Our Story

When Atomica Coffee opened in 1996, there was novelty value in what it provided; the eager Fitzroy crowd came to Atomica because it was the first cafe in Melbourne to roast coffee beans on-site. From then on, Atomica Coffee has been making a name for itself in the coffee world by providing boutique coffee roasting and wholesaling to our friends in the industry.

Atomica was leading the industry by experimenting with roasting techniques, defying blending traditions and always looking to find the best extraction methods. 21 years later we’re firmly heading for the future but will never forget the ethos it created all those years ago: to source the finest quality green beans, roast them individually and expertly blend them to ensure you enjoy every cup.

Our Philosophy

We always respect the past. Our roasts will always taste like coffee. Utilising our vast experience and modern techniques we have the ability to change and produce coffees suited to not only new palates, but various brewing methods from Greek coffee, espresso all the way through to French Press.

Our commitment is, we individually roast each bean to its optimum flavour profile. We never batch roast. Product first. No shortcuts on quality.

Blending & Roasting

We roast a distinct selection of Arabica beans individually before blending to ensure that each varietal maintains its unique flavor. This way we precisely achieve a remarkable consistency in each blend, time after time.

Bean characteristics vary harvest to harvest so it is imperative we are consistently cupping our product and tweaking our formulas to ensure you get the best of our blends…always.
