Proud Petone locals, Jason and Cate Hall, began roasting coffee in 2001 to supply our first cafe Go-Bang Espresso; whilst also fulfil a passion for coffee roasting. Now, there are 4 independent Ripe Cafes operating, Origin and Small Batch in the Hutt Valley and Haurora and Microlot in Wellington CBD. Our coffee production takes place within the unilever factory complex in Petone; whilst around the corner at Small Batch, our production kitchen operates and our retail store is placed.
With quality at the centre of our operations, our green bean selection, roasting and cups of coffee are all irreproachable. We are lucky to have a team of passionate people working in our company who follow this philosophy with pride and joy. Additionally we emphasise relationship coffee in everything we do; whether it is with our farmers, producers, suppliers or customers, our focus is on developing and sustaining relationships that drive quality and innovation.
