Coast the first region to establish coffee roasters guild

COFFEE lovers rejoice - the Sunshine Coast has became the first region in Australia to establish a coffee roasters guild.

The Sunshine Coast Coffee Roasters Guild is made up of six individual roasters and will work to establish the region as the coffee capital of Queensland.

Kris McDonald, from Montville Coffee Roasters, said there were many benefits to coming together as a group.

"Working as a guild we have a firmer foundation to be able to grow the quality of coffee across the Sunshine Coast," he said.

"As a group we can also take advantage of green bean buying opportunities and bring coffee farmers to the Sunshine Coast to learn with us about improving quality in the entire process from the bean to the cup."

Pioneer Coffee Roastery's Jo Bennett said every coffee roaster in the Sunshine Coast guild was passionate about what they did.

The guild will make its first public appearance at the Sunshine Coast Real Food Festival on September 12 and 13 as part of the inaugural Coffee Roasters' Marquee.
