We are happy to announce Danes Specialty Coffee as our featured coffee partner for Maitland Aroma 2019.

Crowned the Champion Australian Roaster by the Australian International Coffee Awards in both 2018 and 2019, Danes have an enduring reputation as specialty coffee innovators.

Danes believes coffee should be about flavour. It’s what drives their customers and it guides every element of their roastery, retail, training and wholesale activities.

At Maitland Aroma, Danes will show you how coffee flavours can vary through the expression of sweetness, aroma, body and finish – to help you define your favourite flavour. Whether you drink your coffee white or black, understanding how to articulate the flavours you like best is the key to enjoying delicious coffee. 

In 2019, Danes celebrates 25 years of innovating the specialty coffee industry and 20 years of teaching baristas and coffee lovers about flavour filled coffee at their SCA accredited training facility in Sydney.

With a new look and a team of trailblazing coffee pros, Danes continues to bring a fresh approach, always unearthing new flavours to experience. Their recent haul of 61 gold, silver and bronze awards for their origins, blends and cold brew in recent years makes Danes a roaster not to be missed this Aroma Festival.

You can catch these flavour focused roasters in our shipping container and on the main stage over the weekend for their home barista demos and the Danes Flavour Class. They’ll be helping coffee lovers understand how to get the best flavour when brewing with Delter Press, Hario V60 and Aeropress. Visit them in the Danes container to talk one on one with top baristas about all things coffee and grab some of their award winning beans to take home.
