Ickle - Alexandria

“Ickle coffee is run by sisters
Rowena and Kate with a focus on roasting exceptionally high quality specialty coffee,
and a desire to only roast coffees we
would love to drink everyday. All our
coffee is sourced from ethical coffee
importers who use sustainable practices and give back to the coffee grower’s communities and invest in the quality
of their livelihoods as well as the quality
of the coffee produced.”

Welcome to Ickle! A tiny roaster run out of ECRE Co-roasting space. Other roasters we've featured; Artificer & stitch also roast out of here. Ickle has just secured a lease to open its first store some time this year! With there great coffee and fun branding there's no doubt they'll do well. Enjoy your coffees!
