Single Origin Las Cuevitas, Guatemala

Industry Beans Specialty Coffee Roasters Best Brunch Cafe Fitzroy Melbourne

This microlot is from one of the most progressive coffee operations in Guatemala; Finca La Bolsa. The farm is located in the highlands of Huehuetenango, close to the border with Mexico. The first coffee tree was planted by Dr. Jorge Vides Molina in 1958, the farm was given its name ‘La Bolsa’ because of the location between large mountains and cliffs. They have their own spring water and two rivers running across the property which leaves an island where they are able to dry their coffee as well as accommodating a coffee mill, school and first aid training. Today, María Elena Vides de Ovalle and her son Renardo own and manage the farm this pride.

We are finding notes of lemon slice, white grape and nectarine. It has lovely elegance and a residual vanilla sweetness. Las Cuevitas acts with great beauty across many different brew methods.

You can purchase this elegant single origin on our online store until the morning of Friday the 19th of may.

Autumn is here


Autumn '17


Looking for a cure for those fresh early mornings? We have blended two of our favourite coffees to bring you our best seasonal roast yet. 

Black Lion from Ethiopia is an origin with lovely sweetness and dominant fruit notes. We mix this with one of our favourite washed Colombian lots called Cauca, which adds a vanilla sweetness and orange acidity that makes this seasonal blend perfect for both black and milk coffees. 

Only available for the next 3 months! Head over to our online store to help keep your autumn toasty and caffeinated.

Industry Beans x Billy Van Creamy

Our old mates at Billy Van Creamy continue to bring the goods! Our affogato uses the Fitzroy Street Blend, poured over a soft and creamy espresso flavoured ice cream. The smooth coffee flavours compliment with the cold sweetness of handmade espresso ice-cream, which melts into creamy-milky goodness. 

 Oh and make sure you pop-in to their new pop-up in Collingwood for the next few weeks and pick up an Espresso cone!

Summer '16 has arrived

It's the best time of year and to make your summer all the better we present


Created to reflect the current season, Summer from Industry Beans blends two exceptional coffees together.

Tade Guji from Ethiopia is an origin with lovely sweetness and dominant tropical notes. We mix this with one of our favourite washed Tanzanian lots called Tweega AA, which adds a citrus complexity and a vibrancy perfect for the warm weather. The result is a hugely satisfying coffee, with a crisp acidity and sweet body that drinks well black and with milk.

We're thinking STRAWBERRY, PAPAYA and MEYER LEMON is a perfect combo for those warm summer mornings.

Available instore and online now!
