Founded in 2006 by Sam Gabrielian, the heart of Gabriel Coffee starts at our roastery, where all the magic happens. Our consistency without compromise approach is what fuels the drive to deliver quality across all our coffees, techniques and relationships around Sydney and beyond.
In the early 2000s, the term 'Specialty Coffee' was a foreign concept, with the market being dominated by traditionalists and sticklers for old world techniques. Having a desire to go against the grain, Sam moved from managing his family cafe to roasting, entering and learning the trade that would become the foundation of one of Sydney's most recognisable coffee brands.
Building on this newfound passion, Sam would go on to participate in various competitions and also become appointed chairman of the 2004 ASCA Barista Guild. As demand for his coffee increased, this set in stone the wholesale business that is now Gabriel Coffee. Today, our roastery is based in Sydney's lower North Shore, where the continuous journey of sourcing the world's best green coffee offerings takes centre stage alongside our commitment to produce consistency without compromise across our blends & specialty origin selections. Sourcing beans that aren't typically 'off the shelf' gives way to unique coffee experiences that we aim to share with you and your community.
Our small team of dedicated industry professionals thrives on the conversation of coffee and understanding the relationships between farm, roast & end brewing process is a source of our innovation and drive to showcase the best of what we do. Don't be led astray by the science and data that dominates today's coffee circles, we invite you to evaluate with your senses the next time you have your Gabriel Coffee experience.
Which coffee is right for me?
Do you prefer coffee with or without milk? Our espresso blends are tailored for milk coffees (Flat White, Latte, Cappucino etc) and are also what you have at your local cafe that serves Gabriel Coffee.
For a next level black coffee experience, our Single Origin releases are the way to go. Sourced direct from origin, these coffees aim to showcase the fine flavour profiles that each country & farm has to offer.
Pre-ground or Whole Bean?
We always recommend buying whole bean and grinding coffee fresh each time you brew. Pre-grinding coffee beans leaves more surface area to be affected by temperature and humidity, leading to faster aging and loss of flavour if not used quickly.
Our Rhinowares Hand Grinder is an awesome choice for a space saving grinder at home.
What are Aeropress, Hario & Kalita?
These are all brands of equipment that allows you to brew a coffee that's different to your traditional espresso or stovetop methods. Commonly referred to as a filter coffee or alternative brew on a cafe menu, expect a lighter, easier drinking black coffee experience.
Our shop section has everything you need to get started at home.
How long do coffee beans last? Do I need to age it before drinking?
From our experience, when whole beans coffee are stored in a sealed container in dry, cool spot, we've found that it's good up to 4 weeks.
We aim to send you coffee that's around 2-4 days after roasting. By the time you receive it, you can start to brew without hesitation.
