Pamela Quennell and partner Geoff are the owners of Coffee Que.
16 years ago, their adventure into coffee roasting began.
They have a love for really good coffee, so Geoff set about enquiring as to buying a small 250g coffee roaster and then sourced some green beans from various countries through an importer in Melbourne.
Coffee roasters, and good freshly roasted coffee was just starting to become the latest trend, particularly in Melbourne, and instant coffee from the supermarket was not the go, for the customer who had experienced freshly roasted coffee from the many cafes who had espresso machines.
After many roasts and many tastings and involving friends to do some tasting of the different coffees they roasted, they felt confident to start selling freshly roasted coffee to the public.
They started selling 15 years ago at the Mildura Field days, and then attended the Sunraysia Farmers Market, and have been attending ever since.
They buy their coffee beans in Indonesian, Guatemala, Indian Tiger, Costa Rica, Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia, and Brazil.
Coffee Que are boutique coffee roasters as they don’t have a retail shop, but supply to some restaurants and cafes locally and have customers from Melbourne, Qld, and NSW that have bought Coffee Que from the market, and love it enough to have it sent through the post.
