We opened Sample Coffee Shop in Surry Hills on 2011 as a hole-in-the-wall cafe focused on brewing and serving delicious coffee.

In 2014 we stepped up the game and opened Sample Coffee Roasters & Pro Shop in St Peters: a place that  gave  us more control over the roasting process and a one-stop shop for all your home-brewing needs.

Using our unique 60+ years old refurbished German roasters, we roast exciting blends and single origin batches that highlight each bean’s unique flavours. Come next door and see it yourself!

Our food menu is made possible by local makers and suppliers (Penny Fours, Dust Bakehouse, The Vege Box, Two Providores, Nick’s Food Milk More, Nicholsons & Saville, Shortstop) and our chefs, who brainstorm unique dishes highlighting the best of each season.

At Sample Coffee we proudly curate every step that makes your experience possible: from sourcing and trading, to roasting, cooking and serving.

We know that to produce a high quality cup of coffee, everyone involved in the process needs to feel safe, supported and fairly treated.

This is why at Sample we work hard to make a positive impact in the lives of everyone who makes your coffee possible, from the farmers and their families to the packaging team and your own barista.

It’s because we love great coffee.
