All about us
(and you, and those amazing farmers).

Our happy community started back in 2016 when founders Amelia and Yosir realised all the amazing potential that can radiate from a single cup of coffee. Today, from our roastery and café in beautiful Ballina, New South Wales, we not only source, roast, sample, and brew, we put our heart and soul into ensuring our coffee Tastes Good and Feels Good….

Our team deliver Happy every day; and every time you chose OQ you also help deliver Good to amazing places.

Coffee That
Feels Good.

We’re creating a community of shared positivity by fostering respectful relationships with those that cultivate our Daily Happy; the passionate and skilful ethnic minority coffee farmers across Southeast Asia. OQ farmers are firmly at the top of the supply chain and are celebrated as the heart of our happy community. And we hold ourselves responsible through 8 key principles.

1

Personal Relationships

Actually knowing our farmers is the only way to ensure our coffees have zero exploitation in the supply chain

2

Farmers Set Their Price

Farmers set their own price, based on their unique requirements, so they can direct their own future.
3

Purchase Harvests in Advance

We provide year on year purchasing guarantees meaning better cash flow and more security for OQ farmers
4

Support Ethnic Minority People

90% of our coffees are grown by ethnic minorities. Celebrating cultural diversity inspires our personal Daily Happy.
5

Favour Small Holders

Working with small farms ensures traceability and supports diverse and organic agriculture.
6

Exclusively South-East Asia

Southeast Asian coffees are delicious but underrepresented in the Aussie coffee industry. We’re here to change that.
7

Directly Support Community Projects

We aim to understand each farmer’s needs as identified by them, not by us. We support projects directly to create greater impact
8

Organic as the Standard

All our coffees are organic. It’s better for the planet and better for us. Plus, less inputs on the farm means better economic viability for farmers

Coming from
a Good Place

We’re on a mission to show the world that Southeast Asian coffees are serious global contenders! We are Australia’s only specialty coffee roastery that sources 100% Southeast Asian green beans.

Southeast Asia offers terroir with diverse environmental, climatic, and geological conditions that deliver unique and delicious tasting coffees.

Our closest neighbours in Asia have so far been overlooked but the farmers we know are pioneering speciality coffee in their own backyards and we’re backing them all the way.

Tastes Good. Like really good!

This coffee has been tended, picked and roasted by those that really know their stuff. We’re not all that serious, but we’re serious about quality. Not only do we strive to honour the hard work that goes into growing and processing these exceptional beans but we’re also responsible for your Daily Happy, and that’s a job we’re seriously happy about.

So serious in fact, we sample ("cup") every batch before it heads
out the door. I mean someone's got to do it.

Goodness Gracious.

I've enjoyed the Baristas Choice Coffee Subscription in Melbourne during 2021 - OQCM's coffee is first rate, the variety is interesting & unique, the business model; inspiring. Subscription service was above & beyond - Amelia went out of her way to provide excellent, friendly customer service. 10/10 would recommend!” Tiffany Smith - Google
”I've been buying this coffee for 2 years now and it's honestly the best coffee I've had so far. The Vietnam K'Ho is definitely my fave but all their coffees are bloody delicious. I was a little late placing my orders sometimes so now I order through their subscription service which is super convenient, plus saves me paying for shipping! 10/10 recommend to anyone who loves coffee.” Beatrice Eichler - Google
OMG if you haven’t tried this coffee yet you need too. How refreshing is it to drink coffee that hasn’t been over roasted and you can taste all the individual flavours of each bean? I’m hooked. Knowing it’s ethically sourced makes it taste even better.
Thanks OQ. Tom Bridge - Product Review
