Roaster: Rene Macaulay is the Chairman for the New Zealand Roasters Guild and the Head Roaster for Peoples Coffee. Rene is a Peoples Coffee veteran of eight years and when he’s not roasting up a storm or visiting cooperatives at coffee origin, you might find him tending his bees, building an ingenious contraption, or indulging his excellent taste in music.

Roaster: Kokako

Kōkako Organic Coffee is roasted in Auckland by our Head Roaster Sam McTavish. He roasts on a state of the art 25kg Probat roaster from Germany and is passionate about the craft of roasting and tasting coffee, with a depth of knowledge that spans the journey from crop to cup. 

Quality is paramount to us. We work with various cooperatives and traders to source high quality green beans from specific origins where the flavour profiles match our expectations for a consistently well rounded cup of coffee that tastes exceptional.

We support this with third party Fairtrade and organic certification from Fairtrade New Zealand and Biogro NZ. Relationships throughout the supply chain are paramount to us – from the grower, to the co-op, traders,  certifiers, then to our roaster and our customers.

We cup our coffee twice a week at our dedicated roastery in Mt Eden – this ensures that every origin we buy and roast lives up to our exacting quality standards
