Perth Coffee Exchange - The beginning

Perth Coffee Exchange - The beginning

Coffee is more than just a taste, it's an experience that can be shared with friends and loved ones. There are few things more satisfying than sharing an interesting story over a fresh cup of joe. I'm sure you have all had some great coffee chats over the years as well!

So, I thought I would share with you my own story and that of how Perth Coffee Exchange was born.

Coffee is the lifeblood of many people's days - both those who need some time to themselves and those looking forward with eager anticipation as they sip their morning cup.

Coffee has always been an important part of life in my family and became even more so when in 2017 Andy and I found ourselves in that great part of life with 2 beautiful young girls under 3, Zoe and Pippa.

As lovers of coffee, we always enjoyed exploring the array of great coffee shops around Perth however we suddenly found ourselves drinking more coffee at home. Andy and I have always been adventurous, so when we discovered this home coffee ritual thing it was like discovering an entire new world for us.

We set about mixing up our newfound "routine-based" days with some adventure by looking to explore Perth’s coffee scene for great locally roasted beans to add into our daily grinds. We loved the idea of how each week could be different from the last one by exploring the amazing coffees on offer!

With so much diversity out there, we found it difficult searching online for coffee beans as there was no single place where we could go. We spent lots of time and energy trying to find new coffees and reliable recommendations to no avail.

And so, Perth Coffee Exchange was born.

A platform that connects home coffee lovers to the local coffee scene. We started our coffee business with 6 coffee roasters and 10 different varieties in 2018. In 2022, we have grown to be Perth’s leading online coffee website. Featuring coffee beans from 21+ of the best and upcoming local roasters!

In 2021, I retired from the WA Police so that my energy could be focused on Perth Coffee Exchange and spending time guiding Zoe and Pippa through early school life.

Perth Coffee Exchange is a passionate community of coffee lovers who are appreciate great coffee. We believe in supporting our local coffee roasters who are dedicated to sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans. We believe that drinking great coffee is a unique experience that should be savoured and enjoyed.

We are constantly exploring the incredible variety of coffees on offer, and we are always looking for new and exciting coffees to try.

The future is bright for coffee in Perth and with the recent growth of our community and more people becoming aware, we hope that there will be an even greater interest from the coffee lovers of Perth. We want them to experience how much fun it is!
