Craig, the owner of Seven Trees has had a love of coffee for most of his life. Following a hiking trip through Europe in the 90's, coffee became a passion and in 2015 he purchased a coffee vending business operating as CoffeeWorks. This business started his journey into coffee roasting with a purchase of his initial roaster in 2018.
Around the same time, he sourced some coffee trees from Queensland with the intention to plant them in the home garden. After a lengthy period of quarantine, Seven Trees remained from the batch, (out of 10!) and they were potted and well on their way to establishing themselves. Craig decided to name his roasting business Seven Trees Coffee after these initial trees. As the business grew, he decided to move more trees over to the shop, where all seven promptly died within a couple weeks of each other.
As he couldn't call the business "Seven Dead Coffee Trees" he made haste to purchase new trees, this time from a WA grower and these are still in and around the shop. They are doing very well. We have also been gifted additional coffee trees by a customer from his farm in Waroona and these have joined the mini coffee plantation in our garden area.
So when you see the name, know that there is a story behind the name, one that encompasses Craig's love for coffee and his wife's love for gardening and the love of sharing both with our cusomers.
We hope that you enjoy our coffee. The roasting is done with you in mind. We aim to provide you with a coffee that suits you personally, will give you an amazing cup of coffee and ensure that your experience in our shop is a memorable one. Enjoy!
