Mary Street Bakery’s outlets are a comfort stop for many coffee drinkers. This is the operation’s dedicated coffee roastery.
This specialty coffee shop is on the Hay Street edge of Hibernian Place and houses the operation that produces the coffee used in all Mary Street outlets (Highgate, West Leederville, Allendale Square, QV1).
As Mary Street expanded the team realised it could start roasting its own coffee. It started with single origin and grew from there.
Offshoot’s coffee roaster is a high-tech Loring S15 Falcon imported from America. Whereas traditional roasters apply heat directly to the spinning drum that contains the coffee beans – think how a tumble-dryer works – the Loring applies heat to the air inside the drum for increased efficiency and accuracy.
One side of Offshoot is devoted to a self-service food station for customers to collect takeaway items on the way to ordering their coffee. T-shelves are packed with familiar Mary Street Bakery treats, sandwiches, salad bowls and breakfast offerings. There are retail coffee products to buy, and seating available outside the venue and in Hibernian Place.
