Reuben Hills - Surry Hills - Drop Coffee

Reuben Hills - Surry Hills

"Reuben Hills is a boutique micro roastery based in Surry Hills which has been in operation since January 2012. We roast coffee which is showcased in the café downstairs, as well as in other cafes around Australia through our wholesale channel.

We travel around the world to producing countries (origin), meeting the farmers, cupping their coffees and selecting beans, so we can provide our customers with coffee that was sourced directly from farmers, celebrating their work and introducing their coffees to the western world.

On a day to day basis, we are a café which focuses on unique, delicious food and exceptional customer service. Our food is best described as inspired by our coffee origin trips, with a real emphasis on the quality of the coffee and paying tribute to all the hard work it takes to get the coffee in the cup. We strive for this quality to filter down through all aspects of the business."



"The idea behind our House Blend is to showcase the best of our seasonal coffees. We have a bright and elegant Ethiopian bringing stone fruit and apricots to the cup. Paired with Brazil Carmo De Minas Peaberry adding viscosity and a caramel sweetness. A well balanced espresso enjoyed with milk or black.

We always aim to support our producers long term. With the goal to increase the quality of production through farmer training, improved agricultural practices and providing the latest information on sustainable farming. We do this by paying our producers some of the highest returns for their coffee as directly as possible. We strongly believe in establishing a transparent, trust-based relationship with smallholder farmers. Helping to support sustained industry growth as best as we can."

" Located in Gedeo Zone of the Gedeb District, Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for it's densely layered semi-forest vegetation structure, encompassed by shade grown coffee trees. Chelbesa is a great example coffee growing Agro-Ecology. The fermentation tanks of the wet mill are all ceramic. By using this material it holds heat for a longer period of time. Speeding up the fermentation process, which in turn helps bring great clarity to the coffees they process. This is our fourth year purchasing from this region, we looking forward to it every year."
