Quality

We’re just as uncompromising on our quality as we are on our sustainable credentials.


Coffee geeks

Our quality program and all roasting and blending is managed for Turning Point by Stu – a head judge at the World Barista Championships, a two-time NZ Coffee Tasting champion and NZ’s only Coffee Quality Institute Assistant Instructor.

The key to our quality program is innovation, technological developments and keeping ahead of trends within the coffee industry


Quality from source

We only source the highest quality, specialty organic coffee from coffee growers around the world.  Over the years Stu has built strong relationships with like-minded quality focused producers and has worked closely with growers to help improve processes and quality at the source.  


Consistent Quality

Quality is important, but so is consistency of that quality.  We have one of the world’s most advanced roasting systems.  Roasting with infra-red elements equals more control as well as less emissions.  Our computer profiling system and light specification colour testing, gives us exact repeatability, so we know every batch will be consistently delicious.  Once roasted our coffee is measured, hand packed , sealed and labelled carefully to ensure that each bag is perfect.


Final test

We assess, grade and taste every delivery of green beans as well as every batch of roasted product before it leaves the roasting cave. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it.


Always fresh

Fresh is best! We roast every day and monitor freshness of every delivery! Our packaging might be compostable, but it still maintains optimum quality.
