WHO WE ARE
We are a Melbourne based Indian - Italian duo passionate about fine coffee.
The idea to craft Melbourne’s first Indian Filter Coffee was the result of a caffeine fueled discussion about how people drink coffee around the world. While several different styles of coffee have made it down under, we realised how little known the Indian Filter Coffee is.
Our unique blend of the finest Indian specialty coffees along with a healthy dose of chicory, pays homage to the classic Indian filter coffee which is steeped in tradition. In the southern states of India, where this type of coffee originates, the word ‘kaapi’ transcends linguistic and cultural differences, and translates to coffee.
All our coffees are locally batch roasted and blended at our Minerva micro-roastery in Kew, which was established in 2009.
We use a sample roaster for quality testing green beans and a state-of-the-art STA Impianti drum roaster specifically suited for roasting small batches of coffee.
With Kaapi we aim to give locals the true taste of the much loved Indian filter coffee that has been around for centuries.
See you around!
