Those over in Melbourne or Sydney will argue that they have the best coffee culture. However, Perth coffee culture has been on the rise for some time with no slowdown in sight. Largely due to the isolation of WA, Perth began its own venture into an independent coffee culture. Cafes began popping up at every turn to keep up with the demand.
It’s never been about just having a cup of coffee to perk up though. While it is true that nearly 50% of people in WA tend to drink their coffee in the morning, the quality of the coffee truly matters. Thankfully, we’ve all moved away from the instant variety and found the kind of joyous love that only a cup of fresh-brewed coffee can bring.
However, not everyone has the time or money to frequent the local café for a fresh-brewed cup of quality coffee each day. That doesn’t mean Perthians must end their love for good coffee, or worse, revert to instant varieties when preparing coffee at home for themselves in the morning or after a meal with guests.
Perth Coffee Exchange makes it possible to brew like a barista in your own home every day. You can experience Perth’s coffee culture home delivered to your door with a fantastic subscription or one off purchase. That doesn’t mean you have to end your love affair with your favourite café, but rather supplement that love by getting purely Perth-produced coffee beans and the tools you need to brew it up expertly.
It all began with Andy and Jon Carlin who had their own love of specialty roasted coffee beans. Knowing they weren’t the only coffee lovers in Perth, they pondered the idea of bringing that Perth coffee culture into the home. With two young kids at home and the inability to always get out into the cafés for specialty roasted coffee, the two quickly created a brilliant plan.
Perth coffee culture is a lot like wine culture. It’s not simply just perking up with a cup of coffee to roll out the day. It’s about sharing that warmth in a cup, truly savouring that toasty roasted flavour that quality coffee is all about. Unfortunately, if you don’t have loads of time though, you can’t get around to trying all the finest coffee beans there are in Western Australia. Andy and Jon wanted to take that Perth coffee culture and bring it home with the convenience of receiving locally-produced coffee with quality products to brew it perfectly in your own home.
From your morning cup before jetting out the door to a premium brew that enlivens your guests after a robust meal, your subscription or purchase allows you the chance to sample the best of Western Australia’s coffee.
What sets it apart is that you can select the right size fit for your needs. If you’re more of a casual coffee drinker who perhaps doesn’t have it every day, you might opt for the entry level option where you’ll get one 250g bag of quality coffee delivered per month. For moderate coffee drinkers that need their daily coffee fix and entertain friends and family weekly, you’ll get two 250g bags to try each month. The coffee socialite is for those that aren’t alone in their daily coffee consumption, providing four 250g bags per month.
If a coffee subscription is not for you then you can choose the Perth Coffee Tour offering you a one off selection of artisan Perth coffee roasters in the one box. Boxes are made up of 250g bags from different roasters and you simply choose the size of the box from 500g, 1kg and 1.5kg options.
You’re not stuck with one type of coffee constantly but rather, you get to try the huge variety of coffees that come from different roasters in WA like Little Owl, The Margaret River Roasting Company, Stash Coffee, and Beck and Call Coffee, for example. This gives you more variety than visiting your local café, as good as it may be. It allows you to try them all without going far to find your next great cup.
If you find you have a favourite, you can customize your monthly subscription to deliver your top choice. It’s very versatile, allowing you the chance to bring more of Perth’s best coffee into your favourite mug at home.
Additionally, if you have a friend or family member that also worships Perth’s coffee culture, you can easily treat them to a beautiful gift they’ll treasure. Perth Coffee Exchange has a great selection of gift boxes, including ones that have a French press or a stovetop espresso so they won’t ever have to have instant coffee at home.
Bring Perth’s coffee culture into your home every day with Perth Coffee Exchange. Simply sign up, then choose your coffee experience or request your favourite beans to be delivered. Once your whole gourmet coffee beans arrive, grind them up and enjoy brewing coffee the way it was meant to be enjoyed, like a true Perthian would. You’ll be supporting local producers to keep the Perth coffee culture alive and well, even when you decide to brew up your own fresh cup every morning!
