Welcome to Rabbit Island Coffee Co.  

We make specialty coffee beverages and gourmet milkshakes from a shipping container in a paddock.  We are located on the road to Rabbit Island, hence the name, which is about 20 min drive from Nelson city, at the top of the South Island in New Zealand.  For a map click here.

We take our coffee very seriously and apply the latest specialty coffee skills and techniques. We use science principles and our sense of taste to guide us in making delicious espresso based beverages. Buy our coffee beans online today.

Our gourmet milkshakes are either made with local fruit or a home-made sauce blended with loads of vanilla ice cream making them super thick and yummy.  We think you will really love them!

In December 2015, we are expanding into a real brick and mortar location at Mapua Wharf.   This will mean you can get our goodies all year round.  Don't fret, the container will open for the summer months so you can enjoy that true "coffee in a paddock" experience.

We hope to see you soon. x
