Our Coffee ‘RAKU’

In early 2016 Karen de Lautour was searching for a great flavoured coffee to serve to her customers in her cafe – she grew frustrated with the commercial blends and decided to create her own. By the end of 2016 ‘Raku’ was chosen as a stand out blend. Blending and micro roasting in small batches, Karen ensures her coffee remains delicious, consistent and fresh.

Unique Blends and Flavours

Our Raku blend was developed after micro roasting and taste testing a range of high quality beans with super experienced coffee aficionados. It’s a unique, quality blend of South American and East African flavours including a good dollop of Brazilian, Colombian & Kenyan beans. This infusion creates a great bodied coffee that is smooth to the palate and leaves a delicious, lingering taste.

Come in and experience the buzz of choosing your own unique blend for us to micro roast for you. Watching the process unfold, is as entertaining as it is mesmerising. We will step you through each phase, including grinding it for you if that’s how you need it. Relax and have a coffee and a chat while you watch.

We are continuing to develop and expand our own in-house blends range to reflect the unique flavours of plantations around the world. Watch this space as new blends emerge!

Consistent Blends

Micro roasting enables our beans to be roasted much more evenly that larger roasters. The small batch size allows for a more even heat transfer and air flow through the beans, which creates a super consistent, high quality bean roast.

Because the roast size is small, it also means we can roast to meet demand, with out having excess beans left over, which is a by product of a large roasters. We only roast as many batches as we need which ensures the freshness of our blends are second to none.

Sustainable Beans & Packaging

While it’s currently a bit of trend – and rightly so – sustainability has always been a natural way of life for most New Zealanders. Growing up in typical kiwi fashion back in the day when you went diving for crays, caught fresh fish from your own dingy, wiggled your toes in the sand for pipis, and picked lettuces from your own vege garden daily, food was super fresh and packaging free.

Organic wasn’t even a word associated with chemical free food. Food just happened.

Our Raku beans still just happen. They’re nurtured by nature without chemicals and kissed by the rain and the sun naturally. They are then caressed by bio packaging and cups once roasted. The packaging has been crafted with care so our beans reach you in top notch condition. You can toss the packing into your bin carefree because it decomposes quickly and naturally.

I like the smooth texture of Raku coffee and that it just keeps on coming!.
