About The Strictly Coffee Company

Strictly Coffee has been an icon on the Dunedin coffee scene for 20 + years. From the original roastery situated just off the Octagon on Bath St, our company has come from its humble beginnings as a cosy café and roastery that only the true coffee lovers found, to now having a national distribution to Cafés and homes baristas alike. With our original roaster still in Bath St, we expanded by developing a Headquarters in Frederick St to organise our main roasting supply and distribution, with a new roaster installed in 2014 to keep up with the Strictly Coffee demand.

We are often referred to as ‘Dunedin’s Boutique Coffee Roasting Company’. Specialising in buying, roasting, blending and supplying only the highest quality of beans with the goal to produce and provide our customers with the best espresso blends on the market.  We also roast and blend Organic Fair Trade beans using the same criteria of excellence as our house blend and provide a delicious decaf option for those who need their coffee fix without the caffeine.

Currently, we supply coffee to approximately 500 cafes and restaurants throughout Otago, Southland, West Coast and South Canterbury, and we continue to make our mark on the rest of the South Island. We offer a comprehensive coffee machine service with specialist staff and technicians employed directly on our team and operating out of our warehouse or coming to you. We are able to supply a range of new and second-hand coffee machines, grinders, and other coffee accessories.

Strictly Coffee HQ, Roastery, Cafe, and Warehouse

Situated close to the University and stadium, these modern and spacious premises were recently developed to cope with an ever expanding and growing business. This site houses our main roasting operation, warehouse storage, extensive coffee machine workshop, head office/administration, and a trendy retro takeaway cafe, called appropriately, ‘HQ’. The cafe has been designed to facilitate training for the staff of our wholesale clients.

Strictly Coffee Success

The goals and objectives that our company strive for are to produce and supply coffee of an exceptionally high standard.

A significant accomplishment that the company has made over the years is the growth of the distribution of coffee beans around New Zealand. So much so, that in 2014 we had to commission a new and bigger coffee roaster. The sourcing, importation, renovation, and installation of this took up a large part of 2014. Now still, we have a Petroncini hot air drum roaster at our HQ.

Evidence of the quality and success of Strictly Coffee lies within awards we have won over the years which include:

  • Bronze medal in the NZ Roasting and cupping awards 2014
  • Winner of Otago – Southland Top Shop Food and beverage award (Bath St)
  • Runner-up for the overall Top Shop Award 2014
  • Runner-up in Online retailer 2014
  • Bronze Medal in the Australian International Coffee Awards 2015

We attribute these great achievements to our constant strive for quality in all aspects of our business. Our staff, service, product, and systems have set the bar very high and because of this, we will never compromise on quality making it easy to be proud of what we do.
We are very proud to be based in Dunedin and taking our brand of espresso throughout the South Island.
