Our story

Since its pioneering foray into coffee way back in 1996, with its mantra of “changing the way coffee is perceived in the bush”, Adrian & Gabrielle Capra (pictured right), founders of independent specialty coffee brand, Art of Espresso, continue a dedicated focus on direct trade with a firm belief towards ethical and sustainable business practices, whilst allowing the brand to focus on its expertise, that being the coffee, barista training and customer relations.

Direct Farm Trade 

Human Beans for Peace is our way of reconnecting with our Mother Earth and each other, in ways that are real and positive. Through our philosophy of supporting coffee growers and their families socially, ethically and sustainably, comes our award winning range of farm direct and single origin blends. 

Just damn Great Coffee

the whole coffee vibe…

We truly love our coffee here at 35 Main St! We also luuurv our musicians, an unmistakeable fact!

Music plays a major part in the espresso bar with a firm nod to Australian independent roots music…just like the coffee really. This love transformed literally by introducing random live one-off gigs in the bar. It came to fruition one afternoon over an espresso, a home brew and some cracking tunes.
