About DC Specialty Coffee Roasters

The low down

We are coffee roasters. We love what we do. Not just finding and roasting beans, but bringing people great coffee experiences.

We are specialty coffee roasters, but with an independent view. We are expressive. We are multidimensional. We are independent thinkers. This is where we exist.

Our approach to specialty coffee is different. We see beyond coffee culture and see coffee as a part of culture. We continue to explore different mediums that bridge the grower to the consumer to deliver the specialty coffee message. This unconventional way of doing business starts at the top, with two visionaries taking this team forward, each managing their own divisions with care. This lateral management model combines Rob Stewart and Derek Doyle’s expertise and experience to what is traditionally the top role, allowing them to share their knowledge and involvement through the entire organisation. 

Since 2002 DC has been committed to roasting specialty coffee. Specialty grade coffee is a given at DC! We don’t see this as a point of difference. We see this as a non-negotiable and it’s an attitude that is ingrained in all of our staff. With this mantra, we have since expanded our operations in NSW by setting up camp in Potts Point in an old heritage listed Laundry adequately named The DC Laundry.

We are a Melbourne coffee roaster, simply because our manufacturing infrastructure is there, but we have been servicing the Sydney and Adelaide markets since day one. We found that in Sydney, we needed a base for our team and a place that we could show off the potential of coffee, so we created the space that is the DC Laundry. This space isn’t a cafe, it is part showroom, part cupping room and part disco.

So after more than 10 years we are still looking to get better every day – it’s just what we do.


We love to create great coffee experiences, as we’re sure you do to. Great coffee experiences are not limited to the hippest cafe with the latest extraction method being executed by a single origin samurai. We bring our coffee to culture, we bring culture to our coffee. It’s where we share and find inspiration that is influenced by people and culture not the specialty coffee scene. 

Our Process: Our process is built around a complete understanding of every element from cultivation through to extraction and if we don’t understand it we will pull it apart until we do. Its not rocket science we just give coffee an enormous amount of respect so you will be duly rewarded.

Research and Development: this is where we cup, cup, cup and cup once more for good measure. Also green beans are sourced, roast profiles are engineered, blends are conceived and brewing methods perfected. Essentially we have more stats on our coffee than footy team has on its players.
Production: the nerve centre of Ducale, its where all of the hard work in R&D comes to fruition. The process is quite streamlined from green bean loading, roasting, packaging and then delivering the product to your hopper so you can extract some pretty awesome coffee.
Service and Maintenance: keeping your machine running in tiptop condition is a priority for us, if it’s failing you than it killing our coffee it’s as simple as that.
Account management: we want you to do better and we are here to help. If you need barista training in house or at our house, keeping you up to date with new single origins and industry news or just giving you a shoulder to cry on.
