Hello and welcome to the new holding site for Eighthirty Coffee Roasters.  There's a season for everything, and we felt the season for the old site had come to an end. So, while we're dreaming up the next official website, we wanted to give people the chance to have a better shopping experience, have access to more brewing equipment and of course some beautiful coffee. 

Suffice it to say, we're going through a bit of change here at eighthirty. We've managed to build a pretty nice foundation (which we will be sure not to mess with) and now its time to build and grow. We can't wait to share those changes with everyone in good time.

Until then, we hope you enjoy the new shopping experience, improved access to your favourite eighthirty coffee, plus some extra special stuff.


The Eighthirty Team.
