THE JOURNEY SO FAR
Over the last two decades, a wave of coffee roasters across the globe, known as the Third Wave, redefined ideas about sourcing, roasting and brewing coffee. Abandoning old approaches, these pioneers saw coffee as a natural product with many possibilities, recognising that different varietals, growing conditions, processing methods and brewing techniques could each yield something distinctive in the final cup.
Inspired by this movement, brothers Steven and Trevor Simmons founded Industry Beans in Melbourne in 2010. Their vision was to roast high-quality specialty coffee in a carefully curated environment of transparency and accessibility, to offer the ultimate coffee experience to their community.
In 2013 they opened the first Industry Beans venue: an all-under-one roof coffee roastery and brew bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne. There, they won over coffee lovers and everyday brunch-goers alike, becoming internationally recognised for their innovative approaches to coffee roasting and commitment to creating unique hospitality experiences.
After ten years, Industry Beans has grown to now roast coffee and operate cafes in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Every Industry Beans venue is unique to its location and community, and share the same commitment to quality, transparency and accessibility upon which the business was founded.
