At Padre Coffee, we make more than just lattes.

We pride ourselves on our accessible and evolving retail coffee menu as well as Melbourne’s best selection of coffee equipment, tools and accessories.

Our retail stores are fully stocked with every kind of coffee essential and (of course) freshly roasted beans. Most importantly, we know and love every item that we sell.

The heart and soul of our business is our Roastery and Café at 438 – 440 Lygon Street. Open seven days a week since 2008, the roastery is big and beautifully equipped to meet your coffee and brewing needs.

Padre Coffee South Melbourne Market opened in December 2009 and has been awarded best coffee three years running in the (three year old) Melbourne Market awards. Stall 33 at South Melbourne Market is a small space packed with great coffee and cheery, knowledgable baristas – stopping by for a takeaway and a bag of freshly roasted beans is a must for market shoppers.

More recently, in early 2016 we found ourselves offered a great little opportunity in Melbourne’s CBD, and without thinking twice stepped up, opening a tiny (but gorgeous) café in the beautiful and historic Royal Arcade. Our baristas are loving the stylish setting as well as the change of pace.

Perhaps most exciting of all, March 2016 saw our first interstate venture open its doors. Marinus (Padre Brunswick's founder, recently relocated to the Sunshine Coast) is at the helm of an all-in-one state of the art roastery, cafe & retail store in glorious Noosa! The reception from coffee-loving locals has been extraordinary, and the open, light-filled roastery - built around a stunning vintage Probat UG22 roaster - has become the envy of our Brunswick crew.

When it comes to home brewing, we’re devoted to helping you drink fantastic coffee at-home as well as in store and to that end we stock only the best. There’s nothing on our shelves that we don’t know and love, from the gold-standard of cold drips to the essential and unbreakable Aeropress. We pride ourselves on offering the complete brewing package, with filters, parts and accessories for every device as well as coffee recommendations and brewing tips to help you get the best out of your setup.

Of course, all of the toys and techniques in the world are no good without fantastic, freshly roasted coffee.

Our retail coffee range has been built around beautiful, delicious beans that are accessible and easy to use. We do our best to make sure that our blends are consistently excellent and our single origins carefully curated and interesting, and have something for every coffee drinker; from a fantastically rare and fruity filter roast for your syphon to a strong and chocolately stovetop coffee. Most importantly, we love talking to people about what they like to drink. Give us a call or pop into one of our stores if you’d like to find out more.
