The Coffee Company

 - from beans to machines and all the inbetweens -

Coffee has been around since Adam was a cowboy or, to be more precise and as legend has it, since an Ethiopian shepherd observed his herd of goats ‘dancing and frolicking in an unusual manner’ after eating the berries from shrubs which turned out to be Coffee Arabica.  The Coffee Company Ltd hasn't been around quite that long, but we have been floating around the NZ coffee scene for more than 15 years now!

Here at The Coffee Company, located in sunny Nelson, we thought it about time that New Zealanders could use and enjoy a website for all things coffee: from beans to machines, and all the in betweens. We started from small beginnings and with your help, intend to grow into a site where coffee lovers can keep up to date with new products, innovations, and much more.

Browse our online shop for some great coffee products, including coffee machines, coffee beans, coffee pods, coffee capsules and a huge range of coffee accessories. Enjoy your look around, be sure to come back soon as there will be new things happening all the time.

You can now find us based in our shop at 130 Hardy Street, stocking a wide variety of accessories and coffee related products. If you can't find what you are looking for, let us know and see if we can't find it for you.

The shelves are stocked with a huge range of our consumable products from Molinari's coffee beans, ESE coffee pods and Nespresso(R) compatible capsules, to our new Taste Italia section which includes some of our favourites from Toschi.  The immensely popular NZ range of Chai, Turmeric, Matcha and much more from Cafe King and Urban Blends is also showcased.

And let's not forget the amazing array of accessories to inspire your coffee and tea making at home, or if it's commercial you are interested in come and see us in the office and we can talk to you about the right solution for your office, cafe, bar or restaurant.
