Welcome to Rabbit Island Coffee Co.

Our goal at Rabbit Island Coffee Co. is to be your favorite coffee roaster by offering quality green beans with distinctive roast & taste profiles. 

Our coffees are carefully selected from our direct-trade partners with you in mind. We roast it to be fresh, delicious & perfectly suited to the sophisticated Kiwi palate. 

Our space is designed for you to get close to the roasting process and sample an array of coffees and brew methods. You will find us located on the picturesque Mapua Wharf, about 40 minutes drive from Nelson, New Zealand. We love what we do and happily share it with you. We hope to see you soon.

About Us

Our Ethical Values

Rabbit Island Coffee Co. supports all initiatives that work towards a fair and equitable exchange between coffee seller & coffee buyer.  We are humbled by the commitment & work carried out by coffee farmers all over the world who bring us truly amazing coffees each and every year.

We take great pride in knowing all the coffees we purchase are of the highest quality, have been fairly traded & that the coffee farmer is been rewarded for an outstanding product.

We believe the growth of the micro-roasting movement has been monumental in bringing about positive change in the green coffee market. When you purchase coffee from a specialty roaster you are helping a coffee farmer get a fair price for their produce. Thank you.
