Beanhunter Coffee Club – Tin Man Coffee Roasters

In 2014 Benjamin Stronach and Natalie Kirwan opened the doors of The Queensberry Pour House in Melbourne after stumbling upon the location on a early morning bike ride through Carlton.This is where our featured roaster this week, Tin Man Coffee Roasters, came to life joining the fast pace coffee community ingrained in Melbourne’s culture.

The Head roasters Benjamin Stronach, Natalie Kirwan and Hyunsuk Ko stand by being unique. “We believe every cup of coffee is a snowflake and should be celebrated for its uniqueness” and after 15 years of working with coffee Ben now simply hopes “to surprise and delight people with the coffee.”

At Tin Man Coffee Roasters they prefer to steer away from industry standards and instead focus on the ever-changing flavour and lifecycle of coffee. “We change the tasting notes and the way we roast and brew our coffees everyday – it’s an organic product. It’s alive. It changes season to season, day to day. It’s chaos but it’s beautiful.” Adding an individual flare to each roast and each cup of coffee they produce.
