Best Coffees of 2021

Updated: Mar 16

Hey coffee lovers 2021 was another crazy year filled with uncertainty and 2022 appears to be off to a cracker.


The good news is through all of this we still get to enjoy amazing coffee beans!


Last year we expanded our range with some exciting new local roasters coming on board and plenty of new coffees were added.


Out of the 20+ local roasters we partner with there were a few standouts that had our coffee community coming back for more.


We are thrilled to announce the Perth Coffee Exchange Coffee Awards for 2021 in the categories of best individual coffees, best overall roaster and best tasting box of 2021, as chosen by our incredible community of coffee lovers!


We are excited to be sharing these amazing local coffees with you.
