Coffee Company (then the Manawatu Coffee Roasting Company). The Roasting Company started from humble beginnings with only a 12kg Otto Swadla. Over the years Ebony Coffee Roasters have changed equipment, premises and even owners but one thing still remains – their unparalleled commitment to roasting quality coffee blends and supplying some of the region’s most aromatic, flavourful and enticing coffee roasts to keep customers coming back for more. Locals have followed this legendary coffee roaster from location to location and are more in love than ever before with the exceptional quality offered by Ebony Coffee Roasters.
