Originally established in 2002 in a very small shop further down The Strand business area from its current site, “The Bean” Purveyors of Fine Coffee and Coffee Beans is currently owned by Kevin and Akiko Hayter.
Now Kevin is The Bean’s Chief Roaster and roasting coffee Beans is his passion.
We roast beans from 6 different countries and blend them into four quite distinctly different flavours.
All four blends can be purchased as whole beans or ground to your personal requirements, so you can enjoy great coffee right at home. “Many of the best eateries in the district and throughout New Zealand are also serving our coffee to their diners”.
We operate a “La San Marco Leva Espresso” machine, one of only two manual coffee espresso machines in New Zealand this process is totally manual allowing us to maximize the flavour extracted from our own and exclusive new unique coffee blends.
The main aim for Kevin, Aki and the crew is for you to enjoy the best flavours’ in a relaxed atmosphere.
It’s all about the coffee
