About Us

 

From Humble Beginnings

Welcome to Arrosta Coffee Roasting Co, your number one supplier for all things coffee. The Arrosta team are dedicated to supplying you the very best of freshly roasted coffee beans, coffee related products and accessories with a focus on uncompromising flavour, consistent quality and exceptional customer service.

Founded in 2005 by Simon and Kirsty Fowler, Arrosta Coffee Roasting Co has come a long way from its modest beginnings in a small warehouse facility in Palmerston North, New Zealand.  When Simon and Kirsty first started out, their passion for bringing quality specialty coffee to the Palmerston North market drove them to quit their day jobs, equip themselves with knowledge, gain valuable industry experience, and invest in traditional roasting equipment so as to produce a market leading product.  This gave them the impetus to turn hard work and inspiration into an internationally recognised product and a booming online store.

We now serve customers all over New Zealand, Australia and into the United States and are thrilled to be a part of the forever changing, socially aware, yet quirky scene of the global specialty coffee industry.

Arrosta Coffee Roasting Co. roasts specialty coffee, and distributes quality roasted coffee beans, espresso machines, barista equipment, training, service & supplies to wholesale customers and for the domestic market. We are a NZ company proudly owned and operating for more than 11 years from one of the best places in New  Zealand - the mighty Manawatu!

Our Coffee

To ensure our coffee keeps pace with the ever changing and rapidly improving market, Arrosta Coffee has exceptionally high product standards.  Our supplier partners are chosen to work with us to ensure our high expectations of a quality product and a passion for excellence are consistently met. 

All our coffee is roasted in classical roasting equipment with de-stoners to ensure an even and consistent roast. Arrosta Coffee is origin roasted then blended post roast to produce exquisitely balanced and well rounded espresso.
