Its all about the taste
It all started in 2009 with me, Ken Shi, working as a Barista at a well known coffee roaster in South Auckland. I also got involved with the roasting of the coffee as well as repairing coffee machines. The team received several awards for the coffees roasted there and I am proud to have been part of that team. I learned a lot from there and when the opportunity arrived for me to go on my own I was a skilled Barista, Taster and Roaster.
Aoraki Coffee was established in 2017. In 2018 we received a Silver and a Bronze award at the Melbourne International Coffee Awards. Later in 2018 we received two Bronze awards and one Silver award at The Golden Bean Awards.
I am also the 2017 Cup Taster Champion and am a National Barista Competition judge as well as a National Latte Art Competition judge.
Basically I love all things coffee and love sharing, educating and supplying the best tasting coffee to New Zealanders.
