Popular inner-city coffee house serves house blends of freshly roasted beans – plus all-day cafe menu
November 24th, 2014
Among Australia’s leading wholesale coffee roasters since its inception in 2002, Di Bella Coffee have also set up a series of retail roastery and cafe outlets in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle. Operating as Di Bella Coffee Roasting Warehouses, each outlet roasts daily in-house a selection of bean varieties, with the baristas serving one single origin coffee plus two signature blends. In Sydney, the Di Bella Coffee Roasting Warehouse is located in the increasingly fashionable Surry Hills neighbourhood, a vibrant hub for media, design and fashion industries. In addition to its coffee specialties, the Roasting Warehouse kitchen serves an all-day menu of mostly European-style cafe dishes – including hearty breakfasts, salads and sandwiches for lunch, plus freshly backed pastries and cakes. Knowledgeable baristas and friendly service ensure that Roasting Warehouse is an inviting urban haven for the appreciation of fine coffee, complemented by first-rate cafe fare.
Well located in the heart of Surry Hills, the Roasting Warehouse occupies a split-level space within a modern commercial development. A full height glass frontage reveals the spacious interior, a comfortable space with a pared-back contemporary decor of blond timbers, polished concrete floors and white walls. Prominently positioned in the centre of the room, the copper-sheathed coffee roaster is the functional hallmark of the Roasting Warehouse. Well-stocked shelving displays all kinds of coffee-related merchandise for sale – including the Di Bella Signature Coffee blends, Di Bella Coffee Capsules, grinders, percolators, specialised equipment, and coffee related books. For coffee enthusiasts, a series of cupping sessions, coffee appreciation and master classes are held regularly, or by special arrangement.
Di Bella Roasting Warehouse opens early on weekdays, serving breakfast dishes and takeaway coffee from 7:00 am (and from 8:30 am on Saturdays), with the full menu served all day until closing at 4:30 pm. On Saturdays closing time is 2:30 pm, and closed all day on Sundays. Menus are updated seasonally, with new dishes and special events highlighted on the Facebook Page.
