The Journey

My name is Tamsyn and I am a specialty coffee roaster based in Wentworthville, Western Sydney. And roasting out of one of Sydney’s best established roastery’s Black Drum Roasters in Blacktown. Established in 2016, a.k.a. Coffee supplies direct to households in Parramatta, Ryde and Hills Districts and ships Australia wide.

Since moving to Australia from New Zealand over ten years ago, I have always been working within or around the coffee industry. Having sold my café to concentrate on being a full-time mum to my two beautiful children, the time came when I wanted to achieve a balance in my home and work life. I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to learn about roasting coffee and as a result bought my own little roaster.

As I increasingly became unofficial coffee supplier to family and friends I noticed that there was an opportunity to further develop the business and share my knowledge and love of what I do with others and a.k.a. Coffee was born!

I am dedicated to the responsible sourcing of coffee and choose traceable coffees from trusted suppliers to ensure this.

Today my passion remains sharing the wonderful flavours and stories of coffee and combining this with highly personalised  service with a sole purpose to contribute to a beautiful coffee experience in your home or workplace.

I love that I have been able to cater to specific tastes and/or requirements of my customers. Each blend and product has been developed from an original idea of what it could be and then shaped through the feedback received from my customers.

My slogan “Heart to Home” was established to reflect the journey of coffee, from origin countries all the way to your home is very long, and great coffee is the result of the hard work and dedication of many people along the way and I am honoured to offer a.k.a. Coffee to you.

Wishing you Good Times and Great Coffee.
