Set on the corner of Fitzroy's Rose Street, two brothers Trevor and Steve Simmons have transformed an open warehouse into a resourceful space that offers everything from a lively cafe, an ambitious roastery, an upstairs cupping lab and expert coffee training facilities.
At Industry Beans customers can expect top-grade product and intriguing flavours sourced anywhere from the Sumatran hills to the plantations of Panama, on a daily list featuring nine different origins.
Determined to keep everything in house, Trevor and Steve serve homemade bread, butter and chocolate. Fresh fruit juices are bottled on premises and a new Industry Tea brand is set to follow.
Working with Penny Farthing head chef, Shaun Landman, the breakfast and lunch menu is also as enthusiastic and ambitious as the coffee with all ingredients sourced locally.
Dishes will include beetroot rostis with smoked eel, tarragon, watercress and crisp samphire, house-cured salmon on char grilled corn bread, cornichon oil, grape fruit and shallots, along with a brioche bunny burger served with veggie crisps.
Those who are simply after a new hangout shouldn’t feel unwelcome either. Industry Beans includes any interested customers and is suitable for all.
