Danes Coffee Roastery Tour and Open Day
Coffee and connection are the flavour at our monthly Open Day and Roastery Tour at the Northern Beaches’ iconic Danes Specialty Coffee Brookvale HQ.
It’s a morning to experience, ask, learn and taste, to get your fill of coffee knowhow with our expert roasters and baristas, along with tips on how to make the best coffee at home with a demonstration on the latest Breville home coffee machines.
First stop is the roastery. Experience the science and art in the aromatic heart of our award winning coffee, where beans are roasted – and your morning coffee dreams are made.
Hear from our roaster about specialty coffee from source to cup, starting with our own coffee plant flourishing in Sydney’s sun, full of this season’s ripening cherries.
Next up, it’s on to our green bean room where we take you on a specialty coffee origin journey to learn about sourcing, range of processing methods (washed, natural, honey and anaerobic), and the mystery behind our award winning coffees. Watch our master roaster as he demonstrates and commentates through a coffee roast from beginning to end.
Then join us at the tasting table to try some cold brew, batch brew and get some take home sample bags of the coffee you watched us roast.
You can also enjoy our full range of coffees, sweet treats and relaxed atmosphere, and chat with our team at our Danes Drivein at the roastery.
Learn more for home, tips and tricks
Step into the showroom to get intimate with the popular Breville home espresso machines. We’ll take you through the essentials, and tips and tricks, to make barista-quality coffee at home, from grinding to dosing to texturing and perfecting your pour. Ask all your home coffee making questions, whether you already have a machine or have one on your wish list.
We also offer a comprehensive two hour Home Barista training course where you get hands on experience, guided by our expert baristas for all the detailed knowledge to develop your coffee skills. You can also sign up for our other courses to continue your coffee journey.
