Wolfpack Coffee Roasters
Wolfpack Coffee Roasters is a cafe with an on-site roaster. It reopened in Mortlake in February 2019 around the corner from its previous spot after outgrowing its old digs.
Wolfpack roasts coffee according to the philosophy of a real wolf pack’s hierarchy. There are four varieties. At the top of the pecking order is Alpha, a dark, chocolatey fruit blend of beans from Ethiopia, Brazil and Kenya meant for milk-based coffees. Beta, a lighter roast, is for filter and pour-overs. Delta is decaf and Omega is a single-origin roast. Two years of experimentation went into developing the current range.
For a cafe without a kitchen, Wolfpack does a good job of turning out delicious food. There’s a rotating menu of gourmet toasties featuring condiments by Drunken Sailor Jam as well as regular cafe fare such as smashed avocado on toast, yoghurt and fruit bowls.
The space is bright and at certain times of the day you can see the coffee being roasted in a glass-walled room at the back. White subway tiles adorn the wall behind the coffee bar, and industrial elements like polished concrete, exposed pipes and ductwork mirror Mortlake’s industrial roots.
